(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – Could Joe Biden select Kamala Harris as his nominee to the United States Supreme Court now that Justice Stephen Breyer is retiring?
That’s a distinct possibility that has many political pundits buzzing.
After all, it would solve two problems that Biden and the Democrats have as they head into the 2022 congressional midterm and 2024 presidential election cycles.
First, it would fulfill Biden’s 2020 campaign promise to appoint a Black woman to the United States Supreme Court. Second, it would remove the extremely unpopular Harris as a vice-presidential candidate in 2024.
Given that almost everyone expects that Biden will not run again in 2024, it would give the Democrat Party a do-over – a clean slate to face an anticipated rematch with Donald Trump.
Indeed, the buzz about Harris as a Supreme Court possibility broke out on Fox News yesterday. As businessinsider.com reports:
“A Fox News panel floated the prospect of President Joe Biden nominating Vice President Kamala Harris to the Supreme Court in response to Wednesday reports that Justice Stephen Breyer plans to retire from the court…
“‘Race is at the heart of just about everything we see from the left right now. It is so much in the nomenclature of politics that are most divisive in America right now, not bringing us together. Would this further divide?’ anchor Harris Faulkner said.
“Faulkner then mentioned the speculation that Harris could be nominated in the context of news reports detailing internal turmoil in Harris’ office and a strained relationship with Biden’s team.
“‘So this person has to be a woman, she has to be Black and she’s gotta be younger. Anybody thinking what I’m thinking? They don’t know what to do with Kamala Harris in the White House right now. And I can’t be the only person seeing this,’ Faulkner said.
Kayleigh McEnany agreed, saying:
“‘Politically speaking, if you are not happy with the vice president and you want her in a different role, there’s no greater role than the Supreme Court,’ former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany, also on the panel, said.”
Certainly, it’s a long shot. But, it would solve one problem for the Democrats.
