The GOP stands to win big in 2016 if Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren scores the Democratic presidential nomination, former Maryland Gov. Bob Ehrlich says.

"Oh, we should be so lucky. We should be so lucky," Ehrlich told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"Just pray every night she's the nominee. Pray. 2016 is huge."

Story continues below video.



It will be a far cry from two years ago, when Republicans made major errors in strategy, according to Ehrlich, author of "America: Hope for Change," published by Post Hill Press.

"We screwed up in 2012, [and now have] four more years of damage," he said. "I can't wait until this November when [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid becomes a minority leader, and in two years we'll really fix things."

Ehrlich believes the comments about men, women, and aging by presumed Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton at the Simmons Leadership Conference this week were made to score points.

Clinton said: "As men and women age, you know men are tired of the race. They've been running it since their late teens. They're exhausted all they want to do is take a deep breath, they want to retire …"

"It could have been a trying to suck up to the senior women in this country," Ehrlich said.

"As you know that's more of a Republican voting bloc as opposed to younger women. Can you imagine if … some Republican politicians would have said that? My God, they'd be going crazy, picketing you."

On the subject of Russia's military push into Ukraine, Ehrlich believes Russian President Vladimir Putin is thriving thanks to the world's weak response to his aggressions.

"Many folks who care about politics are students of history and we know what the Vladimir Putin's of the world do and have done throughout the centuries," Ehrlich said.

"When they see weak, they exploit. When they see a power vacuum they take advantage of it and not just the United States, by the way. Western Europe, NATO looks like paper tigers, it's a joke."

Ehrlich said there are many sanctions short of military intervention that can be made against Putin.

"He will push and push and push until sanctions become real and tangible, NATO becomes real and tangible, and we actually do something to help those poor people," he said.

"Until that happens, bullies like [him are] laughing all the way to the bank."
