Dem Candidates To Hillary: If the Phone Doesn't Ring, It's Us

Hillary Clinton says that Democratic presidential candidates are not coming to her for advice.

Two-time presidential loser Hillary Clinton said last week that no prospective presidential candidates have sought her advice on a campaign to unseat Donald Trump (assuming he is still president) in 2020. The comments were made in an interview on Wednesday with conservative talk-show host Hugh Hewitt.

Clinton attributed the lack of contact from presidential hopefuls to the fact that the election is three years away. “Nobody’s actually been to see me,” Clinton told Hewitt. “I see Democrats all the time, and nobody has said ‘Hey, I’m going to run,’ or ‘I’m thinking about running, give me advice now,’ because it is too soon.”

While Clinton is correct that the election is still far in the future, there may be other reasons that Democrats are not seeking her advice. Clinton ran one of the most lackluster campaigns in recent history. Although there are many reasons why Hillary Clinton is not president today, one of the most fundamental errors was her failure to campaign in the Rust Belt states. Donald Trump’s unexpected wins in these states allowed him to eke out an Electoral College victory.

Aside from not letting up on the campaigning, there are other things that Hillary could tell a 2020 candidate. For example, don’t do anything to trigger an FBI criminal investigation of yourself, especially in an election year. If you are under an investigation, it’s probably best to sit out 2020 and focus on 2024.

Hillary might also say that a 2020 candidate needs a message other than “I want to be president.” The 2016 Clinton campaign seemed to be centered around the theme that voters should elect her because she wanted to make history as the first woman president. Her lack of an agenda to correct the problems of the Obama Administration was equivalent to campaigning for “four more years” of an unpopular president who presided over eight years of economic doldrums. Voters were ready for a change.

“There may be some private planning going on by some people,” Clinton said. “I wouldn’t know who. I wouldn’t hazard a guess. But in terms of actually seeking out advice, people have said, 'hey, I want to come talk to you.' But I haven’t had those conversations, in large measure, because I’ve said I’m going to focus next year on 2018, and then, you know, I’ll be happy to talk.”

There may be another reason that the 2020 hopefuls are steering clear of Hillary. The era of Clinton domination of the Democratic Party appears to have drawn to a close as prominent Democrats like Donna Brazile distance themselves from the both Hillary and Bill. Democrats are beginning to acknowledge that the Clintons were corrupt, beholden to Wall Street and covered up Bill’s sexual misbehavior for decades. In short, the Clintons are becoming pariahs among leftist political activists.

After Hillary’s embarrassing loss to Donald Trump and the subsequent revelations about secret Clinton control of the Democratic National Committee, it may be that potential candidates see Hillary as more of a liability than an asset. As Hillary makes the rounds on her book tour and desperately tries to stay relevant, it is likely that her phone will stay silent. The calls from 2020 hopefuls are probably going to Bernie Sanders.

There is justice and in Hillary's case it is called KARMA. Hillary is all about Hillary and, finally, the American people are awakening to that basic Fact.

Most people don't try to learn how to swim by tying a 50 lb weight around their feet and then jumping in.

It is obvious that the Democrat Party is trying to put the Clintons down. That is what Brazile's book is all about. The remaining power players have decided to take the Clintons out before she gets a chance to run again. That is what we are seeing. They are using the shady tactics against Sanders (of which Brazile was a co-conspirator in), Bill's history of rape and sexual assault and Hillary's failure of a campaign to destroy them prior to the 2020 primary. There is no way Brazile releases that book, with those charges, without approval from the party.

Hillary is trying to seed a new narrative: namely, that there is really NO ONE on the Dem side who is actually interested in running in 2020. (If there were, she coyly suggests, they would OF COURSE be seeking her advice... And yes, she really believes they would!) She wants (needs) the prevailing narrative to be: Hillary is the INEVITABLE Dem candidate in 2020. She is still obsessed with becoming President and as long as she is above ground she will not desist. She is thoroughly delusional -- but what's new?

All they need to do is read her book and do the opposite. I wouldn't call her either if I didn't have to.

Gee, Eric, "Why" wouldn't Trump be president in 2018???? Elitist NWO DC Swamp of ChamberPot Repubs and DemocRats plan on impeaching him????
