CNN’s Cilizza: Kamala is ready “if and when Biden decides to step aside”

Headline: CNN: Joe Biden could “step aside” for Kamala Harris

What’s Up: In a follow-up to the coverage of the Biden-Harris firs joint campaignt appearance, many on the media’s left side were gushing over the pair and openly praising the selection of Kamala Harris. In the case of CNN’s Chris Cilizza, the praise also appears to have included some hints to the former VP — should he win he election.

Quote: “Joe Biden made the pick that maximized his chances of continuing to make the race a straight referendum on Trump while also selecting someone whose resume suggests being ready to step in, if and when Biden decides to step aside.” —

The First take: Cilizza’s title at CNN is “Editor-at-Large.” We would normally expect that role to involve something called “journalism.” Mr. Cilizza’s hints, directions, suggestions for Joe Biden appear to fall far from the category of reporting and journalism. Then again, that’s our OPINION. That said, he did say what everyone is thinking: That there’s a real chance Biden doesn’t make it through a full term, either due to his health or the cognitive issues that have sprouted up during the campaign.
