Americans have begun speculating former presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is preparing to make another run for the White House in 2024.
Background: President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have been experiencing a historic drop in approval ratings for months, causing many Americans to begin looking elsewhere to possible 2024 Democrat contenders.
President Biden is also the oldest President in modern history and has become known for his regular gaffes such as forgetting names, mumbling, and making other mistakes typically associated with senior citizens. Biden will be 82 when he runs for his second term.
In 2016, Hillary Clinton, stunned Americans when she lost the election to Republican Donald Trump. Since then, she’s largely stayed out of the spotlight and Washington, D.C while still remaining a prominent figure within the Democrat Party.
What Happened: Two Democrat strategists published an article with The Wall Street Journal, speculating Clinton is preparing to run for president in 2024 based on recent comments and behavior from both of the Clintons.
Hillary Clinton said in an interview with MSNBC that Democrats should be “careful thinking about what wins elections, and not just in deep-blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat, or so-called progressive Democrat, is going to win.” (per The Wall Street Journal)
She also noted that the Democrat party’s House majority “comes from people who win in much more difficult districts.”
Clinton also took a thinly veiled hit at the Biden administration which has faced criticism over its poor progress on Biden’s agenda and other Democrat priorities.
“It means nothing if we don’t have a Congress that will get things done, and we don’t have a White House that we can count on to be sane and sober and stable and productive,” Clinton said.
What Happens Next: Throughout Biden’s term Clinton will likely try to shape her image to convince voters she is a credible alternative option to Biden or a possible campaign from Vice President Harris.
However, former President Trump has also hinted at launching a third presidential campaign in 2024, teeing up a potential rematch between the 2016 rivals
