Hillary Clinton may be announcing a presidential run any day now, but Joe Scarborough sees the 2016 race ending in similar fashion to 2008.
In an appearance with radio host Hugh Hewitt Friday, the “Morning Joe” host said that he doesn’t think Clinton will end up winning the White House in 2016, adding that many people close to Clinton are worried about how a general election would turn out for the former secretary of state.
“We were talking about Hillary’s server. Is it enough to keep her out of the race?”
“No,” Scarborough told Hewitt. “It’s also not enough to keep Democrats from voting for her. I do think if there are 3, 4, 5 more things like this…at some point they’ll have enough of her because, unlike Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton is not as adept at tiptoeing through these crises.”
“Hillary’s going to win, and we’ll see what happens on the Republican side,” Scarborough continued. “I do think it hurts her though.”
Scarborough also added to Hewitt that he doesn’t think she could make it through 20 minutes of questioning from the “Morning Joe” panel.
“Do you think she has a glass jaw?” Hewitt asked.
“I think she has a glass jaw and I’ll be really blunt, I don’t think she’s going to be the next President of the United States,” the former Florida Congressman said flatly. “Everybody acts like she’s inevitable. But I know a lot of people very close to Hillary Clinton that are very worried now that she has what it takes to win a general election. They think she’s going to win a primary, the Democratic primary, but they’re very worried.”
