In a recent op-ed for The Washington Post, senior columnist David Ignatius made a bold call for President Biden to abstain from running for re-election in 2024. Ignatius, a respected figure in the political sphere, argues that two significant factors should lead Biden to step aside: his age and the popularity of his running mate, Kamala Harris.

Firstly, Ignatius highlights the issue of age, noting that Biden would be 82 at the start of a potential second term. Citing a recent Associated Press-NORC poll, he emphasizes that 77 percent of the public, including 69 percent of Democrats, believe Biden is too old to serve for another four years effectively. The concern about his age has become a widespread topic of discussion nationwide.

Secondly, Ignatius addresses the standing of Kamala Harris. Despite her role as Vice President, Harris has garnered a less impressive approval rating than Biden, sitting at 39.5 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight. Her inability to gain traction, even within her own party, raises questions about her future viability as a presidential candidate.

Ignatius suggests that Biden could help his cause by opening up the vice-presidential selection process to find a stronger running mate. However, he cautions that breaking up the Biden-Harris ticket could risk alienating Black women, a crucial constituency. The decision is not without its challenges.

In conclusion, Ignatius contends that if Biden believes he has conquered Trump and has the best chance to prevent a “revenge presidency,” he may choose to run again. However, he also highlights Biden’s tendency to struggle with saying “no,” especially to his son Hunter. He implies that Biden’s withdrawal from the 2024 race would be wise for the country.
