“If Hillary Clinton ran for office again, I would do an ankle dive at the door and not allow her to do it because I love her too much,” Palmieri said at The Wrap’s Power Women Breakfast in Washington when asked what she would recommend if Clinton were to run again.

She was most recently asked about a potential future run in March, telling New York's News 12 TV channel, "I'm not running, but I'm going to keep on working and speaking and standing up for what I believe." Asked if she would run for any other public office in the future, she said "I don't think so."

Palmieri said Thursday that Clinton's 2016 campaign “set out to prove that she could to the job the same way it has always been done, which is the same way a man has done it.”

“We were jamming her into a suit that wasn’t made for her, trying to prove she could do the job the same way as a man could do it,” Palmieri added. “When everyone tells you there’s something wrong with your voice, with how you dress, don’t expect to be able to please these people, you’re never going to give them the right answer.”

Rather than being the first female president, Palmieri said, Clinton’s historical legacy will be “the woman who showed us it was all broken.”
