White House counselor Kellyanne Conway said Sunday she welcomes Hillary Clinton’s return to the national spotlight, predicting that the Democrat’s vow to join the “resistance” is likely to backfire on Democrats.

“As for Hillary, look, people are rolling their eyes and bellyaching — most of them are Democrats, by the way — ‘Why won’t she just go away?’” Ms. Conway said on “Fox & Friends.”

After largely avoiding the spotlight since her defeat in November’s presidential election, Mrs. Clinton said in an interview Tuesday that “I’m back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance.”

The former secretary of state, who lost in a historic upset to Republican Donald Trump, reportedly is planning to launch a political fundraising group called Onward Together in order to boost the anti-Trump movement.

Ms. Conway, who ran Mr. Trump’s successful campaign, said she is “getting comfortable” with having the former first lady back in the political spotlight.

“I’m kind of getting comfortable and used to it,” said Ms. Conway. “If she wants to keep herself out on the national scene, more power to her because it reminds everybody that the left just can’t move on, that they’ve got no bench.

“Where are the leaders of the party? Who are the centrist Democrats who are going to reach out to the same voters that Donald Trump was able to animate and motivate to the polls?” she said.
