Former Clinton Advisor: ‘Good Chance’ Hillary Will Run in 2024
'Hillary has set up a brilliant, brilliant strategy that nobody else is able to do'
A former advisor to Bill Clinton said he believes there is a “good chance” Hillary Clinton will run against Donald Trump in 2024 if Joe Biden loses Congress in the midterms.
Dick Morris’s claims echo Clinton’s frequent hints she may run against Trump again, and in some cases declaring, “I can beat him again.”
Morris said a rematch between Clinton and Trump could be on the cards if Democrats fail to pull successful results in the November election, arguing that such a failure would see the party turn on both Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
Speaking to WABC radio host John Catsimatidis, Morris said there’s “a good chance of it,” referring to the possible presidential rematch.
“Hillary has set up a brilliant, brilliant strategy that nobody else is able to do,” Morris declared.
“What she’s done — at a point at which no Democrat is willing to come out and criticize Joe Biden, but all Democrats are disappointed with him and have to realize the ultimate correctness of our accusations that he was incompetent to be president — she has set up a zero-sum gain with him,” he added.
“The worse he does, the better she does because she’s positioned herself as the Democratic alternative to Biden,” Morris continued.
“The person who staked out the turf first and owns the turf in the Democratic Party is going to be Hillary. It’s a brilliant, brilliant strategy,” he explained.
Morris’s remarks come amid Clinton’s recent warnings that progressive Democrats are risking losing the midterms to the Republican Party.
Last month, Clinton told NBC’s Willie Geist that Democrats need candidates who could win in purple states if it was to have a Congress that will “get things done.”
“We’ve got to be very clear-eyed about what it’s going to take to hold the House and the Senate in 2022. And to win the electoral college because also Republicans are doing everything they can to create an environment in which winning the Electoral College, even narrowly the way Joe Biden did will be out of reach for Democrats,” Clinton said in December.
“But at the end of the day, nothing is going to get done if you don’t have a Democratic majority in the House, in the Senate, and our majority comes from people who win in much more difficult districts and our majority in the Senate comes from people who can win in not just blue states and hold those wins ... but can win in more purpleish states,” she said.
“So this is going to be a very intense period, not just for the Democratic Party, but for the country," Clinton added.
Morris agreed with Clinton’s comments saying, “she was absolutely right, and nobody else has the guts to say that.”
“Hillary can say, “go to hell, I don’t care about you guys. I’m going to be the anti-Christ, I’m going to run against you.” Therefore, she’s the only one between now and the end of the midterm elections who’s prepared to say what the truth is,” Morris said.
“She staked out a ground, not on ideological issues, but on pragmatism.”
Last week, two prominent Democrats also said Clinton is the party’s “best option” to control the White House.
As Neon Nettle reported:
Democratic consultant and pollster Douglas Schoen and former New York City Council president, Manhattan borough president, and state assemblyman Andrew Stein pushed the idea of putting Clinton forward at the Democrats’ nominee for the presidential election in an opinion piece.
“If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option,” Schoen and Stein opine in the Wall Street Journal.
“A perfect storm in the Democratic Party is making a once-unfathomable scenario plausible: a political comeback for Hillary Clinton in 2024,” the duo wrote.
Some critics believe Clinton’s frequent media appearances signify she is positioning herself for another run at the White House.
Clinton recently said Americans would not “recognize our country” if Trump wins in 2024, which some have interpreted as “presidential talk.”
“I think that could be the end of our democracy,” she said.
“Not to be too pointed about it, but I want people to understand that this is a make-or-break point.”
