Hillary Clinton, a twice-failed presidential candidate, has identified a major issue with President Joe Biden and says ‘people have every right to consider it’ when they decide who to vote for in 2024. Clinton specifically talks about Joe Biden’s age and potential for dwindling mental stamina that may be required to keep up the pace on a hot-paced job like running the best country on the planet.
However, despite her open commentary about Joe Biden’s age, the withering wife of affair-happy Bill Clinton says she’ll still support Joe Biden if he’s the main Democrat running against the Republicans.

The Hill provided additional details on Hillary Clinton’s interview that took place at the Financial Times Weekend Festival located in Washington DC, where she was interviewed:
During an appearance at the Financial Times Weekend Festival in Washington, D.C., Clinton, who unsuccessfully ran for president in 2016, was asked by Financial Times editor Edward Luce about the moment when Biden almost fell walking down the stairs during the Group of Seven (G-7) summit in Hiroshima, Japan.
“Every time that happens, your heart is in your mouth, because these things could be consequential. Is that a concern?” Luce asked Clinton.
“Well, I mean, it’s a concern for anyone. And we’ve had presidents who’ve fallen before who are a lot younger, and people didn’t go into heart palpitations,” Clinton responded. “But his age is an issue. And people have every right to consider it.”
Hillary Clinton mentioned the dilemma with Joe Biden’s age, but suggested he has a ‘good record’ in office, something critics would highly disagree with in current times. Hillary further said to Luce: “And I am of the camp that I think he’s determined to run. He has a good record that three years ago people would not have predicted would have gotten done.”
“He doesn’t get the credit yet that he deserves for what is happening out in the country, in terms of jobs and growth and planning for the future, with chips and other stuff,” Clinton added. “So I obviously hope he stays very focused and able to compete in the election, because I think he– I think he can be re-elected, and that’s what we should all hope for.”
The election of 2024 is already starting to warm up with candidates like Donald Trump throwing a hat back into the action and getting his supporters excited for the future. The Democrats don’t have a clear front-runner other than Joe Biden, but anything could happen between now and the time when Republicans and Democrat designate their top candidate as we move closer to the election.
