According to Politico, Fox News has decided not to re-sign Dick Morris to a new contract. Morris has not been on the network for months following last November’s election, when he repeatedly claimed that Mitt Romney would win in a landslide.
Morris first achieved national fame as a political adviser to Bill Clinton during his tenure as Arkansas Governor and his presidency, and has been regarded as one of the strongest advocates for Clinton’s ‘triangulation’ policy. Basically, this policy involved taking Republican policy advantages off the table by agreeing with them, to a large extent. This resulted in such legislation as welfare reform and DOMA. The idea was that once this was done, then, on the remaining issues, Democrats would hold the upper hand.
After leaving the White House, he became a critic of Clinton and of Democrats, generally.
Morris is scheduled to appear on CNN today.
