Hillary Clinton is running for president … in 2020?

During a campaign stop in South Carolina on Wednesday afternoon, Clinton fielded a question from Calvin Wright, the director of a local poverty alleviation agency on how she would help boost the middle class.

“I hope that at the end of my two terms as president, I will have overseen an even bigger peacetime expansion of the economy than my husband did,” Clinton said, “and he had the biggest peacetime expansion in our history.”

If Clinton wants to look back at a two-term legacy, she’ll have to run again in 2020—not to mention win the general election in 2016. But consider Clinton’s remarks on Wednesday an early announcement: She plans to be a two-term president.

Clinton will propose in South Carolina on Wednesday a plan to provide tax credits to businesses that hire apprentices. On Thursday, she travels to Nevada.
