A former top advisor to Bill Clinton says there's a 'good chance' Hillary Clinton will run against Donald Trump in the 2024 presidential election if the current administration loses Congress in the midterms.
Dick Morris claimed Sunday morning a Clinton-Trump rematch is likely if the Democrats don't pull the successful results in November's election, alleging the failure would cause the party to turn on President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
'There's a good chance of it,' Morris told WABC radio host John Catsimatidis before applauding the former presidential nominee'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 set up a brilliant, brilliant strategy that nobody else is able to do.'
He continued: 'What she's done — at a point at which no Democrat is willing to come out and criticize Joe Biden, but all Democrats are disappointed with him and have to realize the ultimate correctness of our accusations that he was incompetent to be president — she has set up a zero-sum gain with him.
'The worse he does, the better she does because she's positioned herself as the Democratic alternative to Biden.' +9 View gallery Dick Morris claimed there's a 'good chance' for a Clinton-Trump rematch and believes Clinton has 'set up a brilliant, brilliant strategy' by positioning herself as the opposition to the Biden-Harris Administration

That appears to be an attack on 'woke' progressive policies that have been blamed for turning many centrist Dems away from the party.
The former political advisor alleged 'there is only one person capable of that level of thinking — and that's her husband, Bill.'
Although Clinton has not yet said if she intends to enter the bid for president in 2024, she has publicly taken aim at the current administration's efforts, saying they 'mean nothing if we don't have a Congress that will get things done and we don't have a White House that we can count on to be sane and sober and stable and productive'.

'The person who staked out the turf first and owns the turf in the Democratic Party is going to be Hillary. It's a brilliant, brilliant strategy,' he explained.
His comments come just weeks after Clinton warned the Democratic Party it needs to be 'clear eyed' about what wins elections - a tacit warning that its progressive wing risks handing midterm victories to the Republican Party.
She told NBC's Willie Geist last month that Democrats needed candidates who could win in purple states if it was to have a Congress that will 'get things done.'
Her comments reflect divisions in both parties, as centrists grapple with fringes that offer ideological purity and headline generating Twitter accounts.
'I think that it is a time for some careful thinking about what wins elections, and not just in deep blue districts where a democrat and a liberal Democrat or so-called progressive Democrat is going to win,' said Clinton. +9 View gallery Morris believes President Joe Biden (right) and VP Kamala Harris (left) will lead the Democratic party into a 'disaster' in the 2022 midterms.

'We've got to be very clear eyed about what it's going to take to hold the House and the Senate in 2022. And to win the electoral college because also Republicans are doing everything they can to create an environment in which winning the Electoral College, even narrowly the way Joe Biden did will be out of reach for Democrats,' she argued in December, just weeks after the party's defeat in Virginia's gubernatorial election.
She added that she understood why politicians would want to argue for their own priorities.
