A former adviser to President Bill Clinton, Dick Morris, is fueling the speculation of whether former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will run in 2020.
On John Catsimatidis’ radio show over the weekend, Morris said, when it comes to the 2020 presidential election, the question is, “Will the ghost of Hillary Clinton come out and get into the election?”
He went on to suggest that Clinton “wants to,” “feels entitled” and “compelled” to join the presidential race.
“She feels that God put her on the Earth to do it,” Morris said, adding, “But she’s hesitant because she realizes the timing is bad.”
If Clinton will “actually press the button,” Morris responded, “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.”

Clinton has made comments recently that suggest she hasn’t tossed aside a run in the 2020 presidential election.
As IJR previously reported, President Donald Trump suggested that Clinton “enter the race to try and steal it away from Uber Left Elizabeth Warren,” in which Clinton responded on Twitter, “Don’t tempt me. Do your job.”
She then told “PBS NewsHour,” “Maybe there does need to be a rematch. I mean, obviously, I can beat him again.”
Additionally, a longtime adviser to the former secretary of state, Philippe Reines, added to the speculation as he told Fox News on October 23 that Clinton hasn’t closed the doors to a 2020 bid, as IJR reported.
However, the speculation hasn’t been met with a complete warm embrace, as HBO “Real Time with Bill Maher” host Bill Maher suggested on Friday evening that the Clinton’s “go away” and don’t attend next year’s Democratic National Convention.
“We can’t be associating them with the Democratic Party,” Maher said.
