Throughout her quarter-century in politics, Clinton has also run for president twice. The former first lady lost to former President Barack Obama in the 2008 Democratic primary, and to President Donald Trump in the 2016 general election. Clinton has been the subject of 2020 presidential speculation, but has repeatedly denied interest in running for president again.
