A former adviser to President Bill Clinton said that Hillary Clinton, the former Secretary of State, think she has a divine right to be president.
Dick Morris, who has since been a detractor of the Clintons was speaking to John Catsimatidis on his radio show when he made the charge.
“My feeling is that she wants to,” he said, referring to the idea that Clinton could enter the 2020 presidential campaign.
“She feels entitled to do it. She feels compelled to do it. She feels that God put her on the Earth to do it. But she’s hesitant because she realizes the timing is bad.”
“She’s got to wait until Biden drops out because he’s obviously next in line for it, and if he goes away, there’s an opening for her,” he said.
“The question is are there enough moderates to beat Elizabeth Warren the leftist?” Morris said to the host, who campaigned as a Republican for New York City mayor.
“Make no mistake she wants it,” Morris said of Clinton. “She’s planning on it. She’ll do everything she can to achieve it.”
Rumors have been rampant that Clinton sees an opening as former Vice President Joe Biden has begun to falter.
And many people have been speculating that she is just waiting for the opportunity to get into the campaign and face President Donald Trump in a rematch.
And Clinton herself has made it apparent that she itching to get involved, even threatening the president not to tempt her to campaign against him.
Hillary Clinton Considering Getting In Presidential Race As Dems Panic, Report.
Democrats are looking at their field of candidates to take on President Donald Trump and are coming to the conclusion that they are in trouble.
When a half-dozen Democratic donors gathered at the Whitby Hotel in Manhattan last week, the dinner began with a discussion of which presidential candidates the contributors liked.
But as conversations among influential Democrats often go these days, the meeting quickly evolved into a discussion of who was not in the race — but could be lured in.
Would Hillary Clinton get in, the contributors wondered, and how about Michael R. Bloomberg, the former New York mayor?
One person even mused whether Michelle Obama would consider a late entry, according to two people who attended the event, which was hosted by the progressive group American Bridge.
“Since the last debate, just anecdotally, I’ve had five or six people ask me: ‘Is there anybody else?’” Leah Daughtry, a Democrat who has run two conventions, said.
“There’s more anxiety than ever,” journalist and wife of Senator Sherrod Brown of Ohio, Connie Schultz said to The Times.
“We’re both getting the calls. I’ve been surprised by some who’ve called me,” she said of the people calling them to get in the primary.
Former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu said that there was real concerns over Biden’s lack of fundraising and management of funds.
“Mrs. Clinton and Mr. Bloomberg have both told people privately in recent weeks that if they thought they could win, they would consider entering the primary — but that they were skeptical there would be an opening, according to Democrats who have spoken with them,” The Times said.
“Former Secretary of State John F. Kerry, who associates say has wondered aloud about whether he should have run and has found it hard to watch Mr. Biden’s missteps, has also been urged to get in.
“But he still thinks the former vice president, who was once his longtime Senate colleague, is the party’s best nominee.
“Another Obama administration official who weighed a campaign at the start of the year, former Attorney General Eric Holder, is considering a last-minute entry but has conceded it may be too late, according to a Democrat familiar with his thinking,” it said.
Those who have spoken to Hillary Clinton say that she has the same concerns about the Party’s front runners but that she would only get into the race if Biden was severely weakened.
But it is hard to ignore the numerous media appearances and Twitter wars she has been involved in for the past month.
If she were to enter the primary campaign, after there have been debates, it would be interesting to see what the Democrat voters think.
