The scene is Hillary with Bill in their Chappaqua, N.Y.,  study sitting by the fireplace enjoying her afternoon glass of chardonnay. Chelsea’s in the room with them.

HILLARY

You know Bill, I’ve had such a successful first three years, bringing back our economy from the edge of the abyss that Obama left us in, I think I’ll try for a run again.

BILL

Sure dear.

Bill looks at Chelsea for a little help.

CHELSEA

Come on, Mom.  You’re kidding, right?

HILLARY

Whadda you mean?

She takes a sip from her stemmed glass and cackles a bit.

BILL

You didn’t win the last election.  What makes you think you can win this time?

HILLARY

I won the popular vote and the people have told me I’m the real president.

BILL

Doesn’t matter what they say, you lost dear.  We aren’t in the White House. When’s the last time you saw your therapist?

HILLARY

Shut up Bill!  I don’t need therapy.  That clown in the White House does!

CHELSEA

Mom!  Stop it!  You’ll wake Charlotte. Relax now and let’s talk about our book sales and your granddaughter.

HILLARY

Of course, dear.  We all love Lotte.  She’s a doll.  We’ll set up a nursery in the White House so you can work for me next term. You do seem to have a lot of time on your hands these days since The Foundation closed.

Chelsea rolled her eyes and looked over at her father for help.

BILL

Trump won!  Get over it!  You can’t beat the man.  He’s improved the economy and it’s the economy, stupid!

HILLARY

How dare you call me stupid!

BILL

It’s a saying, Hillary.  Remember when I beat George Bush Senior?  That phrase was coined by Jimmy Carville.                          .

HILLARY

Oh…yeah.  I remember him.  Ol’ Jimbo. Maybe I can get him in my cabinet next term.

Chelsea and Bill shared frustrated glances.

BILL

Sure dear.  Whatever you want.  Why not go take your afternoon bath now?  You seem a little off today.

HILLARY

Whatever Bill.   I’ll think about my next campaign slogan.  “I’m With Her” really worked out well last time, but I should come up with a fresh one.  How ’bout “I’m Sticking with Her” with a dollar sign with an arrow going up^ through it like the economy did?

BILL

That’s a winner. You nailed it! How do you come up with these ideas?

HILLARY

It’s a gift.  Wonder if I should keep that same guy on my ticket or get a woman this time? Women power is in right now with the #metoo movement. A two-woman ticket would really break some more glass in the ceiling.

BILL

I wouldn’t put emphasis on that movement especially with what they’ve put me through. It could conjure up a lot of old memories that we’d have to explain away like bimbo eruption and Epstein.  Not to mention your pictures with Weinstein that have surfaced.

HILLARY

Oh poo.  You always find the negative, Bill.

Hillary wobbled out of the study down the hall toward her guest bath. Both Bill and Chelsea shaking their heads in unison whispering she’ll never accept her loss.
