Hillary Clinton could face an uphill battle in her presumed quest to become president — from her own party, says Michael Barone, senior political analyst for the Washington Examiner.

"She faces a certain amount of quandary in the Democratic primaries even though she starts in with support from a majority of voters,'' Barone told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

'The problem she faces, on the one hand, it's clear that she would be better off in the general election running for the third Clinton term rather than the third Obama term.

"But it's also clear that the rising tide of sentiment in the Democratic Party is on the left,'' he said Monday.

Barone — author, with Chuck McCutcheon, of "The Almanac of American Politics: 2014," published by the University of Chicago Press — added:

"We've seen that that could hurt the Democrats as it did in 2000 when Ralph Nader got 3 percent of the vote rather than going to Al Gore."
