Skip to comments.'Close to Zero' Chance Hillary Runs Again for President

Is there still a possibility that if Democratic presidential nominee Sen. Barack Obama loses this years election, Sen. Hillary Clinton, D-N.Y., would make another run for the White House? According to Clinton, the chances are close-to-zero.
Clinton appeared on Fox & Friends Oct. 14 and told co-host Gretchen Carlson her chances of being the next Senate Majority Leader or a Supreme Court Justice nominee were zero. But Clinton dropped a bigger bombshell when she all but ruled out another presidential bid.
Probably close to zero, Clinton said. You know, I am someone who theres an old saying, bloom where youre planted, and Ive always loved that. When you walk into, you know, our house in Chappaqua, theres a painted wooden sign which says, Bloom where youre planted. I love being in the Senate.

Yea, just like there was ZERO chance she would run for president if she was re-elected to the Senate... she’s played this line before folks... don’t count on it.
When has she ever done that?
oh pleeeeze! All you’d have to do is wrap that potential “carrot” around a string and drag it in front of those two swine.....
That’s political speak for “unless the situation changes and I am needed by my party”.
To paraphrase Richard Nixon: “You won’t have Hillary Clinton to kick around again.”
This is code language to Hillary supporters telling them it’s OK to vote for McCain/Palin.
Hillary has every intention of running in 2012. She and Bubba have nothing else to live for.
Close to zero is not zero.
Are you saying you actually believe her? How old are you?
“Less than zero chance” of me believing THAT.
I’m not understanding why anyone in their right mind would consider her for the supreme court. She has never been a distinguished or particularly special lawyer... after all the fuss over Harriet Myers, why would anyone even think Hillary is Supreme Court material. Bizarre.
We’ve heard her say that before... why believe her now?
Hillary is a lot of things, but she’s nobody’s fool. There’s no way she would admit right now that she plans to run again.
It is just political cover so when her behind the scenes efforts to sabotage BO’s campaign in the coming weeks she has proof she had no dog in the fight.
She is a Clinton after all.
Even thistles bloom.
And they’re specifically mentioned as a curse from God.
So, the news isn’t ALL bad, these days!
