“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” …. If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option.”
(legalinsurrection)Please. Please. Pretty please. Pretty please with sugar on top. And a cherry, let’s not forget the cherry.
How much fun would it be, from a purely blogospheric perspective, for Hillary Clinton to mount a 2024 ‘comeback kid’ campaign as the ‘change’ candidate. I might need abdominal surgery either from laughing or puking so hard I hurt something.
Doug Shoen, longtime Democrat pollster, and Andrew Stein, longtime NYC politician, make the case in The Wall Street Journal, 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.
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.
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.”
Yup, nothing says “young[er]” and “change” quite like Hillary. But continue:
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.
Of course she wants to run. The Russkie’s and Comey stole it from her in 2016:
Hillary Clinton remains ambitious, outspoken and convinced that if not for Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey’s intervention and Russian interference that she would have won the 2016 election—and she may be right.
Come on! Enough with this insurrectionist talk refusing to accept the legitimacy of an election.
Here’s the punch line:
Given the likelihood that Democrats will lose control of Congress in 2022, we can anticipate that Mrs. Clinton will begin shortly after the midterms to position herself as an experienced candidate capable of leading Democrats on a new and more successful path….
If Democrats want a fighting chance at winning the presidency in 2024, Mrs. Clinton is likely their best option.
Sure, go ahead and laugh. Laughing at the Clintons can be dangerous to one’s health.
On the plus side, though, maybe we’ll finally find those 30,000 deleted emails.
