Axelrod: Hillary Clinton ‘Probably’ The 2016 Nominee (VIDEO)

Former Obama adviser David Axelrod touted Hillary Clinton as the likely 2016 Democratic presidential nominee in two separate cable news appearances Friday.

“I think that Hillary Clinton probably will be the candidate,” Axelrod told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.” “If she doesn’t run, I think Biden will run.”

Later on “Andrea Mitchell Reports,” Axelrod said that he thinks it’s “highly unlikely” that Biden and Clinton will run against one another for the nomination.

“She’s holding the cards right now as far as I’m concerned,” Axelrod said.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
