Via American Briefing:
Several Democrats are asking Hillary Clinton to make a political comeback for 2024. Douglas E. Schoen recently wrote an article for The Hill explaining that Hillary Clinton has a good chance of making a major political comeback in 2024 and that she should take this opportunity.
President Joe Biden: Schoen referenced President Joe Biden’s plummeting approval rating and the general doubt around his ability to run again as one of the main reasons Hillary Clinton should return to political life.
Since August 2021, a majority of Americans have disapproved of Biden’s performance as President. As of July 2022, President Biden has an approval rating of 38.8%, and experts suggest that this number will continue to get lower as we approach the midterms.
A Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll found that 71% of Americans do not want to see Biden run for President again. Party speculation on Biden’s viability as a candidate has also hit a fever pitch.
Schoen wrote over at The Hill, “While Biden was the right person to defeat former President Trump in 2020, he is clearly not the right person to lead the Democratic Party going forward — as only 36 percent of Democrats believe that Biden gives them the best chance to win the presidency in 2024, per recent polling.”
Hillary Clinton: Schoen points to Hillary Clinton’s record as a decorated politician in Washington as to why she should make a return to the highest level of American politics.
“Regardless of one’s own political affiliation or opinion of Clinton, the country knows her as an experienced politician and a champion of women’s rights. From her declaration at the United Nations in 1995 that ‘women’s rights are human rights‘ to being the first woman nominated as a major party’s candidate for President in 2016, she offers the exact type of leadership that the Democratic Party desperately needs,” Schoen wrote at The Hill.
Fox News contributor Juan Williams stated earlier this week, “Democrats need a strong voice ready to fight to restore women’s rights, now that the Supreme Court has struck down Roe v. Wade. There’s only one Hillary Clinton.”
Schoen also points out in his article, “it’s clear that Clinton not only recognizes her position as a potential front-runner but also is setting up a process to gauge whether or not she should pursue the presidency.”
2022 Midterm Election: Democrats are currently in an untenable political situation heading into 2022. Democrats are expected to experience significant losses this midterm. Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich claims that Republicans should expect to pick up “between 25 and 70 seats” in the House.
Schoen wrote at The Hill, “Democrats are headed for a blowout loss in November, even worse than in 1994 and 2010 — the two worst midterm election years for the party in recent history — when they lost 53 and 63 seats, respectively, per Gallup’s analysis of four key national mood indicators.”
“To be sure, Democrats’ confidence in Biden will only decline further after the party experiences a shellacking in the midterm elections. These voters will be looking for a change candidate who is experienced, effective, savvy and committed to the issues they care most about — namely, women’s rights and civil rights,” Schoen continued.
Impact of Dobbs v. Jackson: The recent Supreme Court ruling in Dobbs v. Jackson has significantly affected the thoughts of Democrat strategists. John Ellis, the founder of News Items, wrote earlier this week on Substack that the ruling is a ripe opportunity for Hillary Clinton to launch a campaign.
“The Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe vs. Wade creates the opening for Hillary Clinton to get out of stealth mode and start down the path toward declaring her candidacy for the 2024 Democratic presidential nomination,” Ellis wrote.
Hillary Clinton has already capitalized on the overturning of Roe v. Wade in a public statement at the Aspen Ideas Festival. Clinton called the overturning of Roe v. Wade “the most arrogant misreading of history in law that you could ever find.”
Clinton also found the time to discuss the record of Justice Clarence Thomas, “He is signaling exactly what he intends to signal to judges at the lower level in the federal system, judges in the state systems, legislators, attorneys generals — ‘Hey, start figuring out how to get some cases ….”
Democrats Lack a Rising Star: Hillary Clinton may be the only option for Democrats in 2024, as other potential Biden replacements appear lackluster to voters.
Schoen pointed to Kamala Harris as a prime example of someone who should be able to take over as leader of the Democrat party but fails to do so. “The most natural successor would be Harris. However, Harris is even more unpopular than Biden and would almost guarantee a Republican victory in 2024.”
I guess there is a good chance that one of the puppeteers of Biden will come to the forefront. As a business woman that worked my way from nothing to being able to take care of family members in need and build low income housing to 25 years, I loath the likes of Clinton who did nothing for Bengazi Americans and later stated the likes of ‘what does it matter?’ while she destroyed evidence and pilfered riches through a nonprofit. Does even a desperate democrat want her kind of dirty politics which is what we already have in place that needs to go.
He says, the Issues the democrats care about most, women’s rights and civil rights??? Boy, are they going to get a shellacking in November. This guys head is still in the 1970’s ! It’s the economy stupid!
I’d rather vote for a 17-year-old than vote for her.
So the dems think all the citizens who yelled lock her up have forgotten what a crook she is so they want to replace 1 crook with another crook.
She’s still a part of the elite ruling class that wants to rule over all the rest of us deplorable’s and tax the heck out of us so they can buy more votes
I think the demons will put up Michelle (Obozo) Obama. They know that their liberals can be bought with some small thing that they perceive as being free. He gave us a phone, he going to do more. Remember that one. The very sad thing is that a huge amount of the people would vote for her. Our people are ignorant and the demonic democrat politicians know it and take full advantage of it.
Michelle “Meathead” Obama.
Oh no, not her.
Please throw a buck of water on her to see if she melts. If that don’t work drop her in the world’s deepest hole with Obummer, obiden , Aoc, the squad and pour concrete. What a waste of concrete! Anybody who would vote for that witch / bitch is totally out of their mind. She wants to become dictator. She is still pissed she lost to Trump. Always felt sorry for Bill and wondered why he was chasing other women. Can you even think of trying to bed that! You may not survive. That’s sad that she is the best they could come up with. But they dug that cess pool and now have to deal with it. Hope they all drown in it.
I didn’t really care for Trump, but dam sure didn’t want Witch Hillery in there. Way it’s going we may be in WWIII, and DC will be nuked and solve our problem so we can start over. What a JOKE we have.
Even Bill did not want her in the Whitehouse, he preferred Monica in the Blue dress.
Bad as the hildabeast is I would prefer this mental midget to Gavin Newsom, the hair jell has soaked into his brain
Funny, They said the same thing about Joe. And look how that has turned out.
