“The main obstacle holding back Democrats is that they have the Kamala Harris problem, which means that if Democrats sideline Biden, the natural person who would normally be their nominee will be the vice president of the same sitting president.” “But I don’t think that means the vice president will be able to carry out that job effectively,” Ramaswamy said. “The year she ran, she missed the Iowa caucuses, which was understandable, even within her own party, let alone issues that were widely popular in the country.”

“If race and gender are criteria for choosing people for jobs, and your party identity is tied to the temple of identity politics, then you risk looking hypocritical by not supporting Biden after not supporting her.” And I think so.” Obama offers them a convenient way out of that problem, someone who will check the boxes they need to check according to their own ideology, while at the same time They will choose an alternative to Biden that they will likely consider more electorally preferable. “It’s becoming increasingly likely that Biden will not be the nominee, and I don’t think we should be surprised to see someone like Michelle Obama take on the role of nominee,” Ramaswamy said.

After the special counsel’s report, Biden lashed out at reporters who asked him about age concerns, saying, “That’s your decision!”

Mr. Hur, who was appointed by Attorney General Merrick Garland to investigate Mr. Biden’s handling of classified documents, spoke about Mr. Biden’s previous administration and the death of his son Beau in 2015. He revealed that he had vague memories.

“In interviews with our office, Mr. Biden’s memory was even worse,” the report said. “He doesn’t remember when he was vice president, and he forgets the first day of the interview at the end of his term (“If it was 2013, when did you stop being vice president?”) and the interview I forgot about it on the second day. when his term began (“2009, Will I Still be Vice President?”).


“Even after several years, he didn’t remember. When my son Beau passed away.” the report continued. “And his memory was hazy when describing the Afghanistan debate, which was once so important to him. Among other things, he mistakenly said he had a ‘difference of opinion’ with General Carl Eikenberry. In fact, Mr. Eikenberry was an ally that Mr. Biden cited positively in his Thanksgiving memo to President Obama.

These revelations, along with a string of recent gaffes, continue to fuel concerns among some voters about the aging of Biden, the oldest president in U.S. history. Former President Trump, who is likely to be his opponent in 2024, will turn 78 in June.
