Like the proverbial “bad penny” that keeps showing up, a former campaign adviser to President Bill Clinton is reporting that Hillary wants to enter the 2020 race for the Democratic nomination.
During a recent interview, Dick Morris said he thinks HRC is hoping for a set of circumstances where she could enter the race. “My feeling is that she wants to do it — she feels that God put her on the Earth to do it,” Morris said. “But she’s hesitant because she realizes the timing is bad.”
Morris suggested that if former Vice President Joe Biden were to drop out of the primary, there would be an opening for Clinton as a moderate candidate. He said she would receive momentum from moderates who believe Elizabeth Warren is too progressive to win a general election. Morris added that he feels that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg would be a very good candidate in the general election, but would never be able to get there and survive the Democrat primaries.
Morris, who resigned as Bill Clinton’s adviser in 1996 after a tabloid reported that he had a relationship with a call girl and later supported Republican candidates and conservatives overseas, explained that Hillary Clinton would take former Vice President Joe Biden’s spot as the moderate candidate for those looking for an alternative to “leftist” Elizabeth Warren. “Make no mistake. She wants it,” he added. “She’s planning on it. She’ll do everything she can to achieve it.”
Morris also noted that Clinton will use the fact that she got more votes than President Donald Trump in 2016 to convince voters of her ability to win the election. His remarks come after two unnamed sources close to Clinton told The Washington Post last week that the former 2016 Democratic nominee is still not ruling out entering the 2020 presidential race as a Democrat.
The former first lady recently joked about a rematch against Trump. In a Tweet referring to the possibilities of entering the race, she said, “Obviously I can beat him again.”
All I can say is, “good luck with that.”
