On New Years Eve, veteran jouranlist Todd S. Purdum authored an essay for Politico magazine titled “The death of Clintonism.” That report of Clintonism’s death may have been greatly exaggerated.
According to Newsmax:
Barely two months after Hillary Clinton lost the presidency to Donald Trump, she is being urged by major Democratic donors and leaders to make a bid for New York City’s mayor and challenge incumbent Bill de Blasio….
“She’s talking about it,” a former city Democratic elected official admitted to Newsmax over the weekend, saying the idea has not been dismissed by the former first lady’s inner circle.
He and other sources say Clinton is being pushed to run by Democrats dissatisfied over de Blasio’s mayoralty.
“If she ran, she’d win,” another source with deep ties to the Democratic and media establishment said.
Veteran New York Democratic consultant Hank Sheinkopf told Newsmax that Clinton “would be a terrific candidate for mayor.”
“She is wildly popular among New Yorkers — so much so that were she to file, de Blasio would have to file his retirement papers on the same day.”
