Ex-Bill Clinton Adviser Predicts Hillary Will Run in 2020 If Biden Drops Out: She Thinks 'God Put Her on Earth' to Be President

In discussing a possible Hillary Clinton 2020 presidential campaign on Sunday, ex-Bill Clinton adviser Dick Morris said that the former secretary of state wants to enter the race because she believes "God put her on the earth" to become president.

Morris weighed in on whether "the ghost of Hillary Clinton" will enter the election during an interview with radio host John Catsimatidis. "My feeling is that she wants to," he explained. "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."

Morris went on to explain some factors deterring Clinton from a 2020 run, including her fear that the "#MeToo movement will turn on her."

"In the whole issue of sexual harassment, the focus has shifted from the perpetrator, the offender, to the victim," he explained. "Now we're increasingly looking at the women who were victimized and the agony they went through.

"When your focus is on the predator, that's Bill Clinton's problem and isn't directly Hillary's responsibility. But when you look at the victim and you say, 'what made her life impossible?' That's Hillary Clinton's responsibility," Morris continued. "When she had private investigators digging up dirt on the women that her husband had victimized to keep them silent."

When asked for a definitive answer on whether he thinks Clinton will launch a presidential bid, Morris responded: "She's hoping for a set of circumstances where she could."

"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. At that point, all the Democrats are doing to say, 'Oh my God, are we going to nominate Elizabeth Warren...We need a moderate to come out'. And Hillary will dust off her credentials and say, 'I'm a moderate. I was that when my husband was president and I'll be that now.'"

Morris also noted that Clinton will use the fact that she got more votes than President Donald Trump in 2016 to convince voters of her ability to win the election.

His remarks come after two unnamed sources close to Clinton told The Washington Post last week that the former 2016 Democratic nominee is still not ruling out entering the 2020 presidential race as a Democrat. The New York Times on Tuesday also reported that Clinton has indicated in private to those close to her that she would consider a 2020 bid if she believes she could win against Trump. However, according to the newspaper, Clinton is skeptical that would be the case.
