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.
