It’s been a few years since we’ve seen Bernie Sanders on the campaign trail, but it looks like maybe he might be gearing up for another run. His most trusted adviser had some predictable words for the 80 year old senator, who seems to be sharper than Biden and Harris combined.
Washington Examiner Broke that, according to Sanders’s longtime advisor Faiz Shakir, Sanders is considering a run for president in 2024.
CBS News reported that Sander’s health and whether Joe Biden seeks reelection in 2024 could influence a run in 2024.
Although Sanders, 81, does not appear to have discussed the subject personally with Shakir, the longtime adviser is close enough to the Vermont senator that his statement may be a good indication that Sanders will run for president for the third time after two close losses in the Democratic primary.
Here is what the long-time adviser had to say on CBS in his own words.
While third-person guesses may be interesting, let’s turn to Bernie himself, being asked before the mid-election if he would consider running again in 2024.024.
Well there you have it. Pretty darn close on the adviser.
Let’s give credit where credit is due, Bernie Sanders is certainly more alive than Biden, but that does not mean he wouldn’t be just as radical. Americans are being embarrassed every second Biden is in office. If each American got a dollar for how many times Biden embarrassed us on national tv, we could put that money towards our $31 trillion deficit.
Bloomberg reported that White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain said President Joe Biden will announce his re-election plans after Christmas and New Year’s.
The Democratic Party fared much better than expected in the midterm elections, and Biden has declared his intention to run again. Although he has yet to make a formal decision, he has said that he will do so early next year.
In an interview with the Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council on Monday, Klain said, “The president will make that decision.” My expectation is that it will happen after the holiday.
Regardless, we all know how good politicians are with words. With the exception of Biden of course, but until an announcement is made, nothing is set in stone, which prolongs Bernie’s decision.
Bernie Sanders may go down in history as that cranky old grandpa who would not ever admit defeat without at least attempting a mediocre fight. He’s certainly tenacious and if there’s the slightest chance of a shot, he’ll take it. We saw this a few years ago when he came this close to becoming the Democratic Party candidate before being defeated by the suddenly popular Joe Biden, whose dementia seemed to have no negative effect on his campaign. As politics become more progressive, one wonders if Bernie will get yet another shot of a lifetime, as in many ways he embodies progressive ideals that many within the Democrat party are pushing for. He whoever controls Biden to thank for that.
