    Hillary Clinton could run for New York City mayor, local media report.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Clinton could challenge current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, whose term will wrap up at the end of 2017, The New York Daily News said on Friday citing an anonymous source.

    "It’d be sweet justice considering the way that de Blasio treated her," a Democrat and Clinton loyalist told the newspaper.

    Republican candidate Donald Trump won the 2016 US election in November with a total of 304 Electoral College votes against 227 electoral votes secured by his rival, former US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

    De Blasio was a campaign manager for Hillary Clinton’s first Senate campaign, however, he initially refused to endorse her presidential bid in April and skipped the official launch of Clinton’s presidential campaign. De Blasio finally endorsed Clinton at the end of October.

      jas, so it's looking like the demise of the clinton gang is linked to the possible demise of of the dnc, unless, as you say, they can attract fresh faces and talent. Thanks for the local insight. :)

      michael, That's only my local insight. :) But I don't see how a viable political party can keep chasing the past forever and not suffer consequences.

      They really want an ill, 70 year old Clinton in a key city like New York? She owes them. They don't owe her anything.

      jas, and yet that is what many, in various countries do seem to do. The electorate then seems to be oblivious, almost cataleptic in their behaviour to elections or scandals etc. Nothing seems to change...often. :)

      She has nothing else going on. Some donors will support her but it's definitely a step down from what she has been running for. But before too many people talk of her running for mayor, everyone must remember that there are indictments out there that can be handed down to her for her crimes ....... Collusion with the DNC is illegal as a candidate, having a private server as a federal employee and sending confidential govt information is against the law, also taking political bribes through the Clinton foundation for political favors can put the wicked witch behind bars for a long time. So what Trump needs to do is to get a task force and special prosecutor after Hillary when he gets in and investigate her corrupt past then indict then convict then jail. So running for mayor is the least of her concerns.

      Nobody in the clinton crime family should ever be allowed to run for public office anywhere in the USA.

      Ha bloody ha!!! -- The only running she'll be doing this year, is for time-- but she's out of that too as hopefully she'll be locked up in a maximum security facility ...

      copius, Their desperate last acts against him, will actually favour him... you watch, the American people are still going to be so thankful for Big "Bad" Trump, they'll kiss his feet ....

      michael, We're talking about criminals here-- people responsible for war crimes and hideous atrocities against humankind-- not capable of serving, only serving they must do-- is mega jail time... never again able to hurt anyone.

      michael, who would notice the difference? As the saying goes, you cannot drive someone crazy when they are already there. She is so wacky that she eats grasshoppers. The proof that she eats grasshoppers is that she is non compos mantis.

      Bada Boom. Cymbal crash.

      She is going to jail but it will be a nice jail with no deplorables. Serial killers maybe but no deplorables.

      choticastile, agreed, they just 'serve' their own interests. I don't know if jail is enough though for their heinous actions.

      it is all fun and games for them, always getting richer, always getting away with murder. For us it is a slap in the face, a brutal slap in the face, a skull shattering slap in the face, but, hey, do any of us really think our vote matters? It is going to take a bloody, terrible fight, to get this mess we call politics straightened out. What a shame that we leave this mess to our children to die over. I am not laughing! The Clintons, the Bush's, and just about every politician ever, should be locked up in a rubber room, with nothing but their inner self to console them. That would be some punishment, I think. Nope, it doesn't work that way today, today, the more damage they do the more rewards they get, what a shame, on us.
