NY POST – She’s Hillary 2.0.
Vice President Kamala Harris’ very bad week amid revelations of a toxic office culture is giving some Dems troublesome flashbacks to Hillary Clinton — with some in her party worried she won’t be able to beat any GOP candidate in the future.
“She would have a hard time beating anybody, as we saw the last time she ran. And I think we run the risk of a 2016 redo,” a Democratic Capitol Hill insider told The Post, recalling Clinton’s presidential race defeat to Donald Trump, who played up his status as a Beltway outsider.
Clinton, the former senator and secretary of state was much adored by party grandees, but a bruising primary with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders that year put her at odds with much of the party’s activist base.
Though Biden avenged the party in 2020 and Democrats took back control of Congress, Clinton’s loss has haunted liberal strategists ever since.
The concerns come as Harris is closing out what is almost certainly her worst week in office, buffeted by nasty reports of a toxic work environment for her staff.
Her short vice presidency has also been marred by the ongoing crisis at the southern border, a problem she has been tasked to address, but for which there has so far been little progress. For months, Harris refused to visit the border, earning the ire of conservative critics.
At 78, Biden is the oldest person ever elected to a first term in American history and questions about his mental health have dogged his short tenure.
Many top DC insiders — and even some senior administration officials — believe Harris would lose a 2024 contest to whoever the GOP chooses — including Trump, Axios reported.

“The far left and the mainstream media were demanding that be the new standard for anybody who’s going to lead our country and be our Commander-in-Chief and our head of state,” Jackson said. “I’m just saying I agree with them at this point—we need to get it done.”
Trump was asked to take the Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA), a 30-point test that measures levels of memory impairment and cognitive decline. The former president took the exam in 2018 after critics questioned his ability to run the county.
Jackson administered the MoCA to Trump, and the president scored a 30 out of 30. Due to the nature of the test, people who are no experiencing cognitive decline should be able to gain perfect or near-perfect scores on the test.
The White House announced last month that Biden will be taken his presidential physical later this year, ahead of schedule of his predecessor. The White House did not address whether or not the president would be taking the MoCA as part of his physical.
“I think he’s demonstrating every single day that there is something going on,” Jackson said. “You don’t need to be a physician to look at this behavior and see there’s something concerning happening.”
Jackson told Fox News he believes that Trump set a precedent by taking the cognitive exam, and future presidents should be held to the same measures” … READ MORE.
