Donna Brazile, who was former Vice President Al Gore’s presidential campaign manager and who currently serves as the vice chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, said Sunday that Hillary Clinton will likely be crowned as the frontrunner immediately by Democrats if she decides to run for president.

“So while I do think it's too early to handicap the race, there is no question, if Hillary Clinton gets into the race, there will be a coronation of her, because there are so many Democrats who last time around supported her, who I think are anxious to see her back out there again,” Brazile said on ABC’s “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”

Brazile seemed to downplay any potential contenders Clinton would face within the party, including Vice President Joe Biden.

“Martin O'Malley has made some noise recently that he's interested,” she told Stephanopoulos. “Of course we have Joe Biden, Kristen Gillibrand, the senator from the great state here of New York. Elizabeth Warren, there is a lot of buzz around her, and of course, Governor Cuomo here from New York. A lot of talk. And let me not forget Joe Biden, because he will call me this afternoon and remind me.”
