A few months ago, Michael Bloomberg broke off considerations of running for President because he felt there was no path for him with so many Democratic candidates in the mix. Hillary Clinton took the same approach, dipping her toe in the water and quickly retreating when others told her there was plenty of fresh blood ready to take their turn. Fast forward to today with the top three candidates being 70+ year old Caucasians and suddenly the idea of a Clinton or Bloomberg run doesn’t seem so crazy to them.
Those are the rumors, at least, as allegedly private conversations (which can only be considered private because they were discussed in a small group before being leaked to test the waters) by both 70+ year old Caucasians indicate the same premise: They’d run if they thought they could win the nomination.
Former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has privately said that she would consider entering the Democratic primary if she saw a scenario in which she could win, The New York Times reported.
Clinton is skeptical that such a scenario exists, however, according to the newspaper.
The Times offered the report in a lengthy story about Democrats’ fears of whether the candidates they have in the 2020 race are capable of beating President Trump.
It also reported that Michael Bloomberg, the former New York City mayor who has flirted with running for president, has also said he would consider entering the race if he saw a path to victory.
I’ll go ahead and answer that question for them. At this stage in the race with even frontrunner Elizabeth Warren showing signs of weakness when faced with direct attacks from her opposition, the nomination process is wide open. We can discount the bottom 15-20, which means Warren, Joe Biden, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Kamala Harris, and Andrew Yang all have a shot. It also means none of them have been able to generate the necessary level of enthusiasm to claim it’s their election to lose.
Those who say Clinton couldn’t get it after being so badly burned by the 2016 election aren’t aware of discussions at the DNC. None of the choices currently on the table truly excite the Democratic Establishment. Sure, Warren and Sanders excite the radicals, but either of them would be the worst-case-scenario in the eyes of the Establishment which believes a socialist cannot defeat 2020. It’s a correct assumption.
But their moderate savior, Biden, has failed to take the nomination. It was handed to him initially. All he had to do was not mess up. Since then, he’s done nothing but mess up. Some are looking now to Buttigieg, but the young mayor of a mid-sized city is exactly that… a young mayor of a mid-sized city. He may have the brains but he doesn’t have the credentials. Moreover, he doesn’t have a track record of success.
Harris is about as likable as a foot cramp. Yang keeps talking about math, a subject that many in the DNC have intentionally failed since knowing math means knowing their policy proposals won’t work.
Bloomberg is the interesting choice in all of this. He’s tough on guns and the environment, two subjects near and dear to the Democratic voter’s heart. He’s also a former Republican, which gives him the ability to suspend disbelief among Republicans who aren’t happy with President Trump, which isn’t many. But most importantly, he’s extremely rich. He could drop $3 billion on the election – more than either presidential campaign spent in 2016 – and would still be one of the ten richest people in America.
But the one I’d love to see enter the race is Hillary Clinton. Why? Because she’s such an easy target as a corrupt and failed human being that the jokes would write themselves. Republicans need to stop chanting “lock her up” and start chanting, “run, Hillary, run.”
What does it say about the Democratic Party when they had 25 major candidates going into primary season but still think they need more options. What does that say about the options they already have available to them?

Yes, We Need Your Help
I hate being “that guy” who asks people to donate because I think our conservative news network is so crucial, but here I am…
When I left my cushy corporate job in 2017, I did so knowing that my family would have to make sacrifices. But I couldn’t continue to watch the nation slip into oblivion and was inspired by President Trump’s willingness to fight the good fight even at his own personal expense. What I didn’t realize then is that conservative media would be so heavily attacked, canceled, and defunded that the sacrifices would be extreme.
Many in this nation are struggling right now even though we weren’t struggling just a few years ago. I’m not alone. But I wake up every morning and operate the sites we’ve been able to build because there’s really no other choice. I refuse to be beholden to Big Tech like so many other conservative news outlets, which is why you won’t see Google ads here. With that said, it’s often challenging to pay the bills and it’s even harder to expand so we can get the America First message out to a wider audience.
The economic downturn has forced me to make a plea for help. Between cancel culture, lockdowns, and diminishing ad revenue, we need financial assistance in order to continue to spread the truth. We ask all who have the means, please donate through our Giving Fuel. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to expand our reach so the truth can get to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
We currently operate:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Uncanceled News
- Based Underground
- Five other conservative news sites
I would even be willing to entertain investments and partnerships at this stage. I’ve turned them down in the past because editorial purity is extremely important. I’ll turn them down again if anyone wants us to start supporting RINOs or avoid “taboo” topics like voter fraud, vaccines, or transgender supremacy. But I’d talk to fellow America First patriots who want to help any (or all) of our 10 news sites. Hit me up at jdrucker (at) substack (dot) com if you’re interested.
For those who have the means and just want to help keep the mission of spreading a conservative, Christian message to the nation, please consider a generous donation.
