(Patriot Insider) – If you thought that Joe Biden running for a second term as president was the scariest bit of news you could possibly hear in regards to the upcoming 2024 presidential election, think again. There are a few Democrats out there who are saying that former first lady Michelle Obama has the “it” factor that might be able to defeat former President Donald Trump should he win the GOP nomination. That is what the fabric of nightmares are made of, ladies and gentlemen.
While leaders within the Democratic Party are, publicly speaking, throwing their support behind the current president as their man for the upcoming election, behind the scenes, many within the party are still thinking over who might be the best choice to be their dear leader and stand a good chance at beating Trump.
Fox News reveals, “Former White House and Pentagon official Douglas MacKinnon said if not Biden or Vice President Kamala Harris, Democrats could look to a past superstar to create a more viable ticket. Among the names of possible contenders, former first lady Michelle Obama’s name was floated ahead of the last Democratic presidential primary, although she has repeatedly denied any interest in seeking office. At 59, and with her ‘it’ factor (as McKinnon labels it) she could emerge as a top candidate and Democrats could look to push her to run. She has previously denied any desire to seek candidacy.”
Brianna Herlihy and Lawrence Richard, writing for the news outlet, went on to write, “According to a recent Politico article, Biden faces doubt from some ‘high-level Democrats’ who may only support the president because they fear what a Biden-less ticket could look like.”
“High-level Democrats are rallying to President Biden’s reelection, not because they think it’s in the best interest of the country to have an 82-year-old start a second term but because they fear the potential alternative: the nomination of Kamala Harris and election of Donald Trump,” the report stated.
Back in 2020, Biden and his pick for vice president, Kamala Harris managed to defeat Trump, thanks in large part to massive, widespread voter fraud and other bits of shenanigans that tipped the scales in their favor. However, here we are three years later, and Biden has an approval rating that is in the 40s and has produced a record number of gaffes and incidents that have no doubt caused brain busting headaches for the White House press team.
“According to the Politico report, a senator at the National Governor’s Association meeting in February went as far as to question whether Biden had the stamina for the presidential campaign season. Biden won his initial election during the travel-restricted COVID pandemic and spent much of his time campaigning from his basement,” Herlihy noted.
During the NGA winter meeting, a congressman came out and remarked that “Harris wasn’t an option,” as per a report from Politico, Fox News said.
“Other candidates could include those who previously won the Democratic presidential nomination, such as Hillary Clinton, John Kerry or Al Gore (setting up another rematch between Clinton and Trump),” the article continued. “The hypothetical candidates, however, fail to address the concerns of some voters who want a younger president as Clinton is 75, Kerry is 79 and Gore is 74.”
Some other folks who are potentially in the mix include Beto O’Rourke, 50, Gavin Newsom, 55, and Gretchen Whitmer, 51.
As of now, the only challenger to officially step up against Biden is self-help guru and bestselling author, Marianne Williamson, who announced her campaign over the weekend.
“I have run for president before. I am not naïve about these forces which have no intention of allowing anyone into this conversation who does not align with their predetermined agenda,” Williamson asserted. “I understand that, in their mind, only people who previously have been entrenched in the car that brought us into this ditch can possibly be considered qualified to bring us out of it.”
