Former State Secretary Hillary Clinton — a twice-failed candidate for the White House — should have learned to stop making predictions after Nov. 8, 2016.
But she just made a bold prediction, seemingly gleaned from a crystal ball.

According to Clinton, former President Donald Trump is “likely” to win the Republican nomination in 2024, but he’s headed for defeat in the general election against incumbent President Joe Biden.
The reason? Trump’s legal woes.
“So, he has been indicted. And there may be others as well. But he has said he’s going to keep running, and there’s nothing in our current system of laws that would prevent him from running. But, even if he gets the Republican nomination, he cannot, in my view, be re-elected president,” Clinton said in an interview with the U.K.’s Sky News.
“More people are onto him and his behavior than they were before. He has a hard core of support that is likely to help him win the Republican nomination. But, in a general election against Biden, I do not believe he can win.”
Clinton discussed Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, a potential candidate in the GOP’s presidential primary. In particular, she was asked to predict the results of a hypothetical matchup between DeSantis and Biden.
“It’s hard to tell,” Clinton said. “I mean, DeSantis is unproven. Nobody, really, outside of Florida, knows very much about him. And in Florida, they’re watching him do crazy things. I actually believe that President Biden will be re-elected regardless of who the Republican nominee is… It really should be a matter of what he has done as president.”
Predictably, Clinton still appeared sore about her loss to Trump in 2016’s presidential election.
“Well, I always thought about him,” Clinton said. “And if you follow him, I think you can see it, as well. He accuses people of doing things he himself is doing. It’s a form of psychological projection. I always thought that his record in business in particular — but then, as we saw him in politics in government — he cared nothing about rules. He cared nothing about the law.”

Sky News was founded by Rupert Murdoch, best known as the owner of Fox News Channel. On Tuesday, F.N.C. paid $787.5 million to settle a defamation suit out of court.
For a Murdoch outlet, Sky News went remarkably easy on the career Democrat.
The interviewer, Beth Rigby, nodded along with Clinton and asked softball questions. At one point, Rigby even asked, “How does it make you feel?”
Rigby asked, “Do you ever worry that President Biden — he will be in his 80s in a second term — is too old for the job?”
“I feel like I could do the job,” Clinton said, laughing. “I’m in my mid-70s.”
“You could run in 2028,” Rigby interjected.
Clinton disagreed. “Well, I doubt that,” Clinton said.
