Zogby, Shirley: Clinton as Nominee Not a Sure Thing

Does Hillary Clinton's well-reviewed appearance before the House Select Committee on Benghazi make her quest for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination a sure thing?

Absolutely not, veteran pollster John Zogby, CEO of Zogby Analytics, and Craig Shirley, a presidential historian and principal at Shirley & Banister Public Affairs, said Monday on "Newsmax Prime" with J.D. Hayworth.

"No. No, no, no. She's had a very good 10 days, there's no question about it, and she's soared in those 10 days — [but] this is far from over," Zogby said.

"Democrats have this very powerful half a party of progressives. Let's go back to [Sen. Eugene] McCarthy and [Sen. George] McGovern and [Sen.] Ted Kennedy and [Sen.] Gary Hart and so on down the road and they have a voice in [Sen.] Bernie Sanders.

"Bernie's doing well in Iowa and he's doing very well in New Hampshire. This is not a lock yet. Stay tuned."

Shirley added that while Clinton can rest a bit easier, she's not out of the woods.

"She gave herself a little breathing room, but I agree with John, that in non-incumbent years, the Democratic Party never nominates its front-runner,” Shirley said.

"Only once in 1984 did they nominate the front-runner, Walter Mondale, and he almost lost to Gary Hart … In fact, I'll go so far to say is that Hillary will not be the nominee.”

Zogby is author of "First Globals: Understanding, Managing, & Unleashing the Potential of Our Millennial Generation," written with Joan Snyder Kuhl and sold by Amazon Digital Services.

Shirley is the author of "Last Act: The Final Years and Emerging Legacy of Ronald Reagan," published by Thomas Nelson.
