On Wednesday, an MSNBC panel discussed the possibility of Pennsylvania Senator-elect John Fetterman running for the Democratic presidential candidacy in two years.

According to Katy Tur, Fetterman, who survived a May stroke that left him with an unsettling inability to absorb or respond to questions to defeat Republican Dr. Mehmet Oz, might be precisely what the party needs.

“Fetterman as a nominee at some point for president, um, I know there are some variables, obviously. But I just, you know, what he did in the super-red, deep red parts of Pennsylvania, and the way that he ran ahead of Biden, as you said, ran ahead of Trump, it just makes you wonder about his future.” Tur said.

Despite a shockingly bad performance in their lone debate, Fetterman, the current lieutenant governor and former mayor of tiny Braddock, Pennsylvania, managed to somehow eke out a slim victory over Oz on election night.

As Fetterman continues to rely on a closed captioning system to receive and react to inquiries, his campaign speeches have contained nonsensical soundbites.

Tur did not say when the 53-year-old Fetterman, who advocates for the release of up to one-third of Pennsylvania’s convicts, may run for president.

Despite having support ratings around 40% and approaching his 80th birthday, President Joe Biden has stated his intention to seek for re-election.
