Yeah. I think I blocked out 2008. Or got Devossed. We'll go with that.
3rd time's the charm you mean. Don't forget she wanted to run in 2008 but couldn't beat Obama to get the nomination.
The big advantage I see is that HRC would annoy the hell out of President TV. Every time she speaks, she can get in a "3 million more votes" kind of thing. The disadvantage is that (a) the media will call her a sore loser and (b) it'll just solidify his base more what with the baked in ArgleBargleClintonRage. I'm not entirely sure that's worth the risk.
We need SOMEONE on a national level though. Someone we can point to as a "voice" of the party. Not necessarily as a 2020 candidate, but just as someone who can act as a spokesperson. It's not Sanders. It's not Clinton. It's not Warren (as much as I like her). I'm not sure WHO it is at this point.
