Stacey Abrams says she ‘absolutely’ harbors ambitions to run for president

Years after she failed to capture the governorship of Georgia, Stacey Abrams is still shooting for the stars.

The Democratic operative told CBS that she “absolutely” harbors ambitions of serving as an American president someday, Breitbart reported.

Abrams didn’t say when she might throw her hat in the ring, but she has opined in the past with great confidence on the likelihood that she will sit in the Oval Office no later than 2040, so there’s still time for destiny to unfold.

Abrams still harbors White House ambitions

Some thought that Joe Biden would pick Abrams to be his running mate last year, but Kamala Harris got the job instead. Still, Abrams isn’t giving up on her dream. “Do I hold it as an ambition? Absolutely,” she told CBS News’ Erin Moriarty.

As she has often done, Abrams framed her personal ambitions as a public service in the context of social justice.

“And even more importantly, when someone asks me if that’s my ambition, I have a responsibility to say ‘Yes,’ for every young woman, every person of color, every young person of color who sees me and decides what they’re capable of based on what I think I am capable of.” She added, “It’s about, you cannot have those things you refuse to dream of.”

Abrams became a Democratic Party superstar after losing Georgia’s governor race in 2018 to Republican Brian Kemp and refusing to concede her loss, which she blamed on racist “voter suppression.”

“Greatest dream”

She insisted to CBS that her response is not comparable to Trump’s, saying, “Words matter….I have always ever fought to make certain that every vote got counted and every person got included.”

CBS obligingly writes that “ensuring that right to vote may someday help Abrams achieve her greatest dream, running for President.”

Cynics might agree that “voting rights” — or voter fraud, depending on your perspective — initiatives that Abrams champions may indeed coincide with, and potentially help her achieve, her “greatest dream.”

If she does ever follow through, recent trends seem auspicious. Georgia flipped unexpectedly blue for Biden, and Democrats picked up both of Georgia’s Senate seats in January, resulting in a narrowly divided chamber.

As the world awaits with bated breath, Abrams — author of eight steamy romance novels — is laying claim to literary greatness with a new legal thriller, While Justice Sleeps.

    1. After Obama I think it will be a long long time before another black or half black will ever get elected as President. With all the black power movement and racism the blacks are causing it would be devastating to have another in the WH. They have caused nothing but chaos and hatred in this Country. I have never felt the way I do about blacks till all the hatred and racism came from them.

  2. She might “harbor ambitions,” but she is TOO DUMB to be governor of Georgia, much LESS President!

  3. Does this demented idiot really think she has a chance in hell of being elected? Well she may have if the democrats get their way to rig every election from now on! Otherwise…………hahahahahahaha!

  4. She keeps getting bigger than she will probably die of a heart attack or stroke. People will not vote for that heffer. She was beating by a white man . The population was more black than anything. The only way she would become president if she cheated. I pray that Jesus comes soon. America is going to be like china and idiots like Biden will let china take over. She will never be president.

  5. Get it right…Georgia didn’t flip so much as the vote was manipulated to appear like a flip — it was stolen through fraudulence by folks who are willing to cheat without any qualms whatsoever. GET IT RIGHT because they are getting ready to do it again for the 2022 elections!!!

  6. She will definitely get all of the Ankole-Watusi herd to vote for her. You know…birds of a feather.
