Kamala Using Biden As ‘Meal Ticket’ To Become President


OPINION: This article contains commentary which may reflect the author's opinion


Failed Presidential candidate,  Vice President Kamala Harris, had a disaster of a Presidential campaign in 2020.  Mostly because she is so unlikeable, but also because she is terrible at campaigning.

The New York Times wrote about Harris’ campaign in the Democrat Primary for POTUS and how miserable she was, reporting, in their article, How Kamala Harris’s Campaign Unraveled, “Ms. Harris is the only 2020 Democrat who has fallen hard out of the top tier of candidates. She has proved to be an uneven campaigner who changes her message and tactics to little effect and has a staff torn into factions.”

So would it surprise anyone if fame-seeking Harris were to try again for a run at the White House after being elevated to Vice President during Joe Biden’s disastrous campaign?

The media is reporting that is precisely what is on her mind to do:

“During an interview on Fox & Friends, former Democratic state Senator Gloria Romero argued that Harris is “using” President Joe Biden as a “meal ticket” to run for president in 2024,” Martin Walsh reported.

“Let’s face it, Joe Biden is Kamala Harris’ meal ticket to potentially the presidency,” said Romero, the former California Senate majority leader from 2005 to 2008.

“She needs to go ahead and to keep putting out there for the public and especially potential other opponents that Joe Biden is running, because the longer that people can believe that myth, the greater the opportunity is that no other contender like [Gavin] Newsom or [Pete] Buttigieg or even Hillary Clinton might step into the fray,” Romero added.

Harris didn’t do herself any favors back in June when she seemingly walked back a remark indicating Biden would run for re-election in 2024.

“The president intends to run and if he does, I will be his ticket-mate,” Harris told reporters. “We will run together.”

According to a pool report, “The White House said [Harris] wanted to clarify comments she made on CNN a few days ago.”

“During an appearance on CNN with host Dana Bash, Harris said emphatically that she and Biden are a package deal for Democrats going into 2024,” Walsh reported for Conservative Brief.

“Joe Biden is running for re-election and I will be his ticket-mate,” Harris told host Dana Bash.

For his part, rumors are flying that Biden’s administration has least looked into the idea of replacing Harris as vice president.

According to CNN, White House insiders are painting a picture of total chaos and discontent between Biden and Harris.

“Kamala Harris is a leader but is not being put in positions to lead,” a top Democratic donor said. “[Biden] should be putting her in positions to succeed, as opposed to putting weights on her. If you did give her the ability to step up and help her lead, it would strengthen you and strengthen the party.”

The CNN report also claims there’s a rumor that Biden has considered booting Harris from the vice presidency altogether and nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy.

“That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it,” CNN reported.

The rumor is now floating around the corporate media as well.

In a scathing piece from New York Magazine, titled, “There Has to Be a Backup Plan. There’s a Backup Plan, Right? Inside the 2024 soul-searching that’s happening in every corner of the Democratic Party,” author Gabriel Debenedetti discusses how Democrats are facing a reckoning.

Debenedetti notes how there seems to be a major divide between Biden and his allies on one side and Harris and her loyalists on the other.

With the MAGA movement growing ambivalence about Biden’s age and political standing is fueling skepticism just as the image of his understudy, Vice-President Kamala Harris, dips even further than his.

The most recent analysis from the Los Angeles Times has her net approval rating at negative 11. The result is a bizarre disconnect within the Democratic Party, with two factions talking past each other.

One group consists of Biden and his loyalists, who are convinced that while the ticket’s numbers are undeniably bleak, they’re historically unsurprising for a president and VP facing their first midterm and will surely bounce back. The second group comprises a broad swath of the Democratic elite and rank and file alike, who suspect that vectors of age, succession, and strategy have created a dynamic with no obvious parallel in recent history.

Debenedetti notes that Harris expects Biden to run again in 2024, but if he did step aside, would he endorse Harris as the Democratic nominee?

The New York Times slammed Harris so badly in 2020 that if any Democrat remembers how horrible Harris is, they know they would have the lesser of two evils to choose from- Biden or Harris.

The New York Times described how much of a disaster Harris is:

“Many of her own advisers were pointing a finger directly at Ms. Harris. In interviews several of them criticized her for going on the offensive against rivals, only to retreat, and for not firmly choosing a side in the party’s ideological feud between liberals and moderates. She also created an organization with a campaign chairwoman, Maya Harris, who goes unchallenged in part because she is Ms. Harris’s sister, and a manager, Mr. Rodriguez, who could not be replaced without likely triggering the resignations of the candidate’s consulting team. Even at this late date, aides said it’s unclear who’s in charge of the campaign.”

How has she changed since she became Vice-POTUS?
