Dick Morris: Obama Demeaned Hillary, Pumped Biden on '60 Minutes'

President Barack Obama damned his former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton with faint praise while boosting Vice President Joe Biden in Sunday's "60 Minutes" interview, political analyst Dick Morris tells Newsmax TV. 

Obama "said Biden would probably go down as one of the best vice presidents in history, that he sits next to me and he probably says to himself, I could do this job," Morris told "The Hard Line" host Ed Berliner."

And with Hillary there was no word of praise about her, simply saying that she made a mistake, acknowledged the mistake, saying that she probably did not endanger the national security. But if that's the best he can do for an endorsement, then with friends like that you don't need enemies."

Obama gave Clinton the benefit of the doubt on Benghazi, but she is, after all, the current front-runner, Morris said. Biden, meanwhile, hasn't even announced whether he'll enter the race.

"Look, Obama is not going to dump on Hillary, but if Biden gets into the race, he'll say increasingly good things about Biden and I expect will eventually endorse him," Morris said.

As for Tuesday's Democratic debate, Morris said he agrees with the theory that Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders basically already has won it.

Clinton is well-known, so people already have made up their minds about her, while the lesser-known candidates, Sanders, former Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, former Rhode Island Gov. Lincoln Chaffee and former Sen. Jim Webb, will get a bounce.

Clinton, meanwhile, will spend her time attacking Republicans and not Sanders, Morris said, because to do so would be to alienate her liberal base.

"I expect her to be on the defensive the whole debate about her flip-flops on Keystone Pipeline and trade," he said.
