Defeated Clinton considers launching liberal television show to lay the groundwork for ANOTHER White House run
Hillary Clinton is considering another run for president – and is mulling the idea of launching a television talk show to soften the ground for 2020.
Clinton would be 73 years old if she were to challenge President Donald Trump – again – and win the White House the next time around.
Launching a TV program now would make her America's second-oldest female news or talk show host on the small screen, after only Joy Behar of 'The View.'
Author Ed Klein wrote Wednesday on his blog that according to a Clinton insider, the former secretary of state is open to the idea.
Hillary Clinton is considering the creation of a TV show to position herself for a third presidential run, sources tell author Ed Klein
Clinton got plenty of on-air experience during the 2016 campaign, but has never hosted a broadcast program. She is seen during an appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show in May, 2016, during her run for president
'She thinks being the host of a popular TV show would energize the Democratic Party base and her tens of millions of fans,' the unnamed source said, according to Klein.
'It's a way to make a comeback and position herself for another run at the White House starting in a year or so.'
Clinton, Klein writes, recently told a group of friends gathered at her Washington, D.C. home: 'I'll be back' – and delivered the line in an Arnold Schwarzenegger 'Terminator' accent as she raised a glass of wine.
A planned comeback as a presidential candidate for the third time would preclude the idea of running for mayor of New York City.
It would also take more lucrative opportunities off the table, including corporate boards and university chancellorships.
But the Clintons are among the nation's richest Democratic politicians, reaping hundreds of millions of dollars in speaking fees since Bill Clinton left the White House in 2001.
The defeated Democrat sat stone-faced last Friday as Donald Trump was sworn in as president, and wants another bite at the apple
Among Clinton's barriers to a 2020 run that a TV show could allay include public misgivings about her health; last September she had to be dragged into her van after collapsing
Keeping up with the daily grind of a TV show would also allay fears among Democrats that her health is too frail to survive the rigors of the presidency.
Klein's source said Hillary has 'been talking very seriously' about a star turn on television.
'As a TV host, she’d discuss the issues of the day from a progressive point of view, have top guests, interview world leaders and progressive thinkers.'
Hillary, in this scenario, would control everything about the show to make sure nothing unexpected could derail her future ambitions.
'She's convinced she'd get fabulous ratings in a political climate where there's so much anger in Democratic circles over Donald Trump's election,' the insider said.
It's unclear where a Hillary Clinton show would air, or when.
But the source declared to Klein that Clinton is 'utterly determined not to fade into the background. She intends to stay in the limelight and keep fighting the good fight.'
'She knows Obama is going to be out there fighting too. But frankly, she doesn't think he's a great leader or a great fighter, which leaves an opening for her to be the acknowledged leader-in-exile of her party.'

