During her appearance at NY Times “DealBook” conference, asked what it would take for her to run in 2020, Hillary Clinton dodged the question by joking as if she was asked about literally “running.”
Clinton then lamented the 2016 results and said “I think I would have been a really good president.”
You know, I have always been a very, very slow runner. I am embarrassingly slow. I’ve tried to run races and I am so far behind that I start to walk, acting like that was what the plan was all the time. I don’t know that I’m going to take up competitive running right now, but I think you’re asking about something else, aren’t you?
There’s been some teasing and some hinting that, maybe, you’re sitting off in the wings here and waiting for some moment.
Look, I think I would have been a really good president. I think I could have been a very effective leader. We have real divides in the country over all kinds of things, but I certainly, in my time in the Senate and Secretary of State, worked really hard, as you say, to actually solve problems, not exacerbate them or ignore them.
I would have done everything I could to try to get us positioned for the future. That’s what a leader is supposed to do. Elections are supposed to be about the future and leadership should be about the future.
I think I could have done a really good job. I think the last election was deeply flawed and that there were so many unprecedented problems in that election that it’s almost hard to make sense of.

One of Hillary’s supporters responded:
“Sadly your loss was more about deep seeded misogyny than anything else. History will write your story and like many other significant women in history…you will stand out as a leader and pioneer.”

You are a monster.
