Rove: Hillary Moving to the Left of Obama ‘a Great’ Election Opportunity for GOP

‘— Because there’s no way to climb back from being on the left wing of the Democratic Party by the time of the general election’

WALLACE: "What does the excitement over Bernie Sanders tell you about Hillary Clinton?"
ROVE: "I’m in agreement with the congresswoman. It might surprise her. But Hillary Clinton understands that the left of the Democratic Party does not trust her, and she made an announcement speech this week in which she basically said I’m not going to be Bill. I’m going to be more like Barack Obama. In fact, I’m going to be to the left of Barack Obama. And that’s going to be great opportunity for the Republicans in the general election, because there’s no way to climb back from being on the left wing of the Democratic Party by the time of the general election."
