She’s back… former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is set to speak at the New York Democratic convention as her party desperately seeks someone… actually just about anyone who might have the slimmest of chances of winning the presidency in 2024 and it’s evidently not President Joe Biden.

Republican National Convention Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel rolled with the Democrats’ desperation, saying, “I mean, how desperate are the Democrats if Hillary Clinton is the best you can do?”

“Let’s recycle the worst candidate we’ve ever had in our party’s history because Joe Biden is actually turning out to be such a bad president that we’ve got to go back to Hillary?” McDaniel said in a Fox News appearance. “Their bench is so weak that they’re going back to Hillary Clinton. I think she’s probably looking at it because Biden’s in a lot of trouble. A Fox News poll said 60 percent of Americans said they wouldn’t vote for Biden again so the Democrats are desperate and they’re looking to Hillary I guess.”

After it was pointed out that Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have said they are running in 2024, McDaniel gleefully clapped back, “Yeah, that’s great. Go for it. We hope they run again. That’s gonna make sure we elect a Republican in 2024.”

“Look what they’ve done to this country. Our country is struggling. Americans are worse off than they were just a year ago with inflation, with rising gas prices, with an open border, with a drug crisis, with what we’re seeing with Russia… I mean on every single level Biden has been a failure and the American people are absolutely looking for a change in leadership. We’re going to see it in the midterms with Republicans taking back the House and Senate and then we’ll take back the White House in 2024,” she continued.

“She’s beloved by the mainstream members of the Democratic Party and her popularity is likely higher than that of President Biden,” a source told CNBC. “It’s good for her because it keeps her relevant, and her appearance is likely meant to galvanize the party and the audience.”

It’s widely rumored that Clinton, 74, will make another run at the presidency in 2024 due to Biden’s cratering poll numbers and massive unpopularity, even though she has previously claimed that she will not run for political office again.

Two of her former allies, Democratic pollster Doug Schoen and former Manhattan Borough President Andrew Stein, recently published an op-ed in The Wall Street Journal that describes “a perfect storm in the Democratic Party” that could pave the way for Clinton to take another shot at the presidency.

Democrats are increasingly worried that dissatisfaction with Biden’s presidency could cost them their majority in Congress in the November midterm elections. If Republicans take control of either the U.S. House of Representatives or the Senate, Biden will for all intents and purposes become a lame-duck president.

Clinton has previously warned the Democratic Party that it needs to be “clear-eyed” about what wins elections. That ostensibly was a warning to the progressive wing of the Democratic Party which risks handing midterm victories to the Republicans because of political radicalization.

She told NBC’s Willie Geist in December that Democrats needed candidates who could win in purple states if they want a Congress that will “get things done.”

“I think that it is a time for some careful thinking about what wins elections, and not just in deep blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat or so-called progressive Democrat is going to win,” commented Clinton.

“We’ve got to be very clear-eyed about what it’s going to take to hold the House and the Senate in 2022. And to win the electoral college because also Republicans are doing everything they can to create an environment in which winning the Electoral College, even narrowly the way Joe Biden did will be out of reach for Democrats,” she said in December, appearing to position herself to come to the left’s rescue.

“But at the end of the day, nothing is going to get done if you don’t have a Democratic majority in the House, in the Senate, and our majority comes from people who win in much more difficult districts and our majority in the Senate comes from people who can win in not just blue states and hold those wins … but can win in more purplish states,’ she added. “So this is going to be a very intense period, not just for the Democratic Party, but for the country.”
