While the primaries for an incumbent president are often little more than ceremonial, if President Joe Biden decides to run for another term in 2024 it could be anything but ho-hum.

On Sunday morning, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a favorite in many Democratic circles, refused to say that she would support Biden if he did choose to run for another term.

Asked by CNN State of the Union anchor Dana Bash if she’d endorse Biden for a 2024 run, AOC responded, “We’ll cross that bridge when we get there.”

“But I think if the president has a vision, and that’s something certainly we’re all willing to entertain and examine when the time comes,” she continued.

Bash pressed Ocasio-Cortez on her declining to endorse the sitting president of her own party.

“That’s not a yes,” Bash noted.

“I think we should endorse when we get to it, but I believe that the president’s been doing a very good job so far,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “And, should he run again, I think that we’ll take a look at it.”

Speculation over whether President Biden will run again has been swirling for some time, not only because of his age (he would be in his upper 80s by the time a second term is over), but also because of his disastrous – and still sinking – approval ratings.

The RealClearPolitics presidential approval tracker had Biden’s favorability rating on Sunday at just 39.4%, compared to 54.9% of people who disapprove of him.

  1. Some reasonable Republicans and conservatives (yes, there are some) would seriously consider voting for Biden in 2024 if the Republican candidate is a pro-Trumper and Biden has drawn a bright line separating himself from left-wing Democrats. So, who’s beginning and who’s ending are referenced in the headline?

  2. Candidly, most Dems would prefer Biden not run in 2024 but at least for now, there is a void of non-geriatric Blue options

  3. If she supports a primary challenge, Biden (or his replacement) can appear super-moderate in rejecting the WOKE candidate. IF there is a WOKE third party, especially if Trump (or a Trump-like “Republican”) is running for the Republicans, a moderate Democrat could even build a fusion ticket (perhaps with a traditional Republican for Vice-President, such as Liz Cheney).

  4. I don’t understand why she didn’t say she would endorse him. She lies all the time so it doesn’t really make a difference what comes out of her mouth

  5. Sleepy Joe is obviously a puppet. His Presidency has shown that the Democrats would be happy with anyone as President as long as there are people behind the scenes that control him and make him support their ridiculous agenda.
