Vice President Kamala Harris, a failed presidential candidate in 2020, ran a terrible campaign. primarily because of how dislikeable she is, but partly because she does a lousy job of campaigning.
The New York Times reported in their story, How Kamala Harris’s Campaign Unraveled, regarding Harris’ dismal presidential campaign in the Democratic Primary, saying, “Ms. Harris is the only 2020 Democrat who has fallen hard out of the top tier of candidates. She has proved to be an uneven campaigner who changes her message and tactics to little effect and has a staff torn into factions.”
So, would it surprise anyone if Harris, who is wanting fame, decided to make another bid for the White House after being promoted to Vice President during Joe Biden’s unsuccessful campaign?
According to the media, she is planning to do just that:
“During an interview on Fox & Friends, former Democratic state Senator Gloria Romero argued that Harris is “using” President Joe Biden as a “meal ticket” to run for president in 2024,” according to Martin Walsh.
The former California Senate majority leader from 2005 to 2008, Romero, asserted that “Let’s face it, Joe Biden is Kamala Harris’ meal ticket to potentially the presidenc.”
“She needs to go ahead and to keep putting out there for the public and especially potential other opponents that Joe Biden is running, because the longer that people can believe that myth, the greater the opportunity is that no other contender like [Gavin] Newsom or [Pete] Buttigieg or even Hillary Clinton might step into the fray,” Romero continued.
Harris didn’t help herself when she appeared to retract a statement indicating Biden would seek reelection in 2024 back in June.
According to Harris, “The president intends to run and if he does, I will be his ticket-mate. We will run together.”
“The White House said [Harris] wanted to clarify comments she made on CNN a few days ago.” according to a pool report.
Conservative Brief quoted “During an appearance on CNN with host Dana Bash, Harris said emphatically that she and Biden are a package deal for Democrats going into 2024,” during an appearance on CNN with host Dana Bash.
Harris announced to anchor Dana Bash,“Joe Biden is running for re-election and I will be his ticket-mate.”
As for Biden, there are allegations circulating that his administration has at the very least considered the possibility of replacing Harris as vice president.
White House insiders, according to CNN, are describing complete anarchy and unhappiness between Biden and Harris.
A major Democratic contributor commented, “Kamala Harris is a leader but is not being put in positions to lead.“[Biden] should be putting her in positions to succeed, as opposed to putting weights on her. If you did give her the ability to step up and help her lead, it would strengthen you and strengthen the party.”
Additionally, according to the CNN article, there is a rumor that Biden has considering removing Harris from her position as vice president entirely and nominating her to fill a vacancy on the Supreme Court.
“That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it,” CNN claimed.
The corporate media is now spreading the rumor as well.
“There Has to Be a Backup Plan. There’s a Backup Plan, Right? Inside the 2024 soul-searching that’s happening in every corner of the Democratic Party,”according to a blistering piece from New York Magazine with the title.
Debenedetti observes that there appears to be a sharp division between Harris and her supporters and Biden and his supporters on one side.
The MAGA movement’s growing ambivalence about Biden’s age and political status is feeding doubt, and vice president Kamala Harris’s image is dipping even lower than his as a result.
Her net approval rating is currently at a negative 11, according to the Los Angeles Times’ most recent analysis. As a result, there is an odd communication breakdown between the two sections of the Democratic Party.
One group is made up of Biden and his supporters who believe that while the ticket’s statistics are obviously dismal, they are historically expected for a president and vice president facing their first midterm election and will undoubtedly improve. The second group is made up of a sizable portion of the Democratic elite as well as the rank and file. They believe that factors such as age, succession, and strategy have produced a dynamic that has no evident precedent in recent memory.
Debenedetti points out that Harris anticipates Biden to run again in 2024, but asks if he would support Harris as the Democratic nominee if he decided to retire.
The New York Times attacked Harris so harshly in 2020 that any Democrat who recalls how awful Harris is knows they would have to choose between Biden or Harris as the lesser of two evils.
The New York Times regarded Harris as a complete failure:
“Many of her own advisers were pointing a finger directly at Ms. Harris. In interviews several of them criticized her for going on the offensive against rivals, only to retreat, and for not firmly choosing a side in the party’s ideological feud between liberals and moderates. She also created an organization with a campaign chairwoman, Maya Harris, who goes unchallenged in part because she is Ms. Harris’s sister, and a manager, Mr. Rodriguez, who could not be replaced without likely triggering the resignations of the candidate’s consulting team. Even at this late date, aides said it’s unclear who’s in charge of the campaign.”
How has she changed since she became Vice-POTUS?
