Hillary Clinton's apparently inevitable victory in the Democratic presidential primaries could hit a roadblock due to her age, former White House candidate Howard Dean says.

"She's of my generation, not of the new upcoming generation out of the Barack Obama generation," said the former Vermont governor who was, for a time, front-runner for his party's nomination in 2004.

"That's the only weakness she's really got."

Dean told MSNBC's "Morning Joe" that he believes Clinton, who will be 69 by the 2016 election, will face a primary battle and not be crowned as nominee. He said Govs. Martin O'Malley of Maryland and Andrew Cuomo of New York are both likely candidates. O'Malley will be 53 by November 2016, and Cuomo will be 58.

But he still thinks the former first lady, senator, and secretary of state will prevail.

"I love Hillary, and I can't imagine anybody coming between her and the presidency this time," he said. "But, you know, there's a long, long way to go.

"The difference, though, is I don't think there's a Barack Obama who's going to emerge, a flaming supernova if you will, to come on to the scene and sort of steal her moment."
