According to Rep. Beth Van Duyne, R-Texas, the Democrats have “nobody on their bench” if President Joe Biden decides not to run for reelection in 2024, as evidenced by recent reports that Hillary Clinton may make another attempt at the presidency in 2024.
Van Duyne made the comment on “The Chris Salcedo Show” on Wednesday.
She asked who else they would try to run? Will they actually run someone who has previously attempted two runs and failed?
“Is this their greatest chance to defeat us in 2024?” she quipped.
Despite stating unequivocally earlier this year that she would not run for president a third time, Hillary would only say this week in an interview with CBS News anchor Gayle King that she “couldn’t envision” running again. Gayle King remarked that the response was “not a no.”
Following the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling last week to overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade case, which made abortion legal nationally, speculation of a third Clinton run increased among some Democratic analysts.
The top court concluded that because the federal government lacked jurisdiction over the matter, the right to an abortion was not protected by the Constitution and should be returned to the states for individual decision-making.
Democratic commentator Juan Williams stated that the former first lady, a former senator from New York, and former secretary of state are the best remedies at this time in a piece published in The Hill on Monday.
Williams said that Clinton is the ideal candidate to give Democrats a steely spine and draw attention to how the “ultra-MAGA” Republicans, as President Joe Biden describes them, are ripping the country apart. “Last week, the justices of the Supreme Court served as political enforcers for extreme viewpoints on abortion and gun control that are completely at odds with public sentiment.”
Editor-at-large for CNN Although Chris Cillizza doesn’t think Clinton would take on Biden in a primary. In a piece published on Tuesday, he suggested that a field of candidates without the current president may be more difficult to resist.
While Cillizza stated, “I feel it completely improbable that Clinton would run against Biden in a primary in 2024, I also think that an open nomination — assuming Biden declines to run — would be something that would be impossible for Clinton to not at least look at.” Simply said, her name would be mentioned if the seat were available.
Van Duyne argued that the rumors of a second Clinton campaign show how inadequate Kamala Harris’ performance is if prominent Democrats are not considering her as a Biden replacement.
The fact that Biden chose a vice president who isn’t even a contender for president makes a strong message against the present vice president, according to Van Duyne.
The fact that Hillary wants to run again is amusing. How much abuse and humility is this woman willing to sustain?
