Former Aide: It's Possible Hillary Will Join 2020 Race

A former aide to Hillary Clinton said the chances of her running for president again are slim, but she shouldn't be counted out to join the race.

"It's somewhere between highly unlikely and zero, but it's not zero," said 
Philippe Reines, who worked with Clinton while she was a senator and later when she served as secretary of state, during an interview with Politico.

Reines also wondered why Clinton's name is not being tossed around as a potential Democratic candidate for 2020, given her history as a public figure and the support she's received in past elections.

"It's curious why Hillary Clinton's name isn't in the mix — either conversationally or in formal polling — as a 2020 candidate," he said. "She's younger than Donald Trump by a year. She's younger than Joe Biden by four years. Is it that she's run before? This would be Bernie Sanders' second time, and Biden's third time. Is it lack of support? She had 65 million people vote for her."

Clinton, 70, has kept her name in the news since her loss to President Donald Trump in the 2016 election, appearing at public events, staying active on Twitter, and embarking on a book tour. She and husband Bill will go on a 13-city speaking tour in large venues beginning after the upcoming midterm elections.

Still, it's unclear whether Clinton will toss her hat into the ring again. Her post-first lady life includes eight years as a senator, four years as secretary of state, and two failed presidential bids.
