Hillary Clinton still won’t say whether she’s considered a third presidential run in 2020—or if she has ruled it out.

That’s what Newsmax concluded Thursday morning after encountering the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee following the funeral of the late Rep. John Dingell, D.-Mich.

As Clinton was leaving Holy Trinity Church in Georgetown when the service for Dingell concluded, Newsmax asked her if she was planning to run in 2020 or at least thinking about another presidential race.

“Come on,” the former secretary of state replied, “Let’s be thinking about John Dingell!”

Hillary Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton, delivered one of the eulogies for Dingell, who died last week at age 92. 

At one point in his remarks, the former President made what many felt was a nasty reference to President Donald Trump. Recalling how he asked Dingell about serving a record 59 years and six months in Congress, Clinton told the mourners, “John told me that it wasn’t impressive simply holding an office because ‘any fool can sit in a chair and take up space.’”

Obviously getting a hint, the mourners at Holy Trinity broke into prolonged applause.

Along with the former president and Mrs. Clinton, numerous old hands from the Clinton White House were present for Dingell’s funeral. Among them were former Clinton White House Chief of Staff John Podesta and his brother, controversial campaign consultant Tony Podesta.
