Former Clinton advisor suggests Hillary may be preparing for a 2024 presidential run

Dick Morris, who is a political strategist and a long-time adviser to former President Bill Clinton, has dropped a strong hint that Hillary Clinton is prepping herself for a 2024 presidential run. 

Morris said that Hillary would position herself as a “moderate” should she mount a challenge for the White House.

“I see more and more signs that Hillary’s going to run,” Morris said during a Sunday interview with John Catsimatidis.

“These are all signals that she is going to be the moderate candidate for president. She’s going to say after the election, ‘See, the left cost us the House and the Senate. If we stay with a left-wing candidate in 2024, we’re going to lose the White House. I’m the only one who will tack to the center and give us a chance at victory​,​’​” Morris said.

Morris noted that the strategy is the same one he “designed for Bill Clinton in 1992,” adding that “Hillary is just dusting off Bill’s playbook that I wrote for him and applying it herself this year.”

During an interview with MSNBC last month, Clinton called out Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis for flying migrants to Martha’s Vineyard, proceeding to say that he was guilty of human trafficking.

“So many other Americans — I happen to believe still the majority of Americans — are good-hearted and generous and when people end up on their doorstep in need, they’re going to respond. They’ll feed them and house them and the kids in the AP Spanish class will be let out of high school so they can go and translate. That’s the kind of American spirit that we try to celebrate at the Clinton Global Initiative,” Clinton said, before adding “nobody wants open borders who has any idea of how government and countries work.”

Morris said that, should Biden decide not to run again, this could potentially clear a path to the White House for a far-left candidate.

“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.

​“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,’” ​Morris concluded.
