The possibility of Vice President Kamala Harris becoming a hindrance for the Democratic Party in the 2024 election has been a topic of recent discussions among Democrats and the media. This has sparked a delicate conversation about the best way to remove her from consideration as either President Biden’s running mate or a potential nominee for the presidency.
Fox News’ White House correspondent, Kevin Corke, commented that Vice President Harris has a noticeably “awkward” way of speaking which is unlikely to improve in the next two years. This was in response to a recent article that highlighted the growing concerns of Democrats regarding the Vice President’s future political prospects. The Washington Post published quotes and evaluations from a dozen Democratic leaders from various states, both on and off the record.
The article suggested that Harris might not have the political abilities needed to win the presidency, and attributed this to the possible influence of racism and sexism. It also stated that she may struggle to win the Democratic primary and the general election in 2024 if President Biden does not run for re-election. Corke opined that if a candidate is charismatic and has a clear vision for their leadership and platform, they can inspire people to support them.
The New York Times reported that even Harris’s allies are growing impatient for her to clarify her role as Vice President ahead of the upcoming election cycle. Despite her supporters highlighting her accomplishments, many Democrats interviewed expressed doubt that she could win the presidency in 2024. Some stated that the party’s biggest challenge will be finding a way to remove her from contention without inciting anger from important Democratic groups.
The delicate discussion surrounding Vice President Harris’ political prospects has been prompted by her poor communication skills and lack of political skills. The growing chatter among Democrats and the mainstream media has highlighted how she may become a political liability for the party ahead of the 2024 election. Her “awkward” speaking style and inability to define her vice presidency has caused many Democrats to question her ability to win a national race. As a result, the party must now find a way to remove her from consideration without offending key Democratic constituencies.
