Remember when Hillary Clinton was a lock to be President of the United States? Her die hard supporters that she was more electable than Barack Obama that she would be unbeatable when she got her shot to run for President of the United States.
Then Donald Trump and WikiLeaks happened (and the RUSSIANS!) and she ended 2016 in flames. Most will remember her as one of the worst candidates of all time.
But just like the little engine that could, she’s not giving up, she might run for mayor. Of New-York, of course.
Clinton is reportedly being pressed by New York Democrats to dive back into politics and give Mayor Bill de Blasio some competition in the mayoral race later this year. Most of this speculation is allegedly fueled by Clinton’s Democratic pals, still upset over de Blasio’s initial refusal to endorse her presidential bid during the campaign. He eventually did, but some Clinton supporters felt it was too late.

From the New York Daily News:
Hillary Clinton left open the possibility of running for mayor of New York City this year in a private conversation with a top Democrat, a well-placed source told the Daily News.
Clinton, who is being pressed by many New York Dems to get back into the game by running for mayor, did not rule out challenging current City Hall occupant Mayor de Blasio in that conversation, the source said.
What About Political Opponents located in NYC?
One person who should care about Hillary Clinton running for Mayor of NYC is Donald Trump.
Imagine the fun:
City building inspectors start to show up daily at Trump Tower, where they find a wobbly beam here, a missing smoke detector there, outdated wiring all over the place. City health inspectors fan out through Trump’s hotels, writing citations for clogged drains in the kitchens and expired milk in the minibars.
The potholes near his properties go unfilled. Those neighborhoods are the last to be plowed. There’s a problem with the flow of water to his Bronx golf course, whose greens are suddenly brown. And the Russian Consulate keeps experiencing power failures. It’s the darnedest thing. Clinton vows to look into it, just as soon as she returns from the Hamptons.
