Van Jones Suggests Kamala Harris Likely To Succeed Biden If Re-Elected

During a recent broadcast of “CNN NewsNight,” political commentator and former Obama adviser Van Jones discussed the implications of a potential Joe Biden victory in the upcoming election. Jones suggested that if Biden wins, there is a significant chance that Vice President Kamala Harris will eventually become president.

Host Abby Phillip brought up the point, often described as a conservative talking point, that Kamala Harris might essentially be on the ballot. Phillip noted, “This has been something that they have described as a conservative talking point, a hit job, that she’s really the one on the ballot. But it seems like, at this very moment, that is true.”

Jones agreed, highlighting the contrast between Biden’s recent debate performance and his subsequent rally. “Joe Biden did a great job today, and that was a relief for a lot of people,” Jones said. “But it’s hard to unsee yesterday. And it’s hard to imagine the guy you saw yesterday making it four-and-a-half more years. And so, you do have to acknowledge, there is a high likelihood that a Joe Biden victory ultimately means Kamala Harris will be president.”

Jones emphasized that voters need to consider this possibility seriously. “People need to make the decision, do you feel comfortable? Do you feel good about that?” he asked, urging voters to reflect on the potential implications of Biden’s health and stamina over a second term.

The discussion has brought renewed attention to the age and health of the current president, who would be 82 at the beginning of a potential second term. This raises questions about the readiness of Vice President Harris to step into the role if needed. As the election draws nearer, this issue is likely to be a focal point for both campaigns and voters alike.
