Hillary May Be Sitting on the Bench, but She Is Suited Up and Ready for the Coach’s Call

Hillary Rodham Clinton is running for the presidency of the United States. All she's waiting for is for one of the current members of the first string to falter and the coach to call her into the game.

It could happen today. Joe Biden is fighting both Father Time and fading finances. Elizabeth Warren's vision of something for everybody that only the rich pay for is failing to persuade the voters she needs to win. Bernie Sanders hasn't lost his mind, but his heart is failing. And Michael Bloomberg is too old, too white, and too rich. The coach's call could come at any time.

And HRC is ready.

She and her daughter, Chelsea, are touring the world touting their latest book, The Book of Gutsy Women. But the almost frenetic schedule of speeches and interviews gives the appearance of a full-blown political campaign for the presidency of the United States.

In an interview on BBC Radio 5 in England on Tuesday, the twice-failed candidate sounded like someone just biding her time:

I feel a sense of responsibility partly because you know my name was on the ballot, I got more votes, but ended up losing to the current incumbent in the White House, who I think is really undermining our democracy in very fundamental ways. And I want to retire him.

When directly asked if she was considering running in 2020, Hillary replied "I say never, never, never say never," adding "I will certainly tell you: I'm under enormous pressure from many, many, many people to think about it. But as of this moment, sitting here in this studio talking to you, that is absolutely not in my plans."

If that is so, then why the frenetic schedule? Why is she twitter-debating with the president? Why is she attacking a current Democrat contender? After all, a new book is often the launching pad for a new political campaign.
