Hillary Clinton reportedly slated to deliver remarks at NY Dem. Party convention

In a move certain to spark new speculation about her future political plans, Hillary Clinton is reportedly planning to step into the spotlight to deliver remarks at the New York State Democratic Party Convention next week, as CNBC reports.

Insiders familiar with the situation told the outlet that Clinton will take center stage during a session of the annual gathering that is slated to happen at the Sheraton Hotel in the Big Apple’s Times Square.

According to one unnamed source who spoke to CNBC, Clinton is “beloved by the mainstream members of the Democratic Party and her popularity is likely higher than that of President Biden,” and the anonymous insider added, “[i] t’s good for her because it keeps her relevant, and her appearance is likely meant to galvanize the party and the audience.”

The scuttlebutt about the former secretary of State’s possible speaking engagement had not yet been affirmed through official channels, however, as Chris Melnyczuk, chief of staff to the state Democratic Party’s chairperson simply stated that the group had “reached out to a number of people to speak and, you know, we’re waiting back on confirmation from a number of people. So there are a few things in the works, as Fox News noted.

Indeed, Melnyczuk demurred when asked directly whether Clinton was in the mix of potential speakers, saying, “We’ve reached out to a number of folks, we’re not going to say who we’ve reached out to.”

Should Clinton appears at the event and deliver a speech, she will undoubtedly provide further grist for the rumor mill that has her pondering a political comeback that some on the left seem to believe could be the solution to the party’s current self-inflicted disasters, otherwise known as President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.

Just last month, Democrat insiders Doug Schoen and Andrew Stein authored a much-discussed op-ed piece for the Wall Street Journal in which they enthusiastically floated the idea of Clinton stepping back into the electoral fray in order to save the party from impending doom at the ballot box.

“She is already in an advantageous position to become the 2024 Democratic nominee,” the duo declared, adding, “[s]he is an experienced national figure who is younger than Mr. Biden and can offer a different approach from the disorganized and unpopular one the party is currently taking.”

Whether Clinton is truly contemplating yet another run for the White House, or she is simply in search of the limelight as a means to reclaim some measure of relevance within the party hierarchy, only time will tell.
