Twice failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton (D) might be gearing up to run for the nation’s highest office one more time in 2024 after her latest criticism of President Joe Biden (D), according to a long-time Clinton adviser.
Political strategist Dick Morris made the remarks during an interview with John Catsimatidis on his WABC 770 AM radio show that aired on Sunday, the New York Post reported.
“I see more and more signs that Hillary’s going to run,” Morris said, noting that Clinton has been echoing what many Americans believe, that they do not support “open borders.”
The remarks come as the Biden administration’s policies on the southern border have led to national security and humanitarian catastrophe as there have been more than 2.3 million illegal border crossings over the last 11 months, an all-time record, and there have been more than 4 million total since Biden was inaugurated.
“These are all signals that she is going to be the moderate candidate for president,” Morris said. “She’s going to say after the election, ‘See, the left cost us the House and the Senate. If we stay with a left-wing candidate in 2024, we’re going to lose the White House. I’m the only one who will tack to the center and give us a chance at victory.’”
Morris said that Ms. Clinton was using the playbook that her husband, former President Bill Clinton (D), used when he ran for office during his first term, a strategy that Morris said he designed for the former president.
“Hillary is just dusting off Bill’s playbook that I wrote for him and applying it herself this year,” Morris said.
The Post reported that Morris predicted last week that Democrats would push Biden out in favor of Clinton to stave off potentially ending up with an even more far-left candidate than Biden, which he said would cause the party to get blown out during the election.
“Once Biden pulls out, the polling will show that the Democrats are leaning toward some crazy radical like Gavin Newson, Bernie Sanders. Maybe even AOC herself,” Morris said. “That’s going to drive the Democratic Party leaders to go to Hillary and say, ‘Hey look. Please run again. 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,” he predicted. “And we’ll get wiped out in the presidential race.’”
