Democrat Strategist James Carville Calls on Obama & Bill Clinton to Find Biden Replacement

Veteran Democrat strategist James Carville has called on Barack Obama and Bill Clinton to lead efforts to find President Joe Biden’s replacement.

Carville is one of a growing number of Democrats who have lost faith in Biden’s ability to beat President Donald Trump in November.

Even before the disastrous debate last month, Carville, who led Bill Clinton’s successful 1992 presidential campaign, admitted that he was disappointed that Biden was running for re-election.

Now, Carville is leading the calls for Democrats to find a new candidate to replace Biden on the party’s 2024 ticket.

“I want to see the Democratic Party hold four historic town halls between now and the Democratic National Convention in August — one each in the South, the Northeast, the Midwest, and the West,” Carville wrote in the New York Times.

“We can recruit the two most obvious and qualified people in the world to facilitate substantive discussions: Barack Obama and Bill Clinton.

“They may not represent every faction under our party’s big tent.

“But they care as much about our democracy as our nation’s first president, they understand what it takes to be president, and they know how to win,” he said.

Carville explained further that the two former presidents should consult with the country’s 23 Democrat governors in a town hall selection process.

Carville’s comments came as commentators, lawmakers, and Democrat officials continue to call for Biden to withdraw after his debacle at the presidential debate.

Due to so many House lawmakers calling for the commander-in-chief to step aside, Biden penned a letter on Monday to congressional Democrats urging them to stop questioning whether he should end his re-election bid.

Biden argues they should “move forward as a unified party” in order to defeat President Trump in their 2024 election rematch.

The president sent the letter to congressional Democrats as they returned from the July 4th holiday recess.

Biden reiterated that he’s “firmly committed to staying in this race” and argued that any further questioning of his candidacy “only helps Trump and hurts us.”

Carville slammed Biden’s effort to prove to his Democrat congressional colleagues that he is still a viable candidate.

“Mark my words: Joe Biden is going to be out of the 2024 presidential race,” he said.

“Whether he is ready to admit it or not.

“His pleas on Monday to congressional Democrats for support will not unite the party behind him.”

He went on to say:

“Mr. Biden says he’s staying in the race, but it’s only a matter of time before Democratic pressure and public and private polling lead him to exit the race.”

Carville further claimed that even Vice President Kamala Harris could take down Trump.

“I believe the vice president would be a formidable opponent to Mr. Trump,” Carville said.

“She has spent the last four years crisscrossing the country and the globe, serving the American people.”

“She has a hell of a story — one that more people should know,” he added.

“She stood up for ordinary Americans against big banks.

“She locked up sex predators.

“You want the prosecutor or you want the criminal?

“Not the worst question to put to the American public this November.”

Following Biden’s extremely rough debate performance a week and a half ago in his first face-to-face showdown with Trump, the president has been attempting to prove that he still has the stamina and acuity to handle the toughest and most demanding job in the world.

He’s now trying to prove that he has the fortitude to defeat Trump.

However, his attempts at reassuring Democrats and the American people appear to be backfiring as the gaffes continue.
