‘Scary list’: If Biden doesn’t run in ’24, here are top 7 Dems most likely to compete to replace him

After President Biden threw into question this week whether he would be seeking reelection, stating it “remains to be seen,” Democrats and Republicans alike have been playing the “Who will run” game, and if the list of seven Dems “most likely to run” The Hill has compiled is correct, the left’s prospects are, at best, dismal, and at worst, a potential nightmare for the nation.

So far, no one at the level of say, Governor Ron DeSantis, is waiting in the wings should their “Big Guy” bow out.

“There’s not one clear candidate and there’s not a rising star,” one top Democratic donor told The Hill.

And when you look at the group that is inspiring “the most confidence” in DNC circles, the lack of clarity is easy to understand.

While Dems are acknowledging “privately” that Vice President Kamala Harris “isn’t seen as a definitive leading contender,” she still tops The Hill’s list.

Harris was eliminated from the 2020 race by Democratic voters almost as soon as she announced she was running.

The former senator from California has been mercilessly mocked since ascending to the vice presidency for a never-ending string of “word salad” speeches and fleeing staffers, but The Hill insists “she has settled into the role.”

“She has also made women’s rights one of her issues out on the trail, an issue that can only help her political prospects with the Democratic base as the Supreme Court decision overturning the Roe v. Wade ruling on abortion rights continues to reverberate,” The Hill contends.

Next up is Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, whose most notable accomplishment since taking office was spent on paternity leave.

The best thing The Hill could say about Mayor Pete is, “Buttigieg’s stature with voters could have taken a beating with the railway strike earlier this month but after Biden’s late-hour intervention, it never amounted, solidifying his standing with Democratic voters.”

Then there’s Michigan Governor Gretchen Whitmer, whose draconian lockdown measures during the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic and dramatic “almost kidnapping” by an FBI-infiltrated group have called into question not only her credibility, but that of the entire Justice Department.

The Hill cites Whitmer’s stance on abortion as a strength, but the quote from the governor makes it sounds like she is willing to ignore the will of the people she represents in favor of her own agenda.

“The only reason Michigan continues to be pro-choice state is because of my veto and my lawsuit,” CNN reported her saying, this being in reference to a lawsuit Whitmer filed to prevent a Michigan abortion ban from becoming a reality.

Other than that, the news source doesn’t mention what she has accomplished that would prepare her to run the country.

The second governor to make the shortlist is the nearly-recalled California Governor Gavin Newsom, who has ignored the affordable housing crisis, the border crisis, the homeless crisis, and the energy crisis in his own state in favor of posting pro-abortion billboards in other states.

The progressive leader with a penchant for breaking his own rules shocked the nation when he had the audacity to quote Jesus Christ in his invitation to pregnant women in conservative states to come to the Golden State to kill their babies.

Of Newsom’s chances should he run, one strategist told The Hill, “He has still got a lot to prove but he has certainly made Democrats pay attention.”

The final three on the outlet’s list are almost impossible for most sane Americans to even contemplate: Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), and everybody’s favorite victim, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

According to The Hill, Warren “consistently punts” when asked if she’ll put her beer down and throw her hat into the ring; Sanders “would be nearing 90 by the end of his term”; and “most strategists doubt that the congresswoman from New York will run for president just yet.”

And there you have it: What a leading paper believes are the seven best hopes for the Democratic party should Joe Biden decide he’d rather eat ice cream than continue … you know… “the thing.”

As one user on Twitter put it, it’s a “scary list of extreme left wingers.”

God help us all.
