Former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton just made a stunning announcement. She is refusing to stay out of the spotlight — she’s back.
Appearing on Ellen DeGeneres’ daytime talk show, Clinton responded “never say never” to whether she’d accept the vice-presidential spot on the eventual Democratic ticket.
At first, Clinton simply said, “Well, that’s not going to happen.” To which DeGeneres responded, in her signature dry wit, “You don’t know that’s not going to happen.”
Then Clinton told the story about how she rejected becoming Obama’s Secretary of State two times before saying yes. “So I never say never because I do believe in serving my country,” she said.
As is typical with Clinton, it is obvious that she is leaving the door cracked open for such a possibility, in spite of her claims that “it’s not going to happen.” We know how this political double-talk goes.
Whether she’s even asked to appear on the ticket may depend on who becomes the Democratic nominee. There is likely a higher chance with former Vice President Joe Biden than with Sen. Bernie Sanders.
