Hillary Clinton says, 'I'd like to be president,' at NYC event

During a far-ranging interview with Kara Swisher of the technology website Recode (Swisher is also a contributor to The New York Times' Opinion section), Clinton initially said "no" when asked whether she wanted to run for again. And as Hillary is quick to remind you, she's "very well prepared" for it. Hmmmm! "I don't see anybody that I wouldn't enjoy running against".

Clinton has been more vocal in her opposition of President Donald Trump as the midterm elections draw near.

It was a deputy communications director for Minnesota's Democratic-Farmer-Labor Party who was suspended for a week for a tweet threatening members of the GOP with "guillotines".

Philippe Reines, a longtime confidant to the former NY senator, said he doesn't see any reason why she shouldn't throw her hat in the ring again. "She's not running. I think it would be pretty damn clear if she was", another longtime confidant added.

As Clinton has become more visible in recent weeks, speculation has mounted about whether she might make another bid for the Democratic nomination. I watched this video just a few hours after publicly declaring that Hillary should give up her dream of being president and open a yarn store, and I nearly changed my mind about her presidential prospects after seeing it. "That doesn't mean people don't think the world of her. But the point of it is, it's not a real thing".

"Well, I'd like to be president", Clinton explained, to the audience's enjoyment.

The former Democratic nominee said that "there's going to be so much work to be done", after a Democrat "hopefully" wins in 2020.

"I'm not even going to think about it until we get through this November 6 election about what's going to happen after that", she added this Monday.

Philippe Reines, a Clinton aide, said it is "highly unlikely" that Clinton would run again, but that the chances are "not zero".

"It's hard for Hillary", McAuliffe said. She got three million more votes than Donald Trump did in the last presidential election.

"Look, if we're not able to rein him in, I think there will be wholesale firings, particularly in the Justice Department, perhaps including Robert Mueller", she told Swisher.

"She's going to be out helping candidates". Is it that she's run before?

Mr Biden, who launched presidential campaigns in 1988 and 2008 before dropping out of the race each time, has been touted as a possible contender again.
