Hillary Clinton left the door very wide open today when she was asked to respond to speculation she’ll be a late entrant into the race for Democratic nomination for president.
During a Wednesday appearance on The View, co-host Abby Huntsman told Clinton her sister is “convinced” that the failed 2016 candidate will get into the 2020 race “in six months.”
“Six months?” an aghast Hillary responded, looking at her watch, seemingly indicating as though that would be too late.
Shaking her head as the other hosts asked if she was going to announce a campaign, “I would come here if I did,” Clinton responded, “I would quickly come here.”
“That’s not a no,” Huntsman noted.
“No,” Clinton said, dismissively waving her hand. “I’ve said repeatedly no,” she said amid the awkward moment.
Hillary’s tease as her 2016 foe Bernie Sanders has canceled all appearances due to heart surgery.
The AP reports:
Bernie Sanders’ campaign said Wednesday that the Democratic presidential candidate had a heart procedure for a blocked artery and was canceling events and appearances “until further notice.”
The 78-year-old Sanders was in Las Vegas when, according to a campaign statement, he experienced chest discomfort during a campaign event Tuesday and sought medical evaluation. Two stents were “successfully inserted” and that Sanders “is conversing and in good spirits,” according to the campaign.
Sanders’ wife, Jane O’Meara Sanders, was en route to Las Vegas on Wednesday and said in an email to The Associated Press that her husband was “doing really well.”
Hillary is in the midst of a book tour where she’s made appearances on CBS Sunday Morning, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and is scheduled to appear on MSNBC tonight.
