After a series of failures in the political arena, Hillary Clinton has faded to the background lately.
Clinton was famously upset in the primaries by Barack Obama in 2008, and by Trump in the 2016 general election. She had been the Democratic front-runner throughout both contests.
Clinton has been a former first lady, a United States Senator representing New York, and was also Secretary of State under Barak Obama.
She was the first woman to win a presidential nomination by a major political party but lost to Donald Trump in electoral votes in 2016.
Clinton, 74, has repeatedly insisted she would never run again and renewed that vow again this month.
In an interview with CBS News, Clinton stated that she will do “everything” in her power to ensure “that we have a president who respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions” while also reiterating that she herself would not run for the Oval Office again.
When asked by CBS News if she planned on running for president again, Clinton replied, “no, no.”
Clinton went on in the interview to blast former President Donald Trump, airing complaints from the 2016 election to the recent FBI raid on the Trump home, Mar-a-Lago.
Clinton should be careful throwing stones, as on Saturday Trump ally South Carolina Sen. Lyndsay Graham said,” if it’s just about mishandling classified information, we’ve had a standard set when it came to Hillary Clinton.”
Regarding Clinton’s use of a private email server when she was serving as secretary of state, then-FBI Director James Comey said that Clinton and her staff were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive highly classified information,” but did not at the time recommend charging her.
Despite the allegations against Clinton, now her name is being bantered about again as a political possibility by some.
Longtime Bill Clinton adviser Dick Morris is the author of “The Return: Trump’s Big 2024 Comeback”
Morris wrote last week in Newsmax:
“We are about to find out if Donald Trump ever littered or jaywalked in his entire life. He is under scrutiny for everything else with prosecutors throughout the country – all motivated by partisanship – filing all manner of lawsuits and criminal investigations against him. Could this have anything to do with his imminent announcement of his candidacy for reelection in 2024? Or with his dominance in the Republican Party primaries this year? Or with his lead over Biden in several national polls? If you answered ‘yes’ to each, you’re on the right track.”
Morris famously switched political parties in 1996.
Prior to 1996, he was a Democrat, and since then he has been a member of the Republican party.
Morris, 73, started working for Bill Clinton during his 1978 run for governor of Arkansas and continued advising him through his presidency. He resigned amid the scandal in 1996.
A decade later, he emerged as an outspoken critic of the Clintons, railing against Hillary’s political ambitions in books and televised appearances.
Morris appeared on John Catsimatidis’ WABC radio show “Cats Roundtable” Sunday morning and discussed renewed speculation that 79-year-old Biden will not seek a second term.
During the show, Morris made a powerful prediction about the 2024 presidential election.
Morris predicted that a name from the past will be pulled out again in desperation by the Democrats.
Dems “are planning to dump Biden,” said the self-proclaimed “secret adviser” to former President Donald Trump, adding that Clinton would be the party’s nominee if no other centrist candidate emerged.
“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 opined.
“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,” he continued. “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.’”
Morris contended that Clinton has already started tacking towards the center by stating that Americans don’t want open borders and criticizing Biden for accusing Republicans of embracing “semi-fascism.” The former secretary of state, however, on Friday herself likened Trump’s most recent campaign event in Ohio to a Nazi rally, NY Post reported.
“She’s absolutely trying to pretend she’s … a centrist just like her husband was,” Morris said of the former New York senator. “And she’s going to get the nomination like her husband did in ’92 and lead the party to the center and to victory.”
He added that Clinton was “waiting for the wipeout” of Democrats in the November midterm elections “to justify her candidacy and say, ‘Only I can save you from this happening again,’” then theorized that Clinton’s “integrity problems” would cost her another defeat on the national stage against Trump, who is considering a third run for the office amid mounting legal problems.
