Is Hillary Clinton planning to run for president in 2024? Some recent remarks by the former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic nominee have raised eyebrows among voters who see her as a potential threat to Joe Biden’s re-election prospects.
It is likely that former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will never retire from politics. Taking on her arch nemesis, former President Donald Trump, the former Secretary of State dipped her toe into the 2024 presidential race again this week.
As she did in 2016, she predicted that Trump would not be elected president again and that President Biden would win no matter who the Republican nominee is.
While giving herself some props, she even dismissed Joe Biden’s age, which would be 82 if he were reelected.
Whether or not Hillary Clinton is actually planning a political comeback, her recent remarks have exposed the fault lines within the Democratic Party and raised some uncomfortable questions about its future direction. On one hand, Clinton knows how to mobilize the Democrat base and appeal to its voters. On the other hand, Clinton is also a divisive figure who has faced numerous controversies and scandals, both personal and political, that could hurt her own chances and those of her party. In any case, the fact that Clinton is still in the national spotlight and still has a loyal following among Democrats and progressives indicates that her desire to be president may be far from over.
