Former Biden Rival Jumps Back Into Democratic Race

Author Marianne Williamson is back in a race many were likely unaware that she had abandoned. The Democrat claimed incumbent Joe Biden could lose the November election to a “juggernaut of dark, dark vision,” presumably referring to former President Donald Trump.

Her third-place showing in Michigan was apparently enough to motivate the self-help writer to “unsuspend” her abandoned run for the nomination.

Democrats notably treated the 2024 primary season as a foregone conclusion and dismissed rivals of President Joe Biden. The party actively worked to suppress the campaign of Robert Kennedy Jr., leading the candidate to switch to independent status.

Besides a solid wall of Republicans, most Democrats also feel that Biden is unfit to serve another four years in the White House. His unscheduled trip to Walter Reed Medical Center this week only added fuel to the fire.

Williamson quickly moved in to announce the resumption of her candidacy, which was suspended on Feb. 7. She took to social media to explain her reasoning for reentering the Democratic race.

She told supporters, “As of today, I am un-suspending my campaign for the presidency of the United States. I had suspended it because I was losing the horse race. But something so much more important than the horse race is at stake here, and we must respond.”

Williamson warned Democrats that a fascist is at the door waiting to enter. She said the party is upset about this possibility and should be, but it will not be President Biden who defeats the presumptive GOP nominee.

Instead, the author painted herself as occupying the left of the president. She rightly noted that Oval Office claims of a booming economy are contradicted by Americans forced to get second and even third jobs just to make ends meet.

As for the specific platform, Williamson brings a progressive’s wish list to the party.

She pledged as president to eliminate student loan debt, provide tuition-free college, Medicare for all, paid family leave and guaranteed living wages.

How to pay for that utopia, of course, is murky at best.

But in a position that is nearly Trump-esque, the writer argued for the need to return the country to the time when “we actually had a thriving middle class.” Or perhaps, to make America great again.
