According to the poll in TFA, the top two things the respondents say is that she should Raise Money for Charities, and Help Women and Girls.

Perhaps she should Raise Money for Charities Helping Women and Girls.

Yeah, but when she did, they accused her of it being a scam.  Like the Trump Foundation actually is.

Also, but her emails!

How brave, telling the women to get out of politics

Put her energy in to getting Dems that aren't her elected in 2018 and 2020.  She's passed her time to serve again, but she, like Bill, still has the power and connections to play king/queen maker. Just as long as long as her vision of the direction of the party is more what Dems stand for than what they stand against.

 Continue on her life path of public service even in the face of lies and hate so as to further justify the vilification of a large segment of Americans that thought Trump was a better President, person or idea?

So long as the same age restrictions are imposed upon male politicians. Or are you yet another person who believes women need to be disposed of upon an 'expiration date'?

Because the job she wants is President and she's been beaten twice with once being to Donald Trump.

If we want to expand economic growth, we need people to retire later.

I cannot see how that would be financially beneficial for her.  Unless it's for Chelsea's sake.  She would be an idiot to run for anything again...so she doesn't need to cultivate any good will.

Ok. Bob Dole, Al Gore, George HW Bush, Michael Dukakis, Walter Mondale, George McGovern.  Unless you're Adlai Stevenson, when you've lost 2 presidential races then you find something meaningful to do other than personally run for office.

Easy:  __________, you've lost in the primary and you've lost in the general.  You're a two-time loser.  Maybe it's time for you to realize that your ambitions and the desires of the voters are not in alignment.

Not to rain on your parade, but many modern male candidates for POTUS only run once. The time they get the nomination. For example: Al Gore, John Kerry, Bob Dole, John McCain, Mitt Romney etc.

In fact, you have to go back to 1952 and 1956 to find a candidate that lost and managed to get the nomination a second time. And he got trashed by Ike both times.

Bravery has nothing to do with. I was stating my opinion.

She isn't helping anyone by staying in the public eye.

Especially with her releasing an "Its everybodies fault but mine" book every other freakin month.

Been thinking. Back in the day, Ted Kennedy was the official Dem bogeyman. Hilary has stepped into the role now that he's no longer around. Best thing she can do is stay highly visible, keeping Fox News viewers distracted while a new generation of Dems attains national prominence.

I don't care what plumbing a politician has, as long as they are qualified, competent, and effective.

Hillary possesses only one and a half of those qualities.

And anyone only half effective is more of a hindrance than a boon.

'Hillary Clinton is doing what every single high-profile ex-politician does. BURN THE WITCH!"

The only reason she won't "go away" is because the media has a massive hate-boner for her, and thus treats every completely ordinary thing she does like it's new and scandalous.
 
2017-09-10 10:57:34 AM  
I would hope she would put country before party, and herself, and do whatever is best to see Dems take seats in 2018 and the White House in 2020. Unjust or not, she polarizes people. Enough that a farking dunce like trump could win. There would be no variance in the GOP playbook running against her because it worked once and would work again. Hillary causes a bunch of nominally sane, moderately intelligent people across the spectrum to lose their ever loving minds. In two years time no one will be able to convince these people she isn't the horror they believe her to be. IMO, her running again would just provide more evidence to the already convinced and might even push more liberals and democrats away. They may not go GOP but not voting at all doesn't help. I hope she realizes the current state our White House is in and does all she can to make sure the Dems gain ground in 2018 and in 2020. The stakes are too high if the GOP and trump remain in place.

Let's face it for the good of her ego she's going to run again and on the day she announces it Trump may as well start planning his second inauguration.
