Two Dems have penned an opinion piece making claims that Hillary Clinton is more than likely the Democratic Party’s best hope of getting into the White House during the next presidential contest in 2024.
“If Democrats want any chance at all of winning the presidential election in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely going to be their best hope,” pollster and consultant Douglas Schoen and ex NY City Council Pres., Manhattan borough Pres., and the state assemblyman Andrew Stein opine.
Schoen has described himself as a Democrat on the social networking site Twitter. And the description on a NY Post opinion piece written Stein shows that he is a Democrat.
Stein and Schoen point to President Joe Biden’s terrible approval ratings and other problems to say that Hillary Clinton could fill the Democratic party’s leadership void.
“A perfect storm in the Dem. Party is making a once-unthinkable scenario possible: Hillary Clinton being able to make a political comeback in the 2024 presidential race,” the duo writes. “Several circumstances—Pres. Biden’s low approval ratings, doubts over his ability to run for re-election at 82, Vice Pres. Kamala Harris’s unpopularity, and the absence of any other strong Dems to lead the ticket in 2024—have produced a leadership vacuum within the party, which Mrs. Clinton could possibly fill.”
Present Joe Biden, whose birthday is on November 20, will not turn 82 until after the 2024 presidential election, which is scheduled for November 5. But if he were to make another run for re-election and win it, he will be 82 years old when he starts his second term.
Clinton, who lost the 2016 pres. election to Donald Trump, has previously served as a congresswoman from the state of New York and as the sec. of state under Pres. Barack Obama.
“She already has an advantage to become the 2024 Dem. nominee. She is an experienced national political figure who is younger than Pres. Joe Biden and could offer a different strategy from the disorganized and highly unpopular one that the Democratic party is currently taking,” Schoen and Stein contend.
