I'm just trying to chill on this lovely Tuesday evening and for some reason decided to check Drudge ... and was greeted with some nightmare fuel:
Honestly wasn't ready for that. The idea of Hillary actually running AGAIN had only crossed my mind previously in jest.
Alas, dear reader, it seems that this is a potential reality. Deep breath...
The headline link on Drudge is to this article from the Wall Street Journal:
Oh you're not fancy like us and don't have a WSJ sub? Don't worry, here are the essential bits:
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.
Quite a vacuum, I might add. Carrying on:
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.
"Younger than Mr. Biden" ROFL 🤣
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."
Y'all remember how the last "change candidate" went?
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. She recently warned of the electoral consequences in the 2022 midterms if the Democratic Party continues to align itself with its progressive wing and urged Democrats to reject far-left positions that isolate key segments of the electorate.
Even Bill Clinton recently set the stage for his wife's potential 2024 candidacy, referring to her in an interview with People magazine as "the most qualified person to run for office in my lifetime, including me," adding that not electing her in 2016 was "one of the most profound mistakes we ever made."
K I'm gonna throw up so let's wrap up this article.
Before I let you go, though, I must remind you that last week Hillary was in the news for reading a portion of the victory speech she had prepared to give in 2016 (LOL, sorry).
Why would she do that all of a sudden?
To a politician like her, every move like that is precisely calculated.
"I've never shared this with anybody. I've never read it out loud. But it helps to encapsulate who I am, what I believe in and what my hopes were for the kind of country that I want for my grandchildren and that I want for the world," Clinton said.
Are we really looking at a Hillary Clinton 2024 presidential campaign?
