(PresidentialHill.com)- Democrat consultant Douglas Schoen is the latest to suggest Hillary Clinton run for president in 2024.
In a July 3 op-ed at The Hill, Schoen wrote that President Biden and Vice President Harris are far too unpopular to win in 2024 and argued that Hillary would be one of the best options to replace them.
Schoen argued that the unpopularity of Biden and Harris, coupled with the lack of a strong Democrat bench has created a “leadership vacuum” in the Democrat Party and only Hillary Clinton can fill that vacuum. He believes Hillary has the experience and political savvy to be a “change candidate.”
Boy, if Hillary is a “change candidate” that isn’t saying much for the Democrats.
Schoen also thinks Hillary is the best person to exploit the Supreme Court overturning Roe v. Wade due to her history of being a “champion of women’s rights.”
People keep talking about Hillary’s history of fighting for women’s rights. But the only example they ever give is a 1995 speech when Hillary read the line, “Women’s rights are human rights.” And, yes, Schoen cites this line in a speech as an example of Hillary’s “experience” fighting for women’s rights.
Schoen also cites as proof of Hillary’s history of fighting for women’s rights the fact that she was the first woman from a major party to receive a Presidential nomination.
He does remember, does he not, that Hillary went on to become the first female nominee to lose.
Schoen also warns that Democrats better prepare for a massive blowout loss in November’s midterm elections which he believes will be larger than either the 1994 or 2010 midterm losses.
Calling the Democrat Party a “slowly sinking ship,” Schoen said the stakes are too high for Democrats not to pull Hillary off the bench if they want any hope of regaining control of Congress and advancing their agenda, including codifying Roe v. Wade into federal law.
Hillary Clinton maintains that she has zero interest in running for president again in 2024.
