But Carville, who served as the lead strategist on former President Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 campaign, also suggested that Hillary Clinton still had potential as a candidate.

Carville noted that in each election in which she’s competed, she won the popular vote. He pointed to her 2000 Senate campaign, 2008 run in the Democratic presidential primary as well as the 2016 general election.

“I think I’ve counted something like 16 times in a row that a Clinton has run – either her or him – they’ve always gotten the most votes, so there’s something to be said for that,” Carville said.
