For a nation with 325 million people, US democracy is quite dynastic.
Just think of the Kennedys, the Bushes, and of course the Clintons…to name a few.
After serving as First Lady to former President Bill Clinton, Hillary made the most of her name and political fame to become a New York state senator and later garner an appointment as the US Secretary of State.
It wasn’t until she set her sights on the highest office in the land that US voters finally rejected her. With many Americans marching beneath the ‘anyone but Hillary’ banner, the 2016 presidential election went to underdog Donald Trump.
This time around, Hillary Clinton appears to have gotten the message. The former First Lady says she won’t run for US president in 2020.
However, like it or not, she vowed she’s ‘not going anywhere’.
Not the last we’ve seen of Hillary…
It’s no secret that Ms Clinton has been less of a favourite in the polls. And it looks to have got to her.
AAP reports that the news from Clinton comes during an interview posted on Monday by New York TV station, News12.
‘I’m going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe,’ she said.
‘What’s at stake in our country, the kind of things that are happening right now are deeply troubling to me.’
But that’s easy to say when you’re sitting on the sidelines.
Additionally, Ms Clinton said she had spoken with several candidates that sought to run for the Democratic presidential nomination.
She told them not to ‘take anything for granted, even though we have a long list of real problems and broken promises,’ from the Trump administration.
