“Hillary Will Run Again”

That’s the title of a recent Wall Street Journal opinion piece by Democratic Party insiders Mark Penn and Andrew Stein. It’s behind a paywall, but a summary at the Washington Examiner includes excerpts like these:

Mrs. Clinton has come unbound. She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career. …

You can expect her to run for president once again. Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing. …

Mrs. Clinton has a 75% approval rating among Democrats, an unfinished mission to be the first female president, and a personal grievance against Mr. Trump, whose supporters pilloried her with chants of ‘Lock her up!’ This must be avenged. …

She will enter through the front door, mobilizing the army of professional women behind her, leveraging her social networks, and raking in donation. She will hope to emerge as an unstoppable force to undo Mr. Trump, running on the #MeToo movement, universal health care and gun control. Proud and independent, this time she will sideline Bill and Mr. Obama, limiting their role to fundraising.
