Things are going so poorly for the Democrats lately.
Roe was overturned, gun rights expanded, religious liberty protected, the economy is in shambles, the borders are wide open, and their president, Joe Biden, just fell off his bike.
So it should be no surprise that the Dems are looking to change candidates midstream, ditching Biden for someone more likable.
Or, Hillary Clinton.
Yes, CNN's own Chris Cillizza is telling us that lefties, and some on the right, are deciding that it's time to go back to the same old failed candidate once again and resurrect Hillary Clinton.
No, this is not a joke.
In the immediate aftermath of the Supreme Court's monumental decision to overturn Roe v Wade, conservative writer John Ellis took to the internet to make a provocative case: It was time for Hillary Clinton to make a(nother) political comeback.
"Now is her moment," he wrote. "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' argument is centered on the ideas that 1) President Joe Biden, who will be 82 shortly after the 2024 election, is simply too old to run again (Ellis is far from the only person making that case) and 2) The Democratic bench is not terribly strong.
The Dems are so desperate, and Biden is failing so badly, that they think it's reasonable for the candidate who lost to Donald Trump to run again.
Can you tell they're panicking?
He's not the only person eyeing a Clinton re-emergence.
Writing in The Hill newspaper, Democratic pundit Juan Williams makes the case that Clinton should become a major figure on the campaign trail this year.
"Clinton is exactly the right person to put steel in the Democrats' spine and bring attention to the reality that ‘ultra-MAGA' Republicans, as President Biden calls them, are tearing apart the nation," Williams writes, adding: "Keep talking and talk louder, Hillary!"
So, just how far-fetched is a Clinton candidacy?
Now that abortion has been hit with a major defeat, it's time to run a female for President.
No, not you Kamala. You're the only woman less likable than Hillary.
While I find it utterly implausible that Clinton would run against Biden in a primary in 2024, I also think that an open nomination – if Biden takes a pass on running – would be something that would be hard for Clinton to not at least look at. That's not to say she would run. It's only to say that her name would get bandied about if the seat was open. That's a lock.
Then there's the Roe decision to consider. Clinton's comments about not running again came before Roe was decided. As someone who has fought for women's rights throughout her career as first lady, US senator and secretary of state, might the Supreme Court's ruling have changed her calculus somewhat as she looks to her own future?
Again, the chances are very slim that Clinton runs again. But they aren't zero.
I just have to say, I am really looking forward to the potential Hillary-Trump rematch.
That would be truly amazing.
