Steve Bannon said that Hillary Clinton will once again put herself forward as the Democratic presidential nominee, according to his interview on “Sunday Morning Futures” on Fox News this past Sunday.
The former aide to President Donald Trump and former chairman of Breitbart News argued that Clinton is “waiting for her shot to come in and say, ‘I’m going to save the Democratic party,'” and that “Michael Bloomberg is a liberal/moderate Republican, he’s not a Democrat.”
“This whole thing is going to come down to Super Tuesday,” added Bannon.
“I don’t think anybody can win it right now,” said Bannon.
“Bloomberg’s going to drop a money ‘nuclear weapon’ on Super Tuesday, and Hillary Clinton is waiting in the wings.”

Bannon said that he was basing most of his assessment on the Howard Stern interview that Clinton conducted at the start of the month — it tells him “more than anything that she’s coming in.”
This followed an appearance on the Graham Norton show in the U.K., in which Clinton said she was “deluged” with messages telling her to run.
“I’d have to make up my mind really quickly,” Clinton said, “because it’s moving very fast.”
Topping the polls. Clinton’s potential bid has been reinforced by a recent poll of Democratic voters.
The online Harris Poll survey conducted by Harvard University had Clinton lead with 21 percent of the vote, with Joe Biden just behind on 20 percent, followed by Sanders at 12 percent, Warren at 9 percent, and Bloomberg at 7 percent.
Without Clinton, Biden took a solid lead of 29 percent, 13 points ahead of Sanders in second place. It seems that Clinton
We don’t doubt that Bannon’s assessment is correct.
The noises from the Clinton camp coupled with her surge in the recent poll make us believe she’s going to make her way into the race, sooner or later.
What’s astounding, however, is the sheer arrogance of the woman.
Not only did she lose to Obama in the 2008 primaries, but she was soundly beaten by President Trump in 2016.
To stand again, after being rejected by both the Democratic Party and the nation as a whole, shows her true character. She is the sorest of losers, convinced that she deserves to be president — it was supposed to be “her turn,” after all.
She may have the support of some Democratic voters, but another run would reek of entitlement, and would therefore go down like a cup of cold sick with the swing voters she would need to convince over to her side to prevent another embarrassing defeat. We wouldn’t place a bet on President Hillary Clinton any time soon.
