There’s been a lot of talk over the last month or so about the possibility of Hillary Clinton making a late entry into the presidential race. Clinton herself has not even put the rumor to rest, most recently telling BBC Radio 5 Live “never say never” when asked about whether or not she’d ruled it out completely.

Clinton seesawed in her response, also stating that “as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”
Since she was defeated by Donald Trump in November 2016, the failed Democratic presidential nominee has repeatedly alleged, without evidence, that the election was stolen, that there was “collusion” between Trump and Russia which enabled his victory. There was also alleged “voter suppression” and “misogyny” and all that which supposedly hampered her ability to win or something.
Doug Schoen, a former advisor to President Bill Clinton and an advisor to Hillary Clinton’s failed 2008 campaign, made an appearance on Laura Ingraham’s program on Fox News Tuesday night and talked about Clinton’s latest remarks regarding whether or not she’s considering a third go at the presidency. His advice?
“Go home. Close the door. Shut your mouth. Be quiet. And just forget about this. I mean, she lost when she shouldn’t have lost. Everything she’s said recently has been nuts.”
When Ingraham laughed and said she thought he was going to advise Clinton to have a glass of chardonnay, Schoen said maybe she should have a “couple of them.”
Rep. Steve Scalise (R-LA) was on the program as well and smiled during the segment, which you can watch below:

I have to say that part of me would like to see her declare her candidacy, if for no other reasons than to watch the other candidates grumble, and to watch the war of words between her and Trump escalate. The urge for her has to be pretty strong, especially considering her obvious hate for Trump.
My prediction is that ultimately she’ll decide she won’t, but if she does, the entertainment value of the presidential race would no doubt skyrocket.
