Even Biden’s Own Family Wants Him Out of White House
Is Meghan Markle, the former actress and Duchess of Sussex, setting her sights on a career in politics? Since stepping away from her royal duties in 2020, Meghan Markle has remained in the public eye. Rumors of her interest in politics began to circulate, with unconfirmed reports suggesting that she has been building relationships with prominent Democrats. These rumors gained further traction when Valerie Biden Owens, a seasoned political strategist and sister of Joe Biden, expressed her support for Markle’s political endeavors.
Biden Owens, who played an active role in her brother’s presidential campaign, stated that she believed Markle would “make a good presidential candidate one day.” Her endorsement further fueled speculation about Markle’s potential entry into the political arena. In fact, a recent poll of Democrats revealed that Markle is currently tied with Kamala Harris and even ahead of former First Lady Hillary Clinton in terms of popularity…which isn’t really saying much.
While Markle’s high ranking in the poll may seem impressive, polling experts caution that it merely highlights the limited choices available within the Democratic Party. The fact that Markle’s name features prominently suggests a lack of strong female candidates. Nonetheless, her popularity among Democrats cannot be ignored, and it raises intriguing possibilities for her political future.
In an interview, Biden Owens emphasized the significance of having more women in politics, stating that their diverse perspectives contribute to a stronger democratic system. She welcomed Markle’s potential entry into the Democratic Party and encouraged her to join the ranks of women making a difference in politics.
While Markle’s potential political aspirations may come as a surprise to some, it is not uncommon for individuals with a background in the entertainment industry to transition into politics. Well-known figures such as Arnold Schwarzenegger and Ronald Reagan have successfully made the leap from Hollywood to the political arena. Schwarzenegger served as the 38th governor of California, while Reagan became the 40th President of the United States.
Despite the growing support for Markle’s political ambitions, there are obstacles she would need to overcome. One notable challenge is convincing Joe Biden, who denied her and her husband, Prince Harry, the use of Air Force One following the Queen’s funeral. The White House reportedly expressed concerns that their presence would cause a “commotion.” Overcoming such hurdles will be crucial for Markle if she decides to pursue a political career.
