Ex-Clinton Advisor: ‘Dead Joe Biden’ Is Better Than Kamala Harris

As panic over the crisis regarding President Joe Biden’s fitness for office continues to deepen among the Democratic Party elite, many are now realizing that the remedy is worse than the disease.

In the wake of Biden’s disastrous debate performance last week, a growing number of Democrats is calling for Biden to step down.

Some are even calling for Vice President Kamala Harris to invoke the 25th Amendment and remove Biden.

However, doing so will mean Harris will take his place.

High-profile Democrat donors are also skeptical of Harris’s appeal should she be tapped to replace Biden at the top of the ticket.

According to a Semafor report, top Democrat consultants spoke with top donors for the Democratic Party about the possibility of Harris taking on the role.

Former Bill Clinton aide James Carville spoke to dozens of donors to the Democratic Super PAC American Bridge.

The organization is a large source for opposition research and campaigns against President Donald Trump.

“Seventy-two percent of people want something different,” said Carville, a veteran Democrat strategist.

“Why not give it to them?”

Carville added that donors should stop donating to campaigns that do not take their side.

“What I would say is, if we don’t do something about this, I’m going to put you on call block on my cellphone,” he said to donors.

Paul Begala, another former Clinton advisor, acknowledged that swing voters are already well aware of Biden’s degraded mental and physical state.

However, he notes that those voters may be less inclined to vote for Harris, who is unpopular.

“Kamala Harris is more threatening to those swing voters than a dead Joe Biden or a comatose Joe Biden,” Begala said.

“So if Joe has to go, it’s gonna be Kamala and if it’s Kamala, it’s gonna be harder.”

Still, some Democrats view Harris as someone who can pull together parts of the Democratic coalition.

Some believe she can appeal to black women and progressives, who are currently lacking in enthusiasm surrounding Biden’s candidacy.

A recent CNN poll found that 22% of voters currently have no opinion of the vice president.

Nevertheless, some Democrat strategists believe this lack of opinion could give Harris room to grow within the party and with independence.

Carville acknowledged the timing of Biden’s bad debate performance, just five months from the election.

He said it gives Democrats time to rethink and regroup before November.

“Maybe we look back on this thing and say, ‘This is the best thing that ever happened to us,’” he said.

“If this would have happened to us on Oct. 5, we’d be more than bruised, screwed, and tattooed.

“Maybe this will set it into motion something different.

“And maybe the people on the Zoom call or maybe we’ll reconvene [on] Nov. 10 and say, ‘God damn man, this thing came together a lot better than we ever thought we would back on July 2,’” Carville said.
