A former senior advisor to Bill Clinton said there is a ‘good chance’ Hillary Clinton will run against Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election if the current administration loses Congress in the midterm elections.
Dick Morris claimed Sunday morning that a Clinton-Trump rematch is likely if Democrats do not pull out the successful results in the November elections, claiming that failure would lead to the party turning against President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
“There’s a good chance of that,” Morris said. wabc Radio host John Katsimatidis before praising the former presidential candidate’s campaign strategy, which could see her face off against Donald Trump again after Trump beat her to the White House in 2016.
“Hillary has put together a great, brilliant strategy that no one else can do.”
He continued, “What you did — at a point where no Democrat wants to come out and criticize Joe Biden, but all Democrats are disappointed with him and have to see the ultimate validity of our accusations that he is incompetent to be president — you set up a zero-sum gain with him.”
The worse the better because she has presented herself as a Democratic alternative to Biden.
Dick Morris has claimed that there is a “good chance” of a Clinton-Trump rematch and believes Clinton has “crafted a great, brilliant strategy” by positioning herself to oppose the Biden-Harris administration.
Morris also alleged that Clinton, 74, portrayed herself as an opponent of the alt-right and warned her party to be aware of candidates running in what she refers to as “purple circles.”
This appears to be an attack on the “awakened” progressive politics that have been blamed for alienating many centrist Democrats from the party.
The former political advisor claimedOnly one person is capable of this level of thinking – and that is her husband, Bill.
Although Clinton has yet to say whether she intends to enter a bid to run for president in 2024, she has publicly taken aim at the current administration’s efforts, saying it means nothing if we don’t have a Congress that will get things done and we don’t. “We don’t have a White House that we can depend on to be sane and sober and stable and productive.”
Morris claimed that Clinton is well-positioned to be the candidate of change for the Democratic Party who can point to Biden’s failings, noting that “the left wing has taken over the party and led us to disaster in the midterms of 2022.”

Hillary will be the one to bet on the grass first and own the district in the Democratic Party. It’s a great, great strategy.
His comments come just weeks after Clinton warned the Democratic Party that it should be “clear” about what wins the election – an implicit warning that his progressive wing risks handing midterm victories to the GOP.
I told NBCWillie Guest said last month that Democrats needed candidates who could win the purple states if there was a Congress that would “get things done.”
Her comments reflect divisions in both parties, with centrists grappling with parties offering ideological purity and headlines generating Twitter accounts.
For Democrats, that means the so-called team of progressives — including Representatives like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ilhan Omar.
“I think it’s time for some careful thinking about what is going to win the election, and not just in the deep blue areas where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat or so-called Progressive Democrat will win,” Clinton said.
Morris believes that President Joe Biden (R) and Vice President Kamala Harris (L) will lead the Democratic Party to “disaster” in the midterms of 2022. He believes this is beneficial to the Clinton campaign, which says: “The worse it is, the better because it has provided itself as a Democratic alternative to Biden.
“We have to be very clear about what it will take to hold the House and Senate in 2022. And to win the Electoral College because Republicans are also doing everything they can to create an environment in which to win the Electoral College, even in the narrow way that Joe Biden did would be out of reach for Democrats.” ,” she argued in December, just weeks after the party was defeated in the Virginia gubernatorial election.
She added that she understood why politicians wanted to debate their own priorities.
“But at the end of the day, nothing gets done if you don’t have a Democratic majority in the House, in the Senate, and our majority comes from people who won in more difficult districts and majorities in the United States. The Senate comes from people who can win not only in the blue states and they make those wins…but they can win in more purple states.
“So this is going to be a very difficult period, not just for the Democratic Party, but for the country.”
“She was absolutely right and no one else has the guts to say that,” Morris said, referring to her comment, on Sunday.
He claimed that other Democrats had to maintain their alliance with the far left because “this is their potential base”.

Hillary could say ‘Go to hell, I don’t care about you guys. I’ll be against Chirst, I’ll be running against you. “So, she’s the only one between now and the end of the midterm elections who’s prepared to say what the truth is,” Morris said.
He added, “I set ground, not on ideological issues, but on pragmatism.”
Morris’s remarks mirror those he made last week in a Wall Street Journal An editorial raises the issue of Clinton’s 2024 run.
The authors cited poor Biden and Harris poll numbers, claiming they could open doors for the former secretary of state.
“She’s already in a prime position to become the 2024 Democratic nominee,” Democratic political consultant Doug Schoen and former New York City Council President Andrew Stein wrote.
“She is a national figure with younger experience than Mr. Biden and can offer a different approach than the disorganized and unpopular approach the party is currently taking.”
However, others argue that Clinton is not “forward-thinking” enough to secure a bid to host the 2024 race.
“Democrats have a rich history of bringing old-school politicians out of the stables in order to come back and slaughter them,” said Adam Green, co-founder of the Progressive Campaign’s Change Committee. hill Sunday.

Although Clinton has not officially stated if she plans to run for president in 2024, a source close to the former first lady and her husband claims that the couple wants to return to prominence in the Democratic Party.
“It’s a constant itch that will never go away,” said the insider. Politico. They know how to come back slowly. The Clintons want to reset the board in their favor and then move the pieces.
Trump also has not announced whether he plans to run in 2024, but has said publicly that he is considering it.
“I think a lot of people are going to be very happy, frankly, with the decision, and they’ll probably announce it after the midterms,” he said in a November interview.
