Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has refused to rule out adding herself to the crowded field in the Democrat primary race.
On a tour promoting a book she co-wrote with her daughter Chelsea, called The Book of Gutsy Women, the former New York senator was repeatedly pressed by BBC radio presenter Emma Barnett about whether she would repeat her 2016 run.
Initially replying “no,” the former first lady then said: “I never say never to anything.”
“I think all the time about what kind of president I would have been and what I would have done differently and what I think it would have meant to our country and the world…… So of course I think about it, I think about it all the time. Being able to do that, and look, whoever wins next time is going to have a big task trying to fix everything that’s been broken.”Hillary Clinton
Barnett pursued the line of questioning, noting that former President Bill Clinton had recently refused to rule out another presidential run for his wife.
The BBC presenter asked again: “So you are ruling it out?”
“I, as I say, never, never, never say never. I will certainly tell you, I’m under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it…… But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans.”
ahhhh….. I doubt it….. Hilly left herself some wiggle room at the end of her answer.
The deadline has passed to file on the Democratic primary ballot in a number of states, such as Alabama, Hillary Clinton’s former political heartland of Arkansas and New Hampshire.
