In an interview with daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, Hillary Clinton refused to rule out the possibility that she could be added to the Democrat ticket as a vice-presidential candidate.
“Never say never,” Clinton, who will never be in the White House again, said.
The former First Lady conceded that she “probably won’t be asked,” but her refusal to dismiss the notion indicates she, like Jim Carrey in ‘Dumb and Dumber,’ is saying there’s a chance.
“I never say never, because I believe in serving my country,” she told DeGeneres before adding, “but it’s not going to happen.”
It certainly doesn’t help that she has thoroughly eviscerated Bernie Sanders, the current frontrunner in the Democrat party, over the past few weeks.
In an upcoming documentary about her career, Clinton unloads on Bernie claiming “nobody likes him” and attacks his supporters as misogynists.

Breaking the Glass Ceiling
Clinton is always angling to make claims of having broken the glass ceiling. Being elected vice president would certainly fit the bill.
She recently became the first woman in history to be appointed chancellor of Queen’s University Belfast in Northern Ireland.
Of course, the ultimate glass ceiling – the White House – eluded her in spectacularly embarrassing fashion during the last presidential election cycle.
The idea of pursuing the runner-up prize has been percolating of late. An op-ed column in The Hill suggested Hillary could be negotiating with the Joe Biden campaign or others to be named to the ticket.
“Clinton and/or her team could be negotiating with former Vice President Joe Biden, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg or the last candidate standing to join the ticket as vice president,” the column reads.
“She would add the gravitas, delegates and, eventually, millions of votes needed to get them over the finish line on Nov. 5,” they predicted. “I am assured that Clinton is on every shortlist for that position.”
This horrid woman will never go away.

Watch Your Back Joe
Teaming up with Biden might hold a very specific appeal to Hillary. They could carry out Barack Obama’s third term agenda as she had hoped to do in 2016.
Or, you know … it could be her way back in.
At a town hall event in Iowa last week, Biden suggested his pick for vice president had to be “capable of being president because I’m an old guy.”

Yikes. I’d imagine he’d age a lot faster if you had Hillary lurking in the shadows constantly.