President Trump today is expected to order the construction of his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexican border and take other actions on immigration, a main cornerstone of his presidential campaign.
Trump is planning a visit to the Department of Homeland Security, where he will roll out executive actions on immigration.
Staying true to form, Trump took to Twitter Tuesday night, and posted, “Big day planned on NATIONAL SECURITY tomorrow. Among many other things, we will build the wall!”
Trump's push for a border wall started with his campaign announcement back in June 2015.
"I would build a Great Wall, and nobody builds walls better than me, believe me, and I'll build them very inexpensively. I will build a great, great wall on our southern border and I will have Mexico pay for that wall, mark my words," Trump said at the time.
His wall announcement a rally cry for both his supporters and opponents. His supporters saw a candidate speaking plainly about border security, while his opponents called the plan divisive.
The New York Times reported that Wednesday's order will be signed the same day the Mexican foreign minister, Luis Videgaray, arrives in Washington prior to his country’s president’s trip at the end of the month.
Trump also expected to move forward with plans to curb funding of sanctuary cities that don't arrest or detain immigrants living in the U.S. illegally, which could cost individual jurisdictions millions of dollars.
A source told The Wall Street Journal that Trump, later this week, may order the suspension of entries to the U.S. from Iraq, Iran, Syria, Yemen, Somalia, Sudan and Libya.
The order bans those who engaged in bigotry, honor killings, violence against women and persecuted other religions from entering the country.
Other executive actions expected Wednesday include bolstering border patrol agents by 5,000 and ending what Republicans have argued is a catch-and-release system at the border.
A source familiar with the plan told Fox News that Trump will call from a victims' advocacy office for victims of crimes by illegal immigrants and increased overall transparency.
Currently, some immigrants caught crossing the border illegally are given notices to report back to immigration officials at a later date.
Trump's insistence that Mexico would pay for the wall was among his most popular proposals on the campaign trail, sparking enthusiastic cheers at his raucous rallies. Mexico has repeatedly said it will not pay for any border wall and Trump has not provided specific details about the project.
Earlier this month, Trump said the building project would initially be paid for with a congressionally approved spending bill and Mexico will eventually reimburse the U.S., though he has not specified how he would guarantee payments.
The reported that the low-ball project estimate is $10 billion. The Government Accountability Office reportedly said it may cost $6.5 million per mile for a single-layer of fencing.
Sean Spicer, the White House press secretary, said Tuesday that Trump’s priority is focusing on those “who pose a threat to people in our country.”

As you're reading what this airhead is doing remember when it comes to elections she knows more than you.
She once said this about Barry.
Gwyneth Paltrow is at it again. After raving about the wonders of vaginal steaming, her lifestyle blog Goop is now promoting an ancient Chinese method of inserting jade eggs into a woman’s vagina.
A post on Goop claims the jade egg has a slew of benefits such as helping to "cultivate sexual energy” and “balance the cycle.”
Some health experts aren’t pleased with Paltrow’s recommendation, but it’s not the first time she’s promoted an out-of-the-box medical advice.
Not even close.
In the past, Paltrow’s blog has claimed underwire bras could cause breast cancer. The American Cancer Society disproved that myth.
The blog has also suggested peeing in the shower by squatting down can strengthen the pelvic floor, yawning correctly is key to releasing stress (yes, you can be yawning incorrectly, according to Gwyn), and that a $200 breakfast smoothie can help get your day started off right. (Until you realize you just spent $200 on a smoothie.)
The actress has also promoted a beauty treatment that involves getting stung by bees and a flu treatment that includes sitting in an Infrared sauna while you’re sick.
Paltrow’s blog has also suggested that chemical-based sunscreens are terrible for your health (that was disproven by a 2011 study) and that a vaginal steam “balances female hormone level.”
Doctors don’t agree with Gwyn about the benefits of the V-steam, either.
Naughty Gossip Editor-in-Chief Rob Shuter said the star is quickly becoming better-known for her wild treatment recommendations than for her acting.
“It has become her brand. We have forgotten that she is an Oscar-winning actress,” Shuter said. “No movie she makes can ever get as much attention as the silly advice she is giving.”

Emanuel to Trump: Focus on Jobs, Schools, Not Inaugural Attendance
This coming from ‘dead fish’. The Mayor of a population which dies more from bullets than natural causes.
President Trump vs Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel
January 24, 2017
Mayor Rahm Emanuel slammed President Donald Trump Monday for debating the crowd size at Friday’s inauguration, urging the Republican to instead focus on jobs and education.
"You didn’t get elected to debate the crowd size at your inaugural," Emanuel said after a ribbon-cutting at an Uptown domestic violence shelter.
"He got elected to make sure the people have a job, the economy continues to grow, people have a security (did he say security) as it relates to kids' education, etc.," he added. "It wasn’t about your crowd size. It was about their lives and their jobs."
The mayor advised Trump to "create a relationship between the desk in the Oval Office and the issues at the kitchen table." He noted that Chicagoans who attended Saturday's Women's March were talking about jobs, education, health care and security, not the size of Friday's inaugural crowd.
Well, there you have it!
Just concerned citizens.
