Will Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin Be President One Day?

by Shelt Garner

The thing about Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin is, on paper at least, he has a pretty good shot at being a serious — if dark horse — candidate for president in 2024. But there are a lot of problems with this on a practical basis.

If this was 20 years ago, then Youngkin would have a pretty good shot at being president by going the successful George W. Bush route — run on empty, vacuous platitudes, not really saying anything and then once in office being a lot more conservative than any of us expected.

But this isn’t 2000. And there is the issue of Trump standing in the way. So, Youngkin’s best bet at this point is to be Trump’s veep then succeed the orange dingus should he shuffle off this mortal coil during his radical second term. But, by definition, even someone as bland as Youngkin would be America’s first autocrat for no other reason than our democratic norms have been destroyed to the point that ANY Republican president will be an autocrat.

This is all part of a broader problem with the United States. The positions of the two sides have hardened to the point that there is no middle ground. Pick a side or a side will be chosen for you.
