In a Tuesday Wall Street Journal op-ed, Schoen Cooperman, former pollster for Bill Clinton, and Andrew Stein, a former New York City council member, wrote that failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is the Democrats’ “best option” to defeat the Republican nominee for president in 2024.
“Hillary Clinton remains ambitious, outspoken and convinced that if not for Federal Bureau of Investigation Director James Comey’s intervention and Russian interference that she would have won the 2016 election,” the men wrote about Hillary’s 2016 election loss, “and she may be right.”
“She is already in an advantageous position to become the 2024 Democratic nominee,” they continued. “She is an experienced national figure who is younger than Mr. Biden and can offer a different approach from the disorganized and unpopular one the party is currently taking.”
Donald Trump defeated Hillary by 77 Electoral College votes in 2016. Hillary has dubbed her failed candidacy as a loss that “made her cry.”
