A former adviser to Bill Clinton is saying Hillary Clinton “wants to” enter the 2020 presidential election race. During a Sunday interview, Dick Morris said he thinks Clinton is hoping for a set of circumstances where she could enter the race.
“My feeling is that she wants to do it — she feels that God put her on the Earth to do it,” stated Morris. “But she’s hesitant because she realizes the timing is bad.”
Morris suggested that if former Vice President Joe Biden were to drop out of the primary, there would be an opening for Clinton as a moderate candidate. He said she would receive momentum from moderates who believe Elizabeth Warren is too progressive to win a general election.
Morris added that former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg would be a very good candidate in the general election, but wouldn’t be able to win the Democrat primary.
The former first lady recently joked about entering the race.

Additionally, Mark Penn, a former adviser to the Clintons, believes Hillary Clinton will make another run for president in 2020.
Penn, a frequent contributor to The Hill, co-wrote a Sunday op-ed for The Wall Street Journal with Andrew Stein, a former Democratic Manhattan borough president and president of the New York City Council.
“True to her name, Mrs. Clinton will fight this out until the last dog dies,” the pair wrote. “She won’t let a little thing like two stunning defeats stand in the way of her claim to the White House.”
They said Clinton will not allow her “humiliating loss” to President Trump during the 2016 presidential race to end her political career.
“You can expect her to run for president once again,” they predicted. “Maybe not at first, when the legions of Senate Democrats make their announcements, but definitely by the time the primaries are in full swing.”
