Easter week, Hillary Clinton wrote an op-ed for The Washington Post, where she said:
Our election was corrupted, our democracy assaulted, our sovereignty and security violated. This is the definitive conclusion of special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s report. It documents a serious crime against the American people...
It’s critical to remind the American people that Democrats are in the solutions business and can walk and chew gum at the same time.
We have to get this right.Last week, she also participated in a Time magazine event, the Time 100 Summit. At the event, according to Newsweek, she commented on the growing socialist trend in America:
“We’ve gotten to a perverted point where a lot of the opposition to capitalism is rooted in the way it is operating now, to the disservice of the community at large, of employees and suppliers,” she said.Then this showed up on YouTube on Saturday (It's well done).
“You see this great discontent spreading across the West, and China will have their time as well," she added. "Because if people feel that wealth is concentrated in fewer and fewer hands, what can they do other than rise up? And they can rise up in the streets of Paris or with the Brexit vote or in our country because they don’t have a lot of other options to express themselves in an economic system that has gotten way out of balance.”...
“I hope this isn’t a cartoon debate,” she said. “I hope we make the argument that young people who don’t see capitalism helping them, and don’t see their future in this kind of economy, will understand we’ve been living to some extent with a distortion and we need to get back to inclusive prosperity and don’t get bottlenecked.”
Capitalism, said Clinton, has been growing more “predatory” and “free of any kind of check and balance” since the 1960s and 1970s. But, she continued, a “well-regulated capitalist system is good in the long run. I'd like to see us move away from the shareholder mania...and see it accelerate to a stakeholder capitalism.”
And Rachel Maddow just tweeted this:

It looks to me like Hillary is either seeding the ground for a presidential run or at least testing to see what kind of traction she can get.
Hillary has died, Hillary has risen?
