Hillary Clinton might run for the only office she stands a chance of winning. Per the Daily Caller’s Katy Frates:
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is “talking about” running for New York City mayor, Newsmax reports.
It has only been 57 days since President-elect Donald Trump defeated Clinton. During the election slog, Clinton, 69, collapsed getting into a Secret Service van, had multiple coughing fits during speeches and seemed to have trouble walking up steps at a rally in Lake Worth, Fla.
“If she ran, she’d win,” a Newsmax source said.
She was a New York senator from 2001 to 2009. During that time, her popularity peaked at 60 percent in 2001 and ping-ponged from as low as 47 percent in December 2002 to 57 percent in 2005 and then back down to 48 percent in May 2008 when she conceded the Democratic nomination to then-Sen. Barack Obama.
New York Mayor DeBlasio is a long time Clinton ally, but dragged his feet on endorsing the salty former secretary of state. He’s wildly unpopular with the sort of New York liberals and moderates who loved Michael Bloomberg’s petty tyranny. If Hillary decides to run, he might as well just resign.
