Will Hillary Clinton run for President in 2020?
Or is she finished as a political candidate?
While Hillary Clinton has not made a definitive statement about her political future since her election loss, her latest move gives a big clue as to her intentions.
And speculation is mounting.
For weeks, Democratic activists and professional protestors have been flooding Republican town halls to create wild scenes and intimidate the GOP from enacting the agenda that won them the election.
The media has lapped up the chaos and tries to paint the picture that the entire nation is rising up against Donald Trump and Republicans.
And Hillary Clinton tweeted out a video message to show her support of the protests.
The Hill reports:
“Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton on Friday showered praise on the wave of protests sweeping the country and urged party faithful to set their sights on elections to come.
“After the primaries we came together as a party to write the most progressive platform in history,” she said in a video message posted on the Democratic Party’s Twitter account. “Ideas we championed are now inspiring leaders and activists across our country.”
“And everywhere people are marching, protesting, tweeting, speaking out and working for an America that’s hopeful, inclusive and big-hearted,” she added…
…“We as Democrats must move forward with courage, confidence and optimism, and stay focused on the elections we must win this year and next,” she said. “Let resistance plus persistence equal progress for our party and our country.”
Let resistance plus persistence equal progress…here was my message to Democrats today.https://t.co/7HpG7dDF6H

Some pundits wondered why she weighed in on this matter.
Now, newly elected Democrat National Committee Chair Tom Perez has given the answer.
Perez – a Clinton ally who defeated the Bernie Sanders-backed Keith Ellison in the DNC chair race – indicated he believes Hillary Clinton might run for President again in 2020.
The Washington Examiner reports:
“New Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez didn’t rule out a Hillary Clinton run for the presidency in 2020 on Sunday.
Perez, speaking on ABC, was asked about Clinton’s continued political statements in the wake of her 2016 defeat to President Trump, including just before the vote for the new DNC chairman Saturday. He said she can run if she wants.
“Everyone who wants to run should run,” he said of the 2020 Democratic primary. “And, I’m confident we’re going to have a robust field of candidates.”
Clinton recorded a meaningless popular vote victory in November.
Since the election, she has made multiple excuses for her loss.
And she tried to delegitimize Trump’s victory by supporting her allies who were demanding recounts and pressuring the Electoral College to switch their votes.
Hillary’s – and her allies’ – actions, as well as her words, now lead many to believe she isn’t closing the door yet on her nearly 30-year quest to become President, despite two failed campaigns.
