Biden’s successor’s murky future

The White House continues to look for a way out of the presidential administration’s hardware crisis

Biden's successor's murky future
Biden’s approval ratings are at their lowest, Democrats in Congress are already queuing up to get out, fearful of the results of the 2022 election, and the prospects for the next presidential race are still unclear.

The cabinet reshuffle in the Harris team continues amid a split in the presidential tandem. The victims of the Biden-Harris wedge have already included the vice president’s cabinet communications director and the White House communications director for the entire White House. And now they have been joined by the Vice President’s top adviser, Simone Sanders, who has worked closely with Harris for three years.

It is unlikely that anything will change for the better in Harris’ office with its “toxic” atmosphere of mistrust and negligence. This cannot fail to please another participant in the “war of the towers”, Transport Minister Buttigieg, who is now being touted as Biden’s alternative successor.

Meanwhile, more and more White House staffers are bluntly accusing Buttigieg of disrespecting minorities – for daring to hope to get into the Oval Office bypassing a black woman. Biden, who, according to the left wing of his administration, is both framing Harris and tellingly refusing to defend her against criticism from the American public.

Biden himself is keeping up the suspense by hinting that he may himself be nominated in 2024 – although he will be 82 by then. At the same time, the Bidenists cleverly plant rumors in the media that Harris may be bailed out by the Supreme Court – thus effectively getting rid of her.

It seems like a good scenario: with the current rating of 28% Harris is not likely to win the elections of 2024. Even among Democrats, only 13% are willing to support her in the primaries. And on the Supreme Court, she could replace one of the older Democrats – say, the 83-year-old Stephen Breyer.

However, here too, a curiosity could happen: then Harris would become the first Supreme Court justice in US history to fail a legal exam. However, that hasn’t stopped her from already working as a prosecutor in San Francisco and then all of California. But it also explains episodes from her past – for example, when she kept people in jail for years while hiding evidence of their innocence from the court.

One thing is clear: All these backroom games risk making the Democratic Party even more vulnerable in the upcoming congressional elections: Democrats are already resigning en masse, without waiting for Election Day or the outcome of the “war of the towers” in the White House.
