Former political adviser to Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, predicted that desperation would force Democrats to replace President Joe Biden with Hillary Clinton as the 2024 presidential candidate.
Morris made the prediction during an appearance on John Catsimatidis’ WABC-AM show “Cats Roundtable,” despite Clinton saying she would not run in 2024.
Morris is now convinced Democrats are planning “to dump Biden.”
“Once Biden pulls out, the polling will show that the Democrats are leaning toward some crazy radical like [California Gov.] Gavin Newson or [Vermont Sen.] Bernie Sanders or maybe even [New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez] herself,” said Morris, whose radio show airs on WABC.
“I think that’s going to drive the Democratic Party leaders to go to … Hillary and say, ‘Hey look. Please run again,” Morris said.
“We need you to save us from the crazy left. Otherwise, we’ll have Sanders as our candidate. We’ll lose Congress by a ton. And we’ll get wiped out in the presidential race. Please run,'” he added.
Morris claimed Hillary is now positioning herself for what’s to come.
The former political adviser said Clinton is “waiting for the wipeout” of Democrats in the November midterms “to justify her candidacy and say, ‘Only I can save you from this happening again.'”
“She’s absolutely trying to pretend that she’s a moderate, she’s a centrist just like her husband was, and that she’s going to get the nomination, like her husband did in ’92, and lead the party to the center and to victory,” Morris said.
Morris also made similar arguments in a column in The Western Journal.
“Party stalwarts, fearful of a Trump return to office, will beg Clinton to intercede and run for president just as she did in 2016 to stop Sanders,” he wrote. “She’ll accede to their entreaties and run in the primaries as a moderate alternative.
“But she’ll lose most of the primaries because the party’s base has moved so far to the left. However, the establishment will step in to rescue her by awarding her a disproportionate share of the appointed super delegates.”
“In November 2024, however, she will lose badly” to former President Donald Trump, he predicted.
After Clinton invoked the Nazis’ rise to power in her recent attack on Trump supporters, she signaled she is maybe thinking about a potential rematch of the 2016 presidential race.
“I remember as a young student, you know, trying to figure out, how people get basically drawn in by Hitler. How did that happen? I’d watch newsreels and I’d see this guy standing up there ranting and raving, and people shouting and raising their arms. I thought, ‘What’s happened to these people?'” Clinton said Friday.
“You saw the rally in Ohio the other night, Trump is there ranting and raving for more than an hour, and you have these rows of young men with their arms raised. I thought, ‘What is going on?'” she said.
“It seems like perpetual-failed-candidate Hillary Clinton’s basket of deplorables has run stale, not unlike herself,” Budowich said.
“It’s pathetic, it’s divisive, and it is further cementing her legacy of cringe.”
