Americans thought they were finally rid of the Clintons.
Pundits believed Hillary’s defeat was the family’s final political act.
But Chelsea Clinton has started dropping hints that have Americans concerned.
The liberal press has started to glorify Chelsea Clinton.
Her tweets have been praised in the media.
And political observers believe her increased social media presence is the first step in a future run for office.
The Hill reports:
“When rumors started swirling after the election that Chelsea Clinton was considering her own foray into politics, it was met with eye rolls even from staunch supporters of the family.
“Think we can let the dust settle a bit before we start talking about another Clinton race?” one former adviser to Hillary Clinton said after the New York Post reported in November that the former first daughter was being “groomed” to run for Congress, possibly replacing 79-year-old congresswoman Nita Lowey (D-N.Y.) “It’s exhausting.”
But that skepticism is starting to fade.
Last month, a separate report in the New York Daily News said that Clinton could potentially run for Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s (D-N.Y.) seat, should the senator decide to run for president in 2020.
Clinton has only stoked the rumors further, particularly on Twitter, where she has repeatedly gone after President Trump and his associates since Inauguration Day. On Sunday, she also took the opportunity to rail against Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) for racially charged comments about immigrant babies.”
Americans were sick of the Clintons.
Fatigue with the family drama and scandals were a contributing factor to Hillary’s defeat.
And there are Democrats throwing cold water on the idea of a Clinton restoration.
The Hill also reports:
“Yet many caution that the time might not be right for another Clinton to enter the political scene.
Longtime aides, donors and supporters of the Clintons are still reeling from President Trump’s victory. With feelings still so raw, the timing might not be right for Chelsea Clinton to make the jump.
“Even if it’s a year or two or three from now, I still don’t think the timing would be right,” said one former aide who worked on Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and has spoken to the Clintons since. “I know that’s not fair to her, but nothing feels right about it. It feels too forced.”
Democratic strategist Jamal Simmons said while the Clintons are “always thinking about campaigns and elections,” he said the Democratic Party needed to spend time looking for new leaders “and investing in them.”
“It’s time to look forward,” Simmons said.”
America is sick of the Clintons.
Will Chelsea take the hint and pass on a career in politics?
Or will she press forward with a run for office?
