I really admire AOC’s spunk. She’s not perfect — she is apt to be a bit too earnest and divisive at times — but she’s the center-Left’s future. But the news that she’s engaged just as a few years before her 35 birthday in October 2024 definitely makes one wonder what she’s up to.
The case could be made that two years would be just enough time for her to get married and squeeze out one politically necessary baby before she turns around and runs for POTUS in 2024.
Her doing so would be, on one level, be rather audacious and jaw dropping. In our current geriatric anocracy, someone just barely old enough to be president in the first place running for the office is a sight to see.
One thing to consider — should Republicans win Congress in this year, which seems inevitable, then it’s very possible that the GOP will go nuts and impeach both Biden and Harris more than once. This, given Biden’s advanced age, might open a political opportunity for AOC to be a dark horse candidate.
And, what’s worse, the election of 2024 could very well be one big old clusterfuck. Steve K. Bannon’s spiritual shock troops do his administrative coup and we have a Certification Crisis…well, AOC is just the type of passionate leader America would need at that point.
Or put another way, all signs point towards late 2024 – early 2025 being a massive fucking clusterfuck. A train wreck. There could be coups, counter-coups and rumors of civil war. Whatever happens, I suspect AOC will be at the forefront of it all.
