Kamala Harris met with Hillary Clinton in November, outside of her Vice Presidential role. The content of that meeting is making headlines nationwide as Kamala, beset by her collapsing office, rising criticism from both parties, and fatally low polling numbers reached out to her elder Democrat mentor, and fellow frustrated Presidential candidate.
Reports from The New York Times have revealed that “Ms. Harris has privately told her allies that the news coverage of her would be different if she were any of her 48 predecessors, whom she has described as all white and male.”
Faced with approval ratings in freefall, a never-ending parade of staff abandoning ship, and the withering torrent of criticism from both parties, Kamala Harris has turned to Hillary Rodham Clinton, former Secretary of State and frustrated Presidential hopeful (who was smashed by Donald Trump) for advice.
Clinton, after her tenure as First Lady to President Bill Clinton in the mid-nineties, served as a US Senator for New York for two terms starting in 2000 until she was tapped for Secretary of State by President Barack Obama. OANN has reported that Harris’ approval rating is sitting at about 28% compared to Biden’s also anemic 38%, meanwhile, Clinton’s favorability rating (approval ratings don’t exist as she hasn’t held the Presidency or Vice Presidency) peaked in 1998 at 67% during her husband’s impeachment and rebounded during her tenure in the Obama State Dept. but since then has plunged to 36% as recently as 2018 and has NEVER recovered according to Gallup.
Clinton’s Counsel Being Sought By Biden & Harris Separately
In Newsweek around the same time, it was widely reported that Joe Biden had enlisted Clinton to mount a defense of his presidency and engage the mainstream media in extolling its virtues with Clinton appearing on MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow and telling her that “a lot of people” didn’t appreciate what Biden had accomplished during his first 12 months in office. She was referring to the $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package signed by the president in March and the recent $1.2 trillion bipartisan infrastructure deal.”
Clinton made news in early December by tearfully sharing parts of her 2016 victory speech. It was truly a first in American history: a defeated candidate giving a victory address even in part. And it appears that her efforts to bolster the Biden-Harris regime have yielded little results. But could Clinton be using Biden and Harris’ appeals for help to flirt with a primary run against them in 2024?
