Even the Biden foot washers at the New York Times can’t make a case for his vice president, Kamala Harris. In a brutal profile, the Times anonymously quoted multiple Democrats who said she has no shot at the party nomination in 2024 and blasted her for failing to find a niche within the Biden administration.
“Even some Democrats whom her own advisers referred reporters to for supportive quotes confided privately that they had lost hope in her,” the profile says, claiming that a “panic” has set in among some Democrats who are worried about the elderly Biden’s ability to run again – and who could replace him atop the Democratic ticket.
“Through much of the fall, a quiet panic set in among key Democrats about what would happen if President Biden opted not to run for a second term. Most Democrats interviewed, who insisted on anonymity to avoid alienating the White House, said flatly that they did not think Ms. Harris could win the presidency in 2024. Some said the party’s biggest challenge would be finding a way to sideline her without inflaming key Democratic constituencies that would take offense,” the Times wrote.
“I can’t think of one thing she’s done except stay out of the way and stand beside him at certain ceremonies,” Democratic Party fundraiser John Morgan said.
