Former First Lady Hillary Clinton, who has twice run for president as a Democrat and come up short, has sparked new talk of a potential 2024 run over remarks she made about President Joe Biden’s age.
Clinton’s off-the-radar remarks came during a chatfest at the Financial Times Weekend Festival in Washington, D.C., when she was asked about Biden’s near-fall down some steps at the G7 Summit in Hiroshima, Japan, last week.
“There was that heart-stopping moment when he almost fell over coming down the stairs a day or two ago,” Financial Times editor Edward Luce noted. “He didn’t use a railing, and Jill wasn’t there with him.
“Every time that happens, your heart is in your mouth because these things could be consequential. Is that a concern?” he then asked.
“It’s a concern for anyone. We’ve had presidents who had fallen before who were a lot younger, and people didn’t go into heart palpitations,”
