Vice President Joe Biden has to get into the Democratic presidential race to prevent Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders from winning the nomination, political strategist Dick Morris told Newsmax TV
"I don't think there's any possibility that they will not let him run," Morris said of party officials in an interview with "Newsmax Prime" host J.D. Hayworth.
"If he doesn't run, Bernie Sanders can beat Hillary [Clinton] and be the Democratic nominee — and that would be just unbelievably bad for the Democrats."

Morris is the co-author of The New York Times best-selling book, "Power Grab: Obama's Dangerous Plan for a One-Party Nation."
He added that Republican front-runner Donald Trump could end up on the better end in his battle with Fox News and chairman and CEO Roger Ailes.
"It'll hurt Fox. I don’t think it will hurt Trump," Morris said. "Fox is going to have to cover Trump as part of the news — and if they don't, nobody's going to watch their news.
"I believe that Fox is in the tank for Bush," he added, referring to former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. "Roger Ailes was really [George H.W.] Bush's mentor and guide in politics."
Morris worked with Ailes on the elder Bush's campaign against former Massachusetts Gov. Michael Dukakis' campaign in 1988.
"I do not think they would have let Megyn Kelly open their debate unloading on Trump if they were not trying to dampen Trump and bolster Bush," Morris said.
