Democratic strategist James Carville says Obama, Bill Clinton should lead discussion replacing Biden

Famed Democratic strategist James Carville said on Monday that former Presidents Clinton and Obama should lead discussions on replacements for President Biden.

"I want to see the Democratic Party hold four historic town halls between now and the Democratic National Convention in August — one each in the South, the Northeast, the Midwest and the West," Carville wrote in the New York Times.

"We can recruit the two most obvious and qualified people in the world to facilitate substantive discussions: Barack Obama and Bill Clinton. They may not represent every faction under our party’s big tent. But they care as much about our democracy as our nation’s first president, they understand what it takes to be president, and they know how to win," he said.

Carville explained further that the two Democratic icons should consult with the country's 23 Democratic governors in a town hall selection process.

Carville’s comments came after commentators, lawmakers, and Democrat officials continue to call for Biden to withdraw after his debacle at the presidential debate. 

Due to so many House lawmakers calling for the commander-in-chief to step aside, Biden penned a letter on Monday to congressional Democrats urging them to stop questioning whether he should end his re-election bid and "move forward as a unified party" in order to defeat former President Trump in their 2024 election rematch.
