Democrats Tell Biden To Resign?


Things aren’t looking good for the Democrats right now.

Veteran Democratic strategist James Carville has expressed his concerns about President Biden seeking re-election, fearing that young voters might feel alienated and choose to sit out the upcoming November election as a result.

Speaking on WABC radio’s “The Cats Roundtable” with John Catsimatidis, Carville, who was instrumental in Bill Clinton’s 1992 presidential victory, candidly shared his reservations. “It’s not the choice I was hoping for,” he admitted. “I had hoped President Biden would decide against running for re-election, but here we are with him and Trump as the main contenders.”

Carville highlighted that the Democratic Party has a wealth of younger leaders who might better resonate with the current political climate than the 81-year-old Biden. He mentioned notable figures such as Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear, Pennsylvania Governor Josh Shapiro, Maryland Governor Wes Moore, and House Democratic Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries from Brooklyn. “There’s an abundance of talent within the Democratic Party,” Carville remarked, “They may not be Bill Clinton, but there are many capable and dynamic individuals.”


He specifically praised Beshear, a personal friend, for his impressive electoral success in a typically Republican state. “Andy managed to win by 5 or 6 points in a state where Democrats usually struggle,” Carville noted. He also commended Jeffries for his leadership role in the House.

Despite his preference for a different candidate, Carville acknowledged the reality of the situation. “I hoped President Biden would reconsider running, but he chose otherwise. We have to deal with the current circumstances, not our ideal ones,” he said.

Carville voiced his concern about the potential disengagement of young voters, who were pivotal in the elections of Clinton and former President Obama. He worries that their disenchantment with the aging candidates, Biden and Trump, could lead to a significant decline in their political participation. “The apathy among young voters towards public policy and service is deeply troubling,” he said. “They feel disconnected from the political landscape dominated by two men in their 80s. I fear we might lose an entire generation’s engagement in the political process.”

Nonetheless, Carville affirmed his unwavering support for Biden. “Given the choice, I’m fully behind Joe Biden,” he declared.
