Former President Bill Clinton prompted more speculation that Hillary Clinton might run for the presidency in 2020.
“She may or may not run for anything, but I cant legally run for president again,” Clinton said, according to RealClearPolitics.
He made the statement while sitting next to wife Hillary Clinton, a former senator and secretary of state, and Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at an event at Georgetown University School of Law.
The former presidents comments came after a former adviser, Philippe Reines, said that she might run for president again.
“You know, she ran for president because she thought she would be the best president,” said Reines on Fox News. “If she still thought that now, if she thought she had the best odds of beating Donald Trump—I think she would think about it long and hard.”
Reines later said that she suspects she might be the best person to defeat Trump.
“She really likes a lot of the people running. She knows them well.

And, look, you can make fun of her all you want, but 65 million people voted for her and thats second more to anyone except Barack Obama.”
A former adviser to Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, suggested that Hillary Clinton will join the race if Joe Biden drops out.

Voters will want an alternative to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), whom he described as having left-wing policies.
“The question is are there enough moderates to beat Elizabeth Warren the leftist?” he asked. “Make no mistake. She wants it,” Morris added. “Shes planning on it. Shell do everything she can to achieve it.”
Earlier this month, Hillary Clinton sparred with Democratic candidate Tulsi Gabbard, alleging that the Hawaii congresswoman is a Russian asset.
“Im not making any predictions but I think theyve got their eye on somebody who is currently in the Democratic primary and are grooming her to be the third-party candidate,” Clinton said, referring to Gabbard, as reported by Fox News. “Shes the favorite of the Russians.
