It is unclear how long Mark Penn can continue to trade on his very, very former status as a pollster and campaign strategist for Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Hillary Clinton appears to be back at it, as reports claim she is bracing for a third presidential run.
It could really happen.
The generation of Democrats who have been waiting to take over the party from the Clintons will be fuming that she is back and stealing their show.
Mrs Clinton was left reeling after defeat by Donald Trump in 2016 when the Republican captured 304 areas compared to the Democrats' 227. "She won't let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House", Penn wrote together with Andrew Stein, who served as Manhattan Borough president.
"I was recently asked if Crooked Hillary Clinton is going to run in 2020?"
"Mrs. Clinton knows both Mr. Clinton and Mr. Obama declared they weren't running, until they ran".
'Dear God, please, yes, ' Conway tweeted. "She will not allow this humiliating loss at the hands of an amateur to end the story of her career", Penn and Stein explain.
A Clinton candidacy would wreak havoc on the 2020 Democratic primary - totally upending what is expected to be a free-for-all involving numerous party's fresh-faced liberal stars (including Kamala Harris of California and Cory Booker of New Jersey).
"She's more likely to win Powerball", Philippe Reines, her former adviser, told The Hill. Especially not if it involves Clinton attempting to co-opt the message of the new, über-leftist progressive movement.
