Alexandra DeSanctis of National Review and Greg Corombos of Radio America enjoy watching liberals freak out over the possibility of an independent presidential bid by former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, who is much more closely aligned with Democrats than Republicans. A Notre Dame graduate, Alexandra also shares her insights into the presidential campaign of South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg and why his message could resonate with Midwest voters. And they roll their eyes as CNN reporter Jeff Zeleny says the Mueller indictments have Hillary Clinton once again thinking about running in 2020.

    Hillary’s “will she/won’t she?” is like having herpes. She keeps flaring up.

    Its the least interesting “will she/won’t she” plot ever. She will. In a large field she may end up being everyone’s 2nd or 3rd choice – that was enough to get Trump through the early primaries. Just by sheer force of will (or entitlement) she may make a deep run. But I really see no advantage to her rematch, she lost 2 presidential campaigns in the same manor. 

    I think the last 3rd party candidate to win a state was George Wallace in 1968. Ross Perot absolutely elected Bill Clinton, as “popular” as Bill was he won 2 presidential elections without ever getting 50% of the vote. (43% in 1992 and 49% in 1996) Maybe we should start putting popular in quotes when applied to Bill Clinton, as he was far more popular with the press than the electorate.
