Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton refuses to stay out of politics.
A few times this year, Clinton has already chimed in on the current 2020 Democratic candidates and defeating President Donald Trump.
Now, the results of a new report on betting odds show Clinton’s vice-presidential odds are surging.
According to the Washington Examiner, it was only a week ago that “one betting aggregator said [Clinton] was a distant 25–1 shot, and 12th on a list that put her behind an Ohio state senator.”
Now, the Examiner notes, “another betting site has the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee with a 16–1 shot and fifth in line.”
Indeed, the former secretary of state “has roared back into the public spotlight with a new Hulu feature,” the Examiner reported.
Still, US-Bookies.com data, based on betting markets offered by the United Kingdom, Europe, and elsewhere, show that Sen. Kamala Harris, once a 2020 presidential candidate, is still the top pick, at 2-1.
Odds to be Democratic vice presidential nominee:
- Kamala Harris: 2-1
- Amy Klobuchar: 3-1
- Stacey Abrams: 6-1
- Elizabeth Warren: 12-1
- Hillary Clinton: 16-1
- Pete Buttigieg: 16-1
- Cory Booker: 33-1
- Gretchen Whitmer: 25-1
- Julian Castro: 33-1
- Michael Bloomberg: 50-1
Clinton has roared back into the public spotlight in recent months.
Last month, it was reported that Clinton is launching her own podcast in the late spring.
The failed 2016 presidential candidate apparently does not yet have a title for her show, but it will be co-produced by iHeartMedia.
Clinton’s podcast aims to “share good news about problems that are actually being solved,” but it will also be launched right in the thick of the 2020 presidential election.
That doesn’t seem like a coincidence.
The announcement comes after Dick Morris, a former adviser to President Bill Clinton, predicted that billionaire Michael Bloomberg and Hillary Clinton are plotting a way for her to become the 2020 Democratic nominee even though she is not officially in the race.
“Here’s the deal that I think is going down. I think Hillary and Bloomberg have gotten together and cooked up a scheme,” Dick Morris said last week.
Back in January, Clinton said she could beat Trump if she ran against him in November.
“Yeah. I certainly feel the urge because I feel the 2016 election was a really odd time and an odd outcome,” she said.
Before that, several Democratic aides revealed that Clinton has been working behind the scenes with Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren.
Clinton and Warren have apparently developed a close political friendship that could be pivotal to deciding the Democratic presidential nomination.
Sources claimed that Clinton has kept in touch since Warren announced her decision to seek the Democratic nomination back in February.
One Democratic strategist said Clinton “loves” Warren’s campaign style and the slew of radical, far-left policy proposals she has unveiled.
Some are speculating that Clinton could be running to be Warren’s running mate in what could be an all-woman ticket in 2020.
It is almost too easy to see exactly what’s going on here.
