For those who’ve had their fill of hearing Hillary Clinton’s name mentioned every presidential election cycle, political consultant Dick Morris has some bad news.
According to the man whose claim to fame was being an advisor to former President Bill Clinton, Democrats are “planning to dump” President Biden and turn to Hillary Clinton to run for a third time in 2024. What’s more, Morris says 74-year-old Hillary’s supposed third White House bid will be the charm resulting in her finally breaking the proverbial glass ceiling.
The good news here is that since his time in the White House, Morris has had a history of getting it wrong. But that didn’t stop him from suggesting during an appearance Sunday morning on John Catsimatidis’ WABC radio show “Cats Roundtable” that the party may turn to Hillary to avoid having a radical left-wing candidate on the ticket.
“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, according to the New York Post.
As scary as the concept may be, U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., would turn 35, the constitutionally required minimum age to be president, in time to qualify.
“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 opined. “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.’”
For her part, Clinton has repeatedly denied any talk about another run, having done so again earlier this month when asked by “CBS Evening News” anchor Norah O’Donnell.
“No — no,” Clinton replied. “But I’m gonna do everything I can to make sure that we have a president who respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions.”
But Morris is feeling a different vibe.
“She’s absolutely trying to pretend she’s … a centrist just like her husband was,” Morris said on Sunday. “And she’s going to get the nomination like her husband did in ’92 and lead the party to the center and to victory.”
Interestingly, Morris is predicting midterm disaster for Democrats, saying that Hillary is “waiting for the wipeout” in November “to justify her candidacy and say, ‘Only I can save you from this happening again.’”’
Suffice it to say, the political class was not impressed with the latest prognostications from Morris… here’s a quick sampling of responses from Twitter:
