POLITICAL SUICIDE: Two Democrats are Floating the Idea that Hillary Clinton is ‘Likely’ the Party’s ‘Best Option’ for 2024

Two Democrats have penned an opinion piece claiming that Hillary Clinton is probably the Democratic Party’s best hope of winning the White House during the upcoming 2024 presidential contest.

“If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option,” consultant and pollster Douglas Schoen and former New York City Council president, Manhattan borough president, and state assemblyman Andrew Stein opine.

Schoen describes himself as a Democrat on Twitter. And the description on a New York Post opinion piece by Stein indicates that he is a Democrat.

Schoen and Stein point to President Biden’s lackluster approval ratings and other issues to say that Clinton could fill her party’s leadership void.

“A perfect storm in the Democratic Party is making a once-unfathomable scenario plausible: a political comeback for Hillary Clinton in 2024,” the duo writes. “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.”

Present Biden, whose birthday is on Nov. 20, will not turn 82 until after the 2024 election, which is scheduled for Nov. 5. But if he were to run for re-election and win, he will be 82 years old when he begins his second term.

Clinton, who lost the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump, has previously served as a senator from the state of New York and as the secretary of state under President Barack Obama.

“She is already in an advantageous position to become the 2024 Democratic nominee. She is an experienced national figure who is younger than Mr. Biden and can offer a different approach from the disorganized and unpopular one the party is currently taking,” Stein and Schoen contend.

Joe Biden: Will Run in 2024 If ‘in Good Health,’ and More Likely to If Trump Is GOP Nominee

Resident Joe Biden on Wednesday said that he will run for reelection if he remains in his current state of health and that if former President Donald Trump runs in 2024 it will increase his “prospect of running.”

Biden was asked about running for office again in an interview with ABC’s David Muir.

“Yes, but look, I’m a great respecter of fate,” the 79-year-old president answered. “Fate has intervened in my life many, many times. If I’m in the health I’m in now — if I’m in good health —then, in fact, I would run again.”

Muir asked Biden if he would run as a “rematch against Donald Trump.”

“You’re trying to tempt me now?” Biden laughed. “Sure. Why would I not run against Donald Trump if he were the nominee? That would increase the prospect of running.”

President Biden was also asked about vaccine mandates for airline travel. He said the requirement is “not necessary,” shooting down hopes of several Democratic lawmakers who requested a vaccine air travel mandate in a letter Monday to the administration.
