"She will win."

On any given day, Republicans call Hillary Rodham Clinton a deeply flawed future presidential candidate. Or a formidable one. Or, with the right amount of Republican-led scrutiny, one who might not run after all. As the former secretary of state, first lady and New York senator prepares for a high-profile book tour in June, Republicans are using a variety of approaches to try to define Clinton and drive down the mostly positive approval ratings she built while in President Barack Obama's Cabinet. At the same time, the GOP is building an anti-Clinton infrastructure that aims to undercut her appeal more than two years ahead of the presidential election.

Glenn Beck said on his radio program Tuesday that "Hillary Clinton will be the next president of the United States."

Beck said he received information from a friend of his, who is also friends with the "Hillary people," about Clinton's campaign strategy in 2016. Beck said that when he heard it, he said, "Oh my gosh, she's going to win the presidency."

Beck said Clinton's "people" told his friend: "The right is so stupid. They just don't get it. You guys are going to all be fighting on Benghazi and everything else, and here's what Hillary is going to do. [She is going to say], 'Do you remember when America was good? Do you remember when we had jobs and we were building towards a brighter future, and things were really happening? The Clinton administration, we had it under control. Things were good, and ... we're going to do better. We're going to replant our flag in the traditional things that you understand.'"

"And this is what made me say, 'Oh, my gosh, she's going to win,'" Beck said. "Pat and I both have said in the past, 'I would so gladly take Bill Clinton right now. Don't those years seem simple and good [compared to today]?'"

"And what we will do is play the game of technicality, technicality -- all of them valid," Beck said. "But that's what it would be viewed as. We already have friends on the left who say, 'Will you guys just shut up about Benghazi?' They've won that. Same with the IRS. All of it. And while we're talking about technicalities and the past, they're going to be talking about a past that was brightly remembered, and they will talk about the America we will become. She will win."

Beck co-host Stu Burguiere pointed out that Clinton was unable to transmit that vision in 2008.

"She would have done it, had it not been for Barack Obama," Beck said. "It was the wild card."

"She had a lot of opportunity, Glenn," Burguiere said. "And remember, this is the same person who had a 75 percent approval rating as of a year ago, and now that she's been talking again, she's down to under 50. As soon as we start hearing from Hillary Clinton, we realize we don't like Hillary Clinton."

"Until we start hearing before from John Boehner, Jeb Bush," Beck responded.

Burguiere agreed: "All the strategy against Jeb Bush, she'll win by 60 points."

"There's no vision," Beck said of the GOP. "It's all about the past, past, past. Where is the vision for the future?"
