Is Clinton going to save the day (or at least the 2020 election) for the dems?
 
Daily Mail - New poll shows Hillary Clinton in first place among Democratic candidates days after former secretary of state refused to rule out last-minute entry into presidential race

Quote:

Hillary Clinton would be leading the race for the Democratic nomination for president if she declared her candidacy, according to a new poll.

...

Last week, Clinton refused to completely rule out a late entry into the field of candidates.

...
It seems like she has not given up hope yet, and so neither have I.

I thought we were out of silly season. I’m certainly not giving the writer the benefit of a click. I wish I was an editor so I could fire any writer that wrote garbage like that. The same goes for speculating on Oprah or Michelle Obama.

CNN back in March:
Quote:

"I'm not running, but I'm going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe," the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee told CNN affiliate News 12 Westchester.

"I want to be sure that people understand I'm going to keep speaking out. I'm not going anywhere," Clinton said.
I'd put more trust in that than the Daily Fail.

It's not just the writer that's stoking the sad delusions of a washed-up politician. The Harris Poll decided to include her in their poll.

Unannounced presidential hopefuls are running out of time:
Quote:

Here’s the list of deadlines through the end of the year, with one caveat: In a handful of states, the political parties set their own filing deadlines, and those dates may not be included in this list.

November
Alabama: Nov. 8

Arkansas: Nov. 11

New Hampshire: Nov. 15

California: Nov. 26

Florida: Nov. 30*

*This is the deadline for state parties to submit their candidate lists to the secretary of state. The deadline for candidates to file with the party is up to party officials.

December
Tennessee: Dec. 3

Oklahoma: Dec. 4

Arizona: Dec. 9

Colorado: Dec. 9

Idaho: Dec. 11

Louisiana: Dec. 11

Virginia: Dec. 12

Michigan: Dec. 13

Vermont: Dec. 16

Ohio: Dec. 18

Missouri: Dec. 24

North Carolina: Dec. 27

One more detail: Because Iowa holds caucuses, not a primary with a standardized ballot, it has no filing deadline.

The Moderator Speaks
 
Ditka, you raised this same sort of thing a year or so ago and it went on for pages.

I don't believe this was a serious effort at discussion but rather gamesmanship on your part.

Do it again and it'll be time for a warning.

Edited to Add:

After further discussion in the mod loop - and a review of earlier, similar threads started by HD - I am issuing a warning for trolling to HurricaneDitka.
