Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich revealed Wednesday that he believes failed 2016 Democrat presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will once again run for high office come 2024.
He made the bold prediction while speaking on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” about current President Joe Biden’s continued insistence that he’ll run in 2024.
Asked during an ABC News interview earlier that evening about whether he plans to run for reelection, the president said “yes,” with the caveat that he remains healthy.
“Yes, but look, I’m a great respecter of fate. Fate has intervened in my life many many times. If I’m in the health I’m in now — from a good health. And, in fact, I would run again,” he said.
He added that he’d be even more inclined to run for reelection were former President Donald Trump to join the race as well.
Gingrich wasn’t convinced. Speaking with fill-in-host Raymond Arroyo, he theorized that Biden was just saying what he had to, lest he be forced to admit that his administration has been a catastrophic failure.
“Well, in all honesty, what choice does he have? You can’t go out there and say, ‘Look, I am doing so badly and my administration is so stupid, I think I’ll quit three years from now?” the former House speaker said.
“I mean, he’s already in many ways deeply weakened, and Joe Manchin weakened him a little more last week. The economy is weakening him, the COVID is weakening him, the border is weakening him. You’ll go down the list for him to not pretend that he’s eager, he’s excited, he wants to keep doing things. I think he’s in a box. He has no real choice.”
Come 2024, however, the choice of running for reelection would mean certain defeat, and not just for the president, but for his vice president as well, according to Gingrich.
“He’s already weaker than Jimmy Carter was at this stage, and Carter went down as the worst Electoral College defeat of any incumbent president in modern history. … I fully expect Biden to not run again. I think the Democratic Party would be in a state of shock if he did. I think Kamala Harris is weaker than Biden,” he said.
Plus, members of the Democrat Party base reportedly would also prefer that someone else run:

44% want someone else
36% want Biden

And so who will run then if not Biden or Harris?
“So the latest rumor I heard was that Hillary’s going to run, and I think that would say a lot about the chaos of America if Hillary Clinton reemerged one more time,” the former House speaker predicted.
It’s a “rumor” that’s made it into the headlines of major media outlets.
“Hillary 2024? Given the competition, she may be the Dems’ best hope,” the headline of an op-ed published in The Hill last week reads.
“She’s 74 years old, which is like being bathed in the fountain of youth compared to Biden. And she’s still stunned — five years later — that she actually lost to Donald Trump. In fact, she sounds no different than Trump in constantly complaining about all the reasons she lost and that, well, the election was stolen by Trump and the Russians anyway,” the piece by Fox News contributor Joe Concha reads.
Meanwhile on NewsNation Now, First TV host Bill O’Reilly claimed during an interview last week that Clinton personally “wants the nomination.”
“She knows the Biden administration is falling apart, which is why you’re seeing her surface right now. So it could be a replay. But voters make up their own mind,” he said.
Clinton didn’t just reemerge in the spotlight. She publicly read from the victory speech she’d written for the 2016 presidential election.
It turns out that in the speech, she’d stressed that her victory would be of vital importance to the nation because of her gender.
“I’ve met little boys and girls who didn’t understand why a woman has never been president before. This is a victory for all Americans. Men and women. Boys and girls. Because as our country has proven once again, when there are no ceilings, the sky’s the limit,” the speech reads.
Listen to her reciting it below, and note how emotional she becomes:
It seems clear from her recitation that she still deeply still wants to be America’s first woman president.
But on the other hand, she’s made it clear she expects Trump to run for reelection in 2024, and so it remains to be seen whether she has it to risk being humiliated by him once again.
“If I were a betting person right now, I’d say Trump is gonna run again. I mean, he seems to be setting himself up to do that and if he’s not held accountable, then he gets to do it again,” she said earlier this month on NBC.
If both run again, and she loses once more, it’s not clear her battered ego would survive …
