Joe Biden hasn’t even been inaugurated yet and CNN pundits are already speculating about him serving only one term, leaving Kamala Harris as the frontrunner in 2024.
Anderson Cooper and former senior advisor to Barack Obama, David Axelrod, discussed the matter over the weekend.
Cooper surmised that Biden’s age would limit him to one term and noted the significant age gap between he and the Vice President-Elect.
“I mean her age, Joe Biden’s age, the potential that he may only serve one term …” Cooper began before Axelrod interrupted.
“This is a unique political situation,” Axelrod observed. “Because never has a vice president entered office on the first day as the, kind of, presumed frontrunner for the nomination four years later.”

Axelrod Explains How Kamala Harris Will Have to Navigate Being 2024 Frontrunner
Axelrod explained how Kamala Harris will have to set about being an intermediary between the self-proclaimed moderate in Biden and the extreme left supporters that view her as their best bet at control of the White House.
“Because she is seen by many on the left of the party as sort of their person in the administration, the person who is going to bring different voices into the discussions, there’s also pressure associated with that,” Axelrod explained.
“So it’s a really unique situation that she’s going to have to navigate.”
That is an incredibly roundabout way to say Harris needs to hide who she really is from the public – the most liberal member of Congress for years – while giving a wink and a nod to her radical supporters.
“Kamala Harris is absolutely prepared to be president.”

Is Harris a Trojan Horse? Is Joe Biden a One-Term President?
Assuming Kamala Harris is the frontrunner for 2024 might be bad enough, but things grow evermore frightening when you consider Biden will be 78 when he takes the oath of office.
He has also exhibited signs of cognitive decline, which even Democrat voters have acknowledged.

Harris could easily be called upon to serve as President well before Biden finishes his one term.
President Donald Trump has been warning voters that “Biden is just a Trojan Horse for the radical left agenda” adding that he “will do whatever they want.”
In reality, Biden might just be a placeholder for the time being until Harris can be elevated to the role of President.
Remember, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi last month announced that she would create a “bipartisan” commission that could remove the president from power using the 25th Amendment.
Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats still have not accepted the results of the 2016 election. Their talk of the 25th amendment is just a continuation of that.

President Trump at the time speculated that the commission wasn’t meant for him.
“Crazy Nancy Pelosi is looking at the 25th Amendment in order to replace Joe Biden with Kamala Harris,” the President claimed. “The Dems want that to happen fast because Sleepy Joe is out of it!”

Pelosi all but admitted as much regarding the commission, saying it was for future presidents.
“This is not about President Trump,” she told reporters. “He will face the judgment of the voters. But he shows the need for us to create a process for future presidents.”
It’d be a borderline miracle if Harris isn’t named President well before 2024 rolls around.
