The fact that Joe Biden is mentally unfit to lead the country again is becoming too hard to ignore for many. Special Counsel Hur’s report recently described Biden as an “elderly man with a poor memory.” And there are growing concerns among Americans on both sides of the aisle about Biden’s mental fitness to serve.

But amidst it all, Kamala Harris, the Vice President, says she is ready to step up to the task. In an interview she had with The Wall Street Journal two days before the release of the damning Hur report, Harris answered questions about Biden’s age and what it means for his 2024 campaign. 

The interview happened during a flight on Air Force Two early last week. It saw Vice President Kamala Harris detailing her priorities for the campaign when she got a delicate question.

Do voters’ concerns about President Biden’s age mean she has to convince them she is ready to step up? “I am ready to serve. There’s no question about that,” Harris responded confidently.

She added that everyone who sees her on the job “walks away fully aware of my capacity to lead.” Her response came two days before the special counsel report on Biden amplified concerns about his mental acuity.

According to the report, Biden is an “elderly man with a poor memory” who displayed “diminished faculties” in interviews. The findings have intensified the scrutiny on Harris, 59. She is the first woman and Black vice president.

However, her tenure has been marked by criticism of her political skills. Nevertheless, what used to be quiet talk of whether Harris could become president is now being discussed in the open.

“There was always going to be a lot of scrutiny and pressure on her in the 2024 campaign, and that moment’s here now,” said Jennifer Palmieri, who worked in the Obama and Clinton administrations and for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. “I think that the special counsel’s report has sort of accelerated that moment.”

In recent months, Harris has taken on greater and more public responsibilities. She is now the lead messenger on abortion rights and is in charge of the new Office of Gun Violence Prevention. She is also playing a higher-profile role in the administration’s handling of the war in Gaza.

Harris has pushed the administration to convey more empathy for Palestinians and to focus on a postconflict Gaza plan. While others discrediting Biden might make it possible for her to become president, she does not plan to stop supporting him.

Shortly after the special counsel report went public, West Wing aides asked Harris’s team to have her appear on a Sunday news show to defend Biden. Harris could not wait. At an event on Friday, she publicly slammed the report as politically motivated and gratuitous. As far as she is concerned, the president is “on top of and in front of it all.”
