It would be the sequel of the century, the entire world would be captivated, and it could happen.

Former President Donald Trump versus his 2016 opponent, former Secretary Of State Hillary Clinton for the presidency in 2024, two Democrat operatives said, The Daily Mail reported.

Just a year into Joe Biden’s presidency, his and Kamala Harris’ low popularity and back-to-back domestic and foreign crises has Democrats searching for a viable presidential candidate.

That could set the stage for the former Secretary of State’s political comeback, Douglas E. Schoen and Andrew Stein predict in a piece for the Wall Street Journal.

It all depends on how Democrats perform in this year’s midterm elections, they write.

There are also mounting questions over Biden will decide to run again, given he will be 86 at the end of his second term if he wins.

“Given the likelihood that Democrats will lose control of Congress in 2022, we can anticipate that Mrs. Clinton will begin shortly after the midterms to position herself as an experienced candidate capable of leading Democrats on a new and more successful path,” the experts said.

If Biden won the 2024 presidential election he would be 81 on day one. That would make him the oldest president in history.

Think back to the 1980s when the late President Ronald Regan was mocked on shows like “Saturday Night Live” for being too old, and then consider he was 77 years old on his last day in the White House.

And some believe, after a recent interview where Clinton appeared to take a swipe at the current White House, that she could be positioning herself to take the place of the unpopular President Biden on the Democrat ticket.

During an interview with NBC’s Willie Geist, which will air in full on his podcast ‘Sunday Sitdown,” Clinton seemed to suggest the White House is not “stable” and “sane.”

Clinton’s comments came in response to Geist asking about the progressive wing of the party costing Democrats in swing elections in next year’s midterms.

“So what do you see as the state of the Democratic Party right now?” Geist asked.

“I think that it is a time for some, you know, careful thinking about what wins elections and not just in Deep Blue districts where a Democrat and a liberal Democrat or so-called progressive Democrat is going to win,” Clinton said.

“I understand why people want to argue for their priorities, that’s what they believe they were elected to do. So, look, I am all about having vigorous debates. I think it’s good and it gives people a chance to be part of the process,” she added.

“But, at the end of the day it means nothing if we don’t have a Congress that’ll get things done and we don’t have a White House that we can count on to be sane and sober and stable and productive,” Clinton said.

Clinton also spoke about Donald Trump running for president in 2024.

“If I were a betting person right now, I’d say Trump is going to run again. He seems to be setting himself up to do that. And if he’s not held accountable, then he gets to do it again,” she said.

“I think that could be the end of our democracy. Not to be too pointed about it, but I want people to understand that this is a make-or-break point. If he were, or someone of his ilk were once again to be elected president, and if especially he had a Congress that would do his bidding, you will not recognize our country,” Clinton added.
