Hillary Clinton’s 2024 Election Comeback
The WSJ discusses Hillary Clinton’s 2024 Election Comeback
A perfect storm in the Democratic Party is making a once-unfathomable scenario plausible: a political comeback for Hillary Clinton in 2024.
Several circumstances—President Biden’s low approval rating, doubts over his capacity to run for re-election at 82, Vice President Kamala Harris’s unpopularity, and the absence of another strong Democrat to lead the ticket in 2024—have created a leadership vacuum in the party, which Mrs. Clinton viably could fill.
If Democrats lose control of Congress in 2022, Mrs. Clinton can use the party’s loss as a basis to run for president again, enabling her to claim the title of “change candidate.”
Based on her latest public statements, it’s clear that Mrs. Clinton not only recognizes her position as a potential front-runner but also is setting up a process to help her decide whether or not to run for president again. She recently warned of the electoral consequences in the 2022 midterms if the Democratic Party continues to align itself with its progressive wing and urged Democrats to reject far-left positions that isolate key segments of the electorate.
In a recent MSNBC interview, Mrs. Clinton called on Democrats to engage in “careful thinking about what wins elections, and not just in deep-blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat, or so-called progressive Democrat, is going to win.” She also noted that party’s House majority “comes from people who win in much more difficult districts.”
Mrs. Clinton also took a veiled jab at the Biden administration and congressional Democrats in an effort to create distance: “It means nothing if we don’t have a Congress that will get things done, and we don’t have a White House that we can count on to be sane and sober and stable and productive.”
Even Bill Clinton recently set the stage for his wife’s potential 2024 candidacy, referring to her in an interview with People magazine as “the most qualified person to run for office in my lifetime, including me,” adding that not electing her in 2016 was “one of the most profound mistakes we ever made.”
Democrat's Best Chance ?!
That article was an op-ed by Douglas E. Schoen and Andrew Stein. They concluder with this hair-raising idea.
"If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option," concluded Schoen and Stein.
As long as we are discussing Fantasyland why not a rematch between Trump and Hillary?
Is this really the best the country can do?
I call it Fantasyland but that matchup is possible, however unlikely.
What is pure Fantasyland is the notion that Hillary can possibly be the Democrat's best hope.
Any moderate, non-lightning-rod would have a better chance. How about Krysten Sinema? Tulsi Gabbard?
Progressives cannot stand Simema, but so what? if Sinema won the nomination, their choice would be to vote Republican, sit the election out, or hold their nose and vote for Sinema.
The latter is what would happen.
Fantasies aside, independents and swing voters will determine the election for the third consecutive election.
Nominating a lightning rod loser like Hillary is nothing but another attempt to lose again.
Thanks for Tuning In!
