Failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton will reportedly reenter the political sphere by speaking at the New York state Democrat Convention in late February.
A source told CNBC Hillary’s popularity is greater than President Biden’s, and suggested that speaking at the event will be useful to her, as it puts her in the spotlight.
“She’s beloved by the mainstream members of the Democratic Party and her popularity is likely higher than that of President Biden. It’s good for her because it keeps her relevant and her appearance is likely meant to galvanize the party and the audience,” the source said.
The establishment media seem to be doing their best to draw Hillary into the 2024 presidential race. “What’s behind the Hillary Clinton ’24 talk,” the title of a January CNN opinion piece read. Schoen Cooperman, former pollster for Bill Clinton, and Andrew Stein, a former New York City Council member, wrote in the Wall Street Journal that Hillary is the Democrats’ “best option” to defeat the Republican nominee for president in 2024.
