Hillary Clinton appears to be plotting against Joe Biden before 2024, a former close adviser to the Clintons said.
Dick Morris, who was an aide to President Bill Clinton, claimed that Hillary is branding herself as a “moderate” alternative to Biden by subtly criticizing his open border agenda, the New York Post reported.
Hillary’s secret plan?
Morris riffed on a recent comment from Clinton stating that “nobody wants open borders who has any idea of how government and countries work.”
Clinton made the statement in an interview blasting Florida governor Ron DeSantis (R) for sending immigrants to the rich white liberal enclave of Martha’s Vineyard. According to Morris, Clinton’s apparently veiled criticism of Biden “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 told John Catsimatidis of The Cats Roundtable.
Of course, it’s true that Biden’s “moderate” campaign image was a shallow fraud, but Hillary doesn’t have much credibility to run as a centrist, either. Remember when she pined for open borders back during her doomed 2016 bid?
My dream is a hemispheric common market, with open trade and open borders … I think we have to have a concerted plan to increase trade already under the current circumstances.
Clinton moving on?
Perhaps Clinton’s recent statements about borders do reflect a political calculation to take a dig at Biden. She could also just be running interference for the Dems by denying the obvious about their immigration agenda.
Either way, Biden — despite his underwater approval ratings and persistently strange behavior — is winning back support from Democratic voters and mainstream media that briefly questioned his fitness over the summer. The libs are in campaign mode, it seems.
Meanwhile, a September poll found that Kamala Harris is the top 2o24 alternative for Democrats, followed by Hillary.
Even if Democrats are willing to risk reliving the trauma of 2016, Clinton was emphatic recently when asked if she would consider running again.
“No, no,” Clinton said. “But I’m going to do everything I can to make sure that we have a president that respects our democracy and the rule of law and upholds our institutions.”
