Hillary Clinton is giving signs that she is seriously mulling another run for the White House, and a top aide and ally is not dissuading people from believing just that.

Philippe Reines, a veteran spokeman and consigliere who served as her gatekeeper in the Senate and State Department and played Donald trump during 2016 debate preparations, encouraged Democrats to look at Clinton again and laid out a rationale for a 2020 candidacy.

“It’s curious why Hillary Clinton’s name isn’t in the mix—either conversationally or in formal polling—as a 2020 candidate,” he told told Politico. “She’s younger than Donald Trump by a year. She’s younger than Joe Biden by four years. Is it that she’s run before? This would be Bernie Sanders’ second time, and Biden’s third time. Is it lack of support? She had 65 million people vote for her.”

It was a mistake for Democrats to punish Clinton for the mistakes she made in 2016. “Chalking the loss up to her being a failed candidate is an oversimplification,” he said. “She is smarter than most, tougher than most, she could raise money easier than most, and it was an absolute fight to the death.”

When asked what was the likelihood of her running, he responded: “It’s somewhere between highly unlikely and zero, but it’s not zero.”

Many Democrats have dismissed the idea of another Clinton presidential run, but Reines argues that her base of 32 million people far outweighs any support for other potential candidates, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., or Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.

Clinton dropped out of site immediately after her loss to Trump in November 2016, only to reemerge months later in several extensive televised interviews and a book release that outlined her view of what happened during the campaign.

Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, have come under fire recently as the #MeToo movement continues. The couple has been questioned by politicians and members of the media as to whether they would have handled the Monica Lewinsky scandal differently if it occurred today.

Despite the attacks, especially stemming from when Clinton said her husband did not abuse his power when he engaged in an affair with Lewinsky, the two are embarking on a 13-city tour in November.

Many Democrats see Clinton’s post-candidate life as unhelpful to their agenda, especially in revisiting the sexual scandals involving her husband. Democrats have steered away from having her on the campaign trail. One senior party strategist said she represented “the kiss of death” for candidates.

      As someone aptly put her straight: ” The Kiss of Death. ” She truly represents and this 3rd attempt will place her on the Wheel-Chair if she wants to play God… to the American people

    Democrats complain that President lies. She is the biggest liar EVER and her lies kill people. She is horrid. But, I would personally love it if she ran.

      Why would you love it if she ran, given your initial comments?

        a third loss running for President would really send her over the edge. She has already lost her mind over losing the second time especially when it was to Donald Trump. LOL

    Felonia Milhouse von Pantsuit is not a quitter. A liar, thief, miscreant, slanderer and cheat, but NOT a quitter.

    One has to wonder IF Bernie runs again too will she screw old Bern out of the nomination again….but on the bright side old Bern might just acquire another “beach house” out of the deal…

    This would be a good thing! She’d eliminate her Democrat opponents in the same, or worse, manner that she eliminated Bernie! And I suspect Trump would have no trouble beating her again!

    She would run because thats how she makes her money. Although there won’t be any big contributors to her campaign it’s something, she’s not making much on her speaking tours, and she has no influence to be able to attract any one who wants to Influence

    She runs means trump wins. She is a liar and a cheater. Funny how everyone who is willing to testify against her dies. So she is a murderer as well.

    I say the Dem candidate for 2020 is still unknown and maybe even an “unknown”.

    OH, Hillary, ……….. Please run, … oh PLEASE run! And please, …. keep a pistol in your purse, while watching the returns of the 2020 election. That way, you can end it all, early in the evening, when you get your lyin, murdering ass whipped again. Be sure to “end it” for Bill before you end it for you. And just think, … how much a better place the world will be with your brain, splattered all over the place! Do it, …just DO IT!

    What’s gonna happen if Mueller comes back with the results that Russia didn’t meddle in the election? She can’t use the Russian thing again. Worse is that she wound up convincing a fuckton of celebrities that she was God. Haven’t the left suffered enough? Better vote red so Maxine Waters doesn’t veto this, or we’ll wind up going through another torturous two years of [email protected] trolls going “YOU SUPPORT TRUMP! YOU A RUSSIAN BOT! YOU A VIRGIN LOSER! YOU HAVE NO TEETH!”

    For her to run again would be foolish to the Democratic party. So go ahead and run for office!
    What goes around comes around, when it comes to sexual scandals, it comes back to bite her in the ass….oh….wait….wouldn’t that be sexual harassment for past accusations and scandals to bite her in the ass?
