Gibbs: The Thought of Hillary Being ‘Inevitable’ Makes Her Own Advisers Throw Up

‘If she’s not going to run as inevitable, what did she learn that’s going to change the way she runs for president this time?’

You Won’t Believe What Makes Hillary Clinton’s Advisers ‘Throw Up’ (Washington Free Beacon)

MSNBC contributor Robert Gibbs said he’s sure some Hillary Clinton advisers “threw up a little in their own mouths” at the notion that she was the “inevitable” presidential nominee of the Democratic Party in 2016.

Leading up to the 2008 election season, Clinton was considered a shoo-in by many in the media to take the nomination, but then-Sen. Barack Obama grabbed the nomination instead. Gibbs would go on to be his press secretary after he won election.

In an earlier segment on Morning Joe, a writer pegged the “inevitable” moniker on Clinton, leading Gibbs to caution against that language.
