Hillary Clinton To Take Larger Role In Biden’s Re-Election Campaign — And Even Democrats Are Laughing


 Former Secretary of State and failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is reportedly gearing up to take on a larger role inPresident Joe Biden’s re-election campaign — a decision that is receiving a fair amount of mockery from both sides of the political aisle.

Over the last month, although she is not officially a member of Biden’s campaign team, she has positioned herself as one of his most visible and influential surrogates. Clinton hosted a big-ticket fundraiser in late November, benefitting his re-election war chest — and two weeks earlier, she published an op-ed in The Atlantic defending the Biden administration’s response to the ongoing war between Israel and the terror group Hamas.

As NBC noted in an article published Monday, it is certainly possible that Clinton could help Biden on some issues:

Clinton is popular with women and key parts of the Democratic base and remains a fundraising draw who can help ensure Biden has the money to get his message out. There is still a two-for-the-price-of-one theme when it comes to her family: Husband Bill Clinton made a cameo at the fundraising event at their Washington home.

But not everyone was convinced that Clinton, who lost to former President Donald Trump in 2016, was the best person to help Biden defeat Trump — who still has a formidable lead on the rest of the Republican primary field — in 2024.

“Excellent! Bring in the woman incredibly disliked in swing states to campaign for Biden,” Doug Powers said in a post on X.

“It’s entirely possible that the Democratic Party actively does NOT want to win the presidency in 2024,” Margot Cleveland added.

“She couldn’t even win her own election how is she gonna win his for him?” Hannah Cox asked.

Even some on the hard left were unimpressed with the possibility that they’d be seeing more of Clinton.

Ex-MSNBC host Mehdi Hasan said, “Ah yes, when you’re a Democrat struggling to beat Donald Trump, you call for help from… *checks notes*… the last Democrat to lose to Donald Trump.”

Marianne Williamson, who is running against Biden in the Democratic primary, saw the opportunity to plug her own run: “We can go forward, not backwards.”
