She Is Making A Mistake

Backroom chatter has been going on for months concerning Obama eighty-sixing Shemp Biden and replacing him with Hillary. Naturally us right thinkers don’t hanker to that idea much, for the obvious reason that regardless of the economy a Obama/Hillary ticket would be formidable. And with every passing Biden gaffe, almost daily, the rank and file becomes more surly and the mood for a swap becomes hurricane like.

I saw this today and addresses Hillary’s coming out party:

It’s fun to speculate in this area because of the broad and sweeping ramifications, but I think Bill in this instance is absolutely right, she as got to accept.

Vegas money is still on Obama, the incumbent always starts out with a leg up. The burn out excuse is weak, if anything she could R&R for 4 years as VP, that schedule would be nothing like what she has done the last few years. Factor in that the one VP debate scheduled with be hosted by Martha Raddatz, ABC’s chief foreign correspondent, what better tag team could there be with Martha feeding both candidates nothing but international questions, an area where Ryan is weak but is right in Hillary’s wheel house, she could easily win that debate.

The ,”She would have to defend Obama’s policies” excuse is also weak, Bush the elder had no problem distancing himself from Reagan, ditto with Gore to Clinton, you want the candidate to redefine himself to a point. And really, Obama’s domestic policies are so bad, they will do no better the next 4 years then in these 4 years, she will want to disavow most of them anyway.

Although supposedly she turned it down, I can easily see a scenario where Obama finds himself trailing {badly} in the polls and a united DNC push will emerge drafting Hillary to “save the party”, how could she say NO?

I may be crazy but I think the odds are that Hillary will be on the ticket come November. Alright let me have it.

    Last I heard was that Bill was going all in for the 2016 election, going so far as to start lining up corporate jets for use and a running mate. They want her rested, to lose 40 pounds, and disassociated from Obama by an administration.

    Nope, that would show that bad judgement was made picking him in the first place, which it was, but this would simply add fuel to the fire, and could be seen as panic and confusion on their part especially if the GOP took advantage of it. In reality, dumping the moron would be the best idea, but you have to factor in how the other side could exploit it. They’ll keep Biden, and probably keep him much more distant. If you’re stuck with Biden, a quiet Biden is a good Biden.

    Her Filthiness can’t very well charge in as liberalism’s Joan of Arc in 2016 if she had run as Obama’s VP in 2012.

    I’m afraid you’ll just have to masturbate e few more years rich.

    I totally agree with Section 8’s take.
    My guess is that she’s not interested partly because she’s hoping Obama loses, setting her up better for 2016.
    Although it may be hopeful on her part that Romney/Ryan only get one term, it’s probably more likely than a Democrat being elected to the White House three times in a row.
    Sure is interesting though.

    If Obama had lost in 2008 then this would definitely have been her year, but I have to agree that she’s waiting for 2016. Biden will be put out to pasture and the nomination could well be hers for the asking.

    She’d be an idiot to take the job.

    If Obama wins, then he will have four years totally unshackled from any electoral accountability. Do you think he will move left or right? Hillary needs to appear centrist. She may not want to be, but, if she politics like her hubby, then she will do everything she can to hit the middle. BEing associated with Obama’s second term will not help with that. She can also spend four years cranking up the Clinton election machine. Lots of favor for strategic politicians, lots of fundraising, etc.

    If Obama loses, then she is in the same boat-she will still be trying for the middle, but against that far right winger Romney (heh heh).

    In either case, she will have the nomination easily. She still has a huge groups of supporters, she likely licks up a lot of Obamas people and off she goes.

    The Dem party then gets to crow about the first woman president right after bragging about the first black president. Look for a trangendered Latino in 2024.
