Former Clinton Adviser Says There’s ‘Good Chance’ of Hillary-Trump Rematch in 2024 [Video]

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:


  • Former President Bill Clinton’s top adviser Dick Morris says there’s a ‘good chance’ Hillary Clinton will run for president in 2024.
  • Morris said it will happen if the Democrats lose the House in the 2022 midterm elections.
  • Clinton has called out the Biden administration’s alleged shortcomings in a recent interview.

Dick Morris, former President Bill Clinton’s top adviser, said Sunday there is a “good chance” Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will have a rematch in 2024.

During an appearance on John Catsimatidis’s radio showCats Roundtable, Morris suggested the rematch will happen if Democrats lose control of Congress in the 2022 midterm elections. If that’s the case, President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris would have a hard time getting support from Congress.

“Hillary has set up a brilliant strategy that nobody else is able to do,” Morris said. “Knowing the people around her, I believe there is only one person capable of that level of thinking — and that’s her husband, Bill.”

“The second the election is over … every Democrat is going to take a shot at Biden and Harris. They will be DOA,” Morris added.

Clinton earlier warned her fellow Democrats about the dangers of shifting too far left. In an interview with MSNBC, she suggested her party should do “some careful thinking” about winning elections “not just in deep-blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat, or so-called progressive Democrat, is going to win.”

Morris said Clinton’s rhetoric has helped create a “zero-sum game” where the worse Biden does, the better she does, “because she’s positioned herself as the Democratic alternative to Biden.”

“The person who staked out the turf first and owns the turf in the Democratic Party is going to be Hillary. It’s a brilliant, brilliant strategy​,” Morris said.​

Last week, Wall Street Journal published an op-ed by Democratic political consultant Doug Schoen and former Manhattan Borough President Andrew Stein outlining the case for another Clinton run. It includes a similar argument that poor poll numbers for Biden and Harris could create an opening for Clinton.

“She is an experienced national figure who is younger than Mr. Biden and can offer a different approach from the disorganized and unpopular one the party is currently taking,” the op-ed said.

A source reportedly told Politico last week that Hillary and Bill Clinton have a “perpetual itch” to return to prominence in the Democratic party “that will never go away” and that the pair sees a chance to return to the spotlight by leveraging the intraparty fighting between moderates and progressives.

“They know how to slowly re-enter,” the insider told Politico. “The Clintons want to reset the board in their favor and then move the pieces.”
