Democratic strategist and former Bill Clinton adviser Doug Schoen turned on Hillary this week when he revealed a plausible scenario whereby she will not win the Democratic nomination.
“Very simply, if she loses California, as is possible…” Schoen told Fox News host Bill Hemmer. “If there is a finding of some culpability by the Justice Department in the email scandal, the super delegates may well move away from her, aided by what I’m sure will be a rule change proposal by Bernie Sanders.”
“If Mr. Sanders wins California, Montana and North Dakota on Tuesday and stays competitive in New Jersey, he could well be within 200 pledged delegates of Mrs. Clinton, making a vote in favor of the rules change on superdelegates more likely,” Schoen wrote in his piece.
Bloomberg Politics reported that Hillary has a 1,769-1,501 lead over Sanders in pledged delegates, which increases to 2,312-1,545 when super delegates are thrown in.
Schooner agreed with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley’s prediction that Vice President Joe Biden may enter the race.
“I see Biden chomping at the bit. My sources tell me he wants to get in this race as Monica suggested eight, nine months ago. We could have a whole new race,” he told Hemmer.
Crowley then chimed in, saying, “Keep in mind, if Biden were to run, that [the Democrats] would need to take care of annoyed women if Hillary goes down in flames and the Bernie Sanders left, and they do that with Elizabeth Warren.”
“It’s June 2nd, that’s one hell of scenario,” Hemmer said. “California, the legal issues and the super delegates.”
