“Her supporters love her and we always will, but she won’t run and she shouldn’t,” said one former Clinton aide. “She’s less popular than Trump and all her negatives are still there. Her campaign was awful. She would have been an amazing president, and it was all incredibly unfair, but none of that will change in 2020.”

Democratic strategist Jim Manley, who served as a Clinton campaign surrogate in 2016, said she needs to step aside.

“With all due respect, she had her chance and it didn’t work out,” Manley said. “She ran such a lousy campaign Donald Trump is now the president of the United States. I have a lot of respect for her, but she had her chance and it didn’t work out.”
