Hillary Clinton has recently lost prominence following a string of electoral setbacks.
Obama beat Clinton in the 2008 primaries, and Trump defeated her in the 2016 general election. Throughout both of the campaigns, she had been the Democratic front-runner.
In addition to serving as New York’s senator and former first lady, Clinton also served as Barak Obama’s secretary of state.
She became the first woman to be nominated for president by a significant political party in 2016, but Donald Trump ultimately won the election.
The 74-year-old Clinton reiterated her commitment to never running for office this month.
In an interview with CBS News, Clinton reiterated her decision to not run for president again and said she would do “all” in her power to make sure “that we have a president who respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions.”
Clinton said “no, no” when asked by CBS News if she intended to run for office again.
Clinton continued to criticize the former president during the interview, bringing up issues ranging from the 2016 presidential election to the most recent FBI raid on Mar-a-Lago.
Sen. Lyndsay Graham of South Carolina, a supporter of Trump, stated on Saturday that ” if it’s just about mishandling classified information, we’ve had a standard set when it came to Hillary Clinton,” therefore Clinton should use caution when casting aspersions.
When it came to Clinton’s use of a personal email server while she was secretary of state, James Comey, who was then in charge of the FBI, said that she and her staff were “extremely careless in their handling of very sensitive highly classified information,” but at the time, he did not suggest that she be charged.
Despite the accusations made against her, some are suddenly bringing up Clinton as a potential political candidate.
Dick Morris, a longtime advisor to Bill Clinton, wrote “The Return: Trump’s Big 2024 Comeback.”
Morris stated in a recent Newsmax article:
“We are about to find out if Donald Trump ever littered or jaywalked in his entire life. He is under scrutiny for everything else with prosecutors throughout the country – all motivated by partisanship – filing all manner of lawsuits and criminal investigations against him. Could this have anything to do with his imminent announcement of his candidacy for reelection in 2024? Or with his dominance in the Republican Party primaries this year? Or with his lead over Biden in several national polls? If you answered ‘yes’ to each, you’re on the right track.”
In 1996, Morris made political history by transferring parties.
He was a Democrat up until 1996, at which point he switched to the Republican party.
Morris, 73, began assisting Bill Clinton during his campaign for governor of Arkansas in 1978 and gave him advice throughout his time in office. 1996 saw him resign amid the scandal.
A decade later, he became a vocal opponent of the Clintons, denouncing Hillary’s political aspirations in books and on television.
Morris highlighted the resurging rumors that 79-year-old Biden won’t run for reelection on Sunday morning’s “Cats Roundtable” segment of the WABC radio program hosted by John Catsimatidis.
Morris made a significant prediction concerning the 2024 presidential race during the broadcast.
Morris prophesied that the Democrats will desperately seek out a name from the past.
The self-described “secret adviser” to former President Donald Trump stated that Democrats “are planning to dump Biden,” and that Clinton would be the party’s choice if no other centrist contender arose.
“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,” according to Morris.
“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,” he said. “Otherwise we’ll have Sanders as our candidate. We’ll lose Congress by a ton. And we’ll get wiped out in the presidential race.’”

Morris contended that Clinton has already started tacking towards the center by stating that Americans don’t want open borders and criticizing Biden for accusing Republicans of embracing “semi-fascism.” The former secretary of state, however, on Friday herself likened Trump’s most recent campaign event in Ohio to a Nazi rally, NY Post reported.
