For all the talk of GOP troubles regarding its presidential primary, Democrats find themselves stuck between a senile old man who may not be able to physically run, and the heir apparent, who just so happens to be one of the most unlikable, untalented politicians in history. That’s left party power brokers with basically one option: Continue to play “Weekend at Bernie’s” with Joe Biden no matter what the cost.
… But that leaves Harris on the outside looking in, and she’s not going to go quietly into that good night. She’s as ambitious as she is terrible at politics. There is no scenario where Democrats don’t utterly destroy themselves with accusations of racism and sexism if anyone steps up to seriously challenge her. That means Harris is not only the second-in-line for 2024, but even if Biden loses, she’s going to be a problem in 2028 as well.
The Democrats deserve this. They picked a vice president with essentially zero relevant experience for the job who was so bad of a presidential candidate that she didn’t even make it to the first primary. And that was with mountains of unearned media coverage trying to push her across the finish line. Harris is their problem, and it’s a self-inflicted one. They better hope Biden doesn’t get any worse than he is because if he can’t run, Democrats are staring at oblivion.
