Hillary Clinton appears to have taken her decision at last. She has announced that she will not be a contender in the 2020 Presidential race. However, she will continue to observe the goings-on from the sidelines and speak out about politics. As she said to a news channel - "I'm not running, but I'm going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe." She was the 2016 Democratic presidential nominee and lost out to Donald Trump.

CNN reports that Hillary Clinton's comments have buried speculations of her return to the Democrat field in 2020.

It seems there were rumors doing the rounds of another presidential run for her but that is no longer likely. She had all along been wavering between contesting and not contesting and has finally taken her decision.

A Democrat in Oval Office in 2021

In an interview in October, Hillary Clinton had said that she nursed hopes of seeing a Democrat in the Oval Office in January of 2021. She expected there would be plenty of work that would have to be done. At that time, she had not ruled herself out and admitted in the interview that she was equipped to handle the tough job. Her experience as a Senator and the stint of being a diplomat in the State Department would help her cause. However, CNN says she now wants to quit the arena.

She is worried about the happenings around her and the polarization that is totally new in today’s way of life.

CNN adds that she mentioned about many women who have entered the field. They are women who will make a difference. Some of them have already impressed with their work and will prove their worth. Hillary Clinton agrees that there is a lot of progress on various aspects but much more needs to be done on issues like “women's rights, on gay rights, on making sure that every person has the same chance to have their dignity and their identity respected."

She will not run for 2020

According to The Hill, the former secretary of state Hillary Clinton insists that she will not be a candidate in the 2020 Presidential race. However, that does not mean that she will bid adieu to politics.

Rather, she will be engaged in various activities and speak out on what needs to be brought into focus. She will be active in the elections that already have contenders who have announced their candidacy.

Some of them are women Democrats like Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, and Amy Klobucher. For a start, Hillary Clinton has advised all candidates to treat everything on merit and not take "anything for granted." She is determined to help the Democrats return to power in the White House. She had contested the 2016 elections and lost to Donald Trump but this time there is more than one woman in the running. Who knows, 2020 could see one of them become the 46th president of the US.
