CNN editor-at-large Chris Cilizza suggested that Biden could potentially “step aside” to elevate his new running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, alluding to the idea that Biden may not finish his presidential term, if elected, according to Breitbart News.

He wrote (emphasis added):

“At 55 years old, [Harris] represents a younger generation of leader — something that Biden, who will be 78 on Inauguration Day 2021, said was a major factor in his choice.”

“What that all means is that Biden wants the race to be about him as little as possible.”


“What Biden did is make the pick that maximized his chances of continuing to make the race a straight referendum on Trump while also selecting someone, in Harris, whose resume suggests will be ready to step in if and when Biden decides to step aside.”

Biden’s announcement of his running mate was worded in such a way that suggested Harris might be expected “to lead this nation starting in January 2021”:

Cilizza argued that Biden’s choice reflected confidence that he will win the election in November — but also suggested that he might not be able to do the job.

Notably, CNN president Jeff Zucker endorsed Kamala Harris for California attorney general in the 2009-10 election, and helped her meet “movers and shakers” in New York. At the time, he was president of NBC Universal, and said that he was making a rare exception to his “very, very strict policy” of not supporting political candidates.
