Is America ready to “feel the Bern” in 2024? Maybe so, considering that Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) is leaning towards another presidential run, as long as the current occupant of the White House (or his handlers) decides one term is enough.
Thanks to a recently leaked memo sent by a high-level campaign advisor of Sanders to his throng of socialist supporters, we now know that Bernie is indeed considering throwing his hat in the ring for the Democrats’ 2024 presidential primary contest.
Per the memo, leaked by The Washington Post, “In the event of an open 2024 Democratic presidential primary, Sen. Sanders has not ruled out another run for president, so we advise that you answer any questions about 2024 with that in mind.”
The memo also noted, in an obvious swipe at President Biden, that “Sen. Sanders is putting forward an extremely popular vision for the Democratic Party that will win back critical support that we have lost.”
It continued, “In fact, Bernie wants to build power for the working class and take on the corporate socialism that our political system currently favors.”
Given Biden’s pitiful poll numbers (and his declining mental state), it is far from a given that he will run for re-election in 2024. And, given the fact that Vice President Kamala Harris is even less popular than her boss, it seems more than far-fetched that she would even entertain a run for the Oval Office.
So, it appears that there could be an opening for another run by Bernie, who is not even a member of the Democratic Party. Unless, of course, Bernie’s arch nemesis, Hillary Clinton, decides to run yet again for the highest office in the land.
Either way, it appears that come 2024, there is more than likely going to be some drama for the Democrats. Get your popcorn ready, this should be quite entertaining!
