Biden is historically unpopular. With only 36% of his own party saying that they want him to run again, you would think that the line to primary him would begin out the door.
And some Dems, including Buttigieg, within his own administration, along with Cory Booker and Elizabeth Warren, are sending clear signals that they want a shot at 2024.
But no one’s willing to come out and say it.
“He’s running, I expect to support him and help him get re-elected,” Ms. Warren said. “I’m sticking with that story.”
The only reason Bernie Sanders became a phenom was that Warren was too chicken to primary Hillary Clinton. Leftists and assorted grifters instead congealed around a senile old Commie who was willing to stand up to Hillary and the rest is history.
Ever since then Liz hasn’t grown a backbone. She wouldn’t take on Hillary, now she’s too cautious to take on Biden. Even when he’s at 36%.
So much for “she persisted”.
If you can’t announce that you’re primarying a wildly unpopular incumbent who’s at 36% among Dems, where’s your courage?
Ms. Klobuchar, who told influential Democrats last year that she’d be interested in running again, said of Mr. Biden: “He has said he’s going to run again, and I take him at his word, and that’s all I’m going to say.”
It’s like they all had their statements written by the same press shop.
What both of those statements communicate is that Warren and Klobuchar, two of the most unlikable candidates in the race last time around, hope that someone else does the dirty work for them and kicks Biden to the curb.
And then they can tout their “leadership” and their “courage”.
