Looking for a Younger Alternative to Biden?

Jason Palmer promo graphic

The Republicans are doing everything they can to attack President Biden because of his age, saying the 81-year-old Biden has lost his capacity to effectively serve as president.

Many Democrats share the concern about the president's age and not-so-secretly wish there was a younger alternative to Biden, so meet 52-year-old Jason Palmer, a venture capitalist who is challenging Joe Biden for the 2024 Democratic presidential nomination. He’s a super longshot to unseat the 81-year-old president.

Previously a General Partner at New Markets Venture Partners and Deputy Director at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Jason firmly believes in what he calls “conscious capitalism” and modernizing our government so the United States can be a true leader in the 21st century.

Jason is a leader in the technology and innovation space, having served in executive positions at Microsoft, Kaplan Education, The Gates Foundation, and his impact investor firm, New Markets Venture Partners.

A Harvard Business School alumni, Jason believes his 30 years of business and technology leadership qualifies him to run President, saying it is time to “pass the torch to a younger generation.”

Key questions we discussed with Palmer, who sees himself as a younger alternative to Biden:

Q. What is “conscious capitalism?”

Q. Tell us about your background and why you decided to run for president.

Q. You must admit this is an incredibly long shot to unseat Biden. How do you see this happening? What’s your path to winning the nomination?

Q. But you campaigned extensively in New Hampshire ahead of their primary, but you came in 10th and managed only 142 votes, or just 0.1 percent of those voting. That must have been discouraging. Marianne Williamson received over 5,000 votes, and she’s already dropped out of the race.

Q. So you believe you can catch fire with younger voters, especially?

Q. But besides the age factor, what do you bring to the table that makes you think you can and should be President?

Q. What’s your message to voters who like Biden, believe he’s done a remarkable job despite Republican intransigence, and push worries about his age aside?

Q. You’re not a household name, at least not as yet. So how do you plan to overcome this lack of name recognition?

Q. Artificial intelligence is rapidly growing in the U.S. with a potential serious impact on the economy, and on employment in many sectors. What are your thoughts about that and the overall importance of technology?

Q. Why are you better than Biden in handling these disruptions? Q. What about unions and organized labor? As a business executive, what are your thoughts about companies like Starbucks facing efforts to organize their employees?

Q. What would you do about the student loan crisis in this country? Do you believe student loans should be forgiven? Q. Yes, you have significant business and technology experience that could serve you well as president. But what about foreign policy and other key areas where you lack experience?

Q. Can you see yourself face-to-face against Putin? Q. To what extent should the U.S. be involved in Ukraine’s battle against Russia?

Q. And what about the situation in Israel and the Gaza Strip? What should the U.S. do?

Q. What are your thoughts about the immigration crisis and Trump’s ability to stop Congress from passing the reform legislation that Republicans had previously insisted upon?

Q. Say you win the nomination. What would be your strategy in going after Trump…he who is only four years younger than Biden and faces more than 90 criminal charges stemming from his effort to overturn the 2020 election, as well as his business dealings.

Q. Do you think Nikki Haley has a chance to unseat Trump for the GOP nod?

Q. What is your core message to voters? Why should they support you?

Q. Where is your financing coming from?

Q. How long do you plan to stay in this race if results don’t improve?
