Earlier this week, we asked you to imagine a world where Hillary Clinton had defeated Donald Trump as president — a new website devoted to just that fantasy paints a lovely portrait of what life in a Clinton presidency might look like. Now we want you to imagine another scenario: Clinton running for mayor of New York City, President Donald Trump’s hometown. A juicy rumor about the possibility caromed around the political world in early January and was just to delicious to ignore.
Now, more fuel is being thrown on that fire as the early signs of a grassroots movement is beginning to take shape. Someone has been posting “Hillary for Mayor” signs all around New York City. They’ve been spotted in subway stations and on storefront doors. Again, it’s just too delicious to overlook.

It’s not clear who is behind the campaign-like signage, but should the former U.S. senator and secretary of state, some wheels would already be in motion for her to hit the ground running as a candidate. A “Hillary for Mayor” Twitter feed has been set up as well (follow it here.)
New York City has never had a woman mayor, so should Clinton decide to jump into the race, there is a glass ceiling waiting to be shattered. Polling suggests she would easily defeat her former campaign manager and current New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in a primary race, according to Mediaite. And polls have indicated that she would be a heavy favorite against whichever Republican she would end up facing in the general election. Think about it, Hillary.
