Top Democrats close to Hillary Clinton are reportedly telling her she might have a shot at the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination — provided former Vice President Joe Biden doesn’t run.

Democratic strategist Steve McMahon said Monday night on the MSNBC show “Hardball” that “some people close to the Clintons and close to Hillary Clinton who look at the field … think if Joe Biden doesn’t run — it’s an awfully weak field … someone like Hillary Clinton could get back in.”

He added that some of these people are “whispering in her ear” that she might be able to win the nomination if Biden is out of the picture, Breitbart reported.

CNN’s most recent national poll of potential 2020 Democratic candidates had Biden with a 20-point lead over Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

Biden got 33 percent in the poll, while Sanders received 13 percent. Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) was next with 9 percent, followed by Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) with 8 percent.

Biden said recently that he is not a 2020 candidate “at this point.”

Hillary Clinton has found herself in uncomfortable territory with the rise of the #MeToo movement, as many look back to her husband’s behavior while in the Oval Office as a prime example of a male’s abuse of power.

Clinton said last Sunday, however, that the affair her husband had in the ’90s, with then-White House intern Monica Lewinsky, wasn’t an abuse of power — because the then-22-year-old Lewinsky was an adult.

Hillary stood by her husband as he denied allegations of sexual harassment and assault.

CBS correspondent Tony Dokoupil asked Clinton in the interview, “What role, if any, did you play in criticizing the character of the women who have accused Bill of sexual misconduct?”

“None, none, no role,” she responded emphatically.

And then, following that up with a rote statement that provided not a bit of clarity on her answer, she added, “I take responsibility for my life and my actions.”

Hillary will join Bill on November 18 to kick off a 13-city North American speaking tour in Las Vegas, and the two will undoubtedly have to answer some tough questions on the #MeToo movement.

Live Nation Entertainment describes the events as “joint on-stage conversations with the two leaders sharing stories and inspiring anecdotes that shaped their historic careers in public service, while also discussing issues of the day and looking toward the future.”
