‘He kept popping up all the time. I love what I do…’
(Kaylee McGhee, Liberty Headlines) In a recent interview with The Guardian, Hillary Clinton compared herself to former Prime Minister Winston Churchill when asked if it’d be best for the country if she withdrew from public life.
Clinton admitted that she s a “polarizing figure,” but so was Churchill, she said.
“I’m sure they said that about Churchill between the wars, didn’t they?” she said. “I’m just saying people said that, but he was right about Hitler, and a lot of people in England were wrong.
“And Churchill was a pain. He kept popping up all the time. I love what I do and I care about a lot of things, so I’m very interested in what people are doing to try to figure stuff out and solve problems. So it’s not really work to me. No, it doesn’t feel like work.”
Clinton said she has no intentions of leaving the public sphere, contributing to speculation that the former presidential candidate is ramping up for a rematch in 2020.
Clinton has appeared at high-profile events recently, for the Clinton Foundation and at Oxford University.
The New York Post also reported that five times in the last month alone, Clinton told her supporters that her super PAC was working against President Trump.
And as there is no clear Democratic front runner to challenge Trump, Clinton’s re-run is possible.
Clinton made her way back to the spotlight by vocally opposing Trump’s zero tolerance immigration policy, calling it a “moral and humanitarian crisis.”
“Every one of us who’s ever been a parent or a grandparent, an aunt, a big sister, any one of us who’s ever held a child in our arms, every human being with a sense of compassion and decency, should be outraged,” she said at an awards lunchfor the Women’s Forum of New York last month.
Clinton told the Guardian she’s at peace with her 2016 defeat, but that she’s not going anywhere.
“I would blame me,” she said. “Yes. I would. It feels like a duty. It feels like patriotism, and it feels necessary. I’m not going anywhere.”
