Senator BILL Clinton?

This is a partial transcript from "Hannity & Colmes," February 19, 2007, that has been edited for clarity.

SEAN HANNITY, CO-HOST: With Senator Hillary Clinton making her run for the White House, many supporters are looking at husband Bill to fill her Senate seat if she wins.

First-term New York governor Eliot Spitzer, a Democrat, would be forced to appoint a replacement for Hillary. And Clinton supporters are already lobbying the former — for the former president.

Joining us now, former Clinton advisor Dick Morris. Don't forget. You can go to Lyndon Johnson and Bush in common.

COLMES: I'm a little confused. Help me understand something. On one hand you're calling her stubborn, intransigent, digs in. Then you say she flip-flops. How could they both be true?

MORRIS: When she's running for office, she will adopt any mask she can. She needs do. She'll adopt any contrivance or any disguise that she needs to.

But when you get right down to a matter of policy, she works very hard at trying to be consistent with what she really believes. She's very stubborn about that.

HANNITY: Hey, Dick...

MORRIS: And it is my basic belief that Hillary is an ultra liberal and very stubborn about that, which is why I don't think she should be president.

HANNITY: I think the entire Democratic Party's trying to...

MORRIS: By the way, Sean, I...

HANNITY: Hang on a second.

MORRIS: I wanted to mention, Sean, you've got Boortz coming on.


MORRIS: That book is fabulous.

HANNITY: It is a fabulous book.

MORRIS: He wants to repeal the 16th and 17th amendments, and the 18th is already repealed, but he's a great guy.

HANNITY: He's — well, he's coming up in just a minute. So my buddy, Neal, is coming up.

Let me ask you this. Rudy is up in the polls. McCain he's down a little bit in the polls. Romney seems to have flattened off a lot.

MORRIS: McCain is gone, Sean.

HANNITY: Well, and then the question is...

MORRIS: McCain is gone. He raised million and a half bucks last quarter. That's enough for a race for the state assembly.

HANNITY: All right. Hang on. Let me ask you this. One story that is emerging is although he says he won't get in until September if he does get in, is Newt Gingrich. What do you think of his potential candidacy?

MORRIS: Yes. One of my last columns was called "Here comes Newt".

You've got Romney, who the right wing is just turning on. He said that he would be better on gay rights than Kennedy was. And he said he would protect a woman's right to choose in Massachusetts. — He is history.

McCain had some momentum going, but then Rudy stole his thunder. He is raising no money. He's been repudiated in Arkansas. He's trying to get it back by moving to the right on Roe vs. Wade. But his opposition to the Bush tax cuts and his amnesty for illegal immigrants is killing him.

So there's a vacancy for a right wing candidate, and if Newt stays out until September, it will be over by then. But if Gingrich got into this race right now, and I hope he's listening, he could give Rudy a heck of a fight for his money.

HANNITY: Do you think he could win the nomination? And how do you...

MORRIS: No, I think Rudy would still beat him. But I said he could give him a heck of a fight for his money. Otherwise, Rudy is going to win this in a coronation.

HANNITY: Let me ask you this, then. If it's Rudy and say, if he chose Newt Gingrich as his vice president, would it be Hillary and Evan Bayh?

MORRIS: No. I think it's going to be Hillary and either Richardson or Obama to expand the electorate and get more blacks and Hispanics to vote.

Richardson's the better choice. She likes Richardson. She knows him from the cabinet, and Hispanics are really up for grabs. But she'll alienate the blacks by beating Obama, and she may have to put him on the ticket.

For the Republicans, if it's a woman and a black on the Democratic ticket, duh, you run Condoleezza Rice as vice president.

HANNITY: Would she take it?

MORRIS: Yes. Everybody takes vice president, sometimes with twisted arms. And it's Condi's style. She likes to audition. She does a good job as secretary of state, and you say, "OK, it's time for you to move up."

And then in 2012, Sean, we have Condi versus Hillary, and Eileen's and my book goes into the...

HANNITY: There's your dream ticket.

COLMES: I thought Hannity was going to run in 2012. Aren't you going to run in 2012, Hannity?

HANNITY: 2016.

COLMES: You're announcing right now?

HANNITY: I'm announcing right now.

COLMES: 2016?

HANNITY: I will run for the presidency.

COLMES: In 2016.

HANNITY: As soon as I can get rid of you. I'm kidding. It's a joke. It's a joke.

COLMES: You know what? It's too long. It's too long from now.

Dick, thank you very much.

MORRIS: Thank you.

COLMES: We'll have Dick comment on that announcement next time he's on the show.
