Hillary Rodham Clinton has let it be known that, according to her, “many, many, many people” want her to run for president of the United States of America.
OK, here we go.
I would vote for her again, more than likely, were she to win the Democratic Party nomination against Donald J. Trump.
However, I do not want her to run. I do not want her to muddy up the water. Nor do I want her to offer herself up as a sort of piñata that Trump could pummel were she to seek another nomination.
Hillary Clinton had her moment in the sun. She won the Democratic Party nomination in 2016 with high hopes of cruising to her election as president. She made some terrible errors along the way. She got torpedoed by the FBI director, James Comey, who decided at the last minute to reopen an investigation into the email matter. Trump squeaked past her at the end of the long, bitter and invective-filled campaign.
The Democratic field has been set for some time. It might get another candidate, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
Does it need Hillary Clinton 2.0? No.
Stay on the sidelines, Hillary. Speak out when you think it matters. Endorse the Democratic Party presidential ticket and then campaign for the two of them.
Do not listen to those “many, many, many” fans of yours.
