On Kudlow Ed Klein just claimed that 2 wks ago Jarrett offered Hillery VP slot (vanity)
(seen on CNBC's Kudlow program) | August 16, 2012 | self

Posted on 08/16/2012 5:21:45 PM PDT by Seizethecarp

Joe Klein (author of "The Amateur")said his sources in the Clinton camp told him that Jarrett invited Hillary to lunch two weeks ago and asked her if she would accept the VP slot to replace Biden. Hillary refused to encourage an offer.

Klein said that Bill and Jarrett (and it is assumed Michelle and Barry) were for it, but Hillary figured that if Obama lost, she would be finished and she wanted to preserve her options for 2016.

It appears Slick Willie’s wife didn’t want to work THAT CLOSE to the Kenyan. This may explain why she lives in the Middle East.

I heard Jeffery Kuhner of the Washington Times editorial page say the same thing on the radio here in DC this afternoon. Kuhner stated that Hillary had declined and that she and billyboy are expecting Obama to be defeated this November and she will ‘ride to the rescue of the democrate party in 2016’

“Hillary refused to encourage an offer”

Not the same as saying “no”

Palin’s surveillance bugs inside the regime must be providing good intel.

She’s leaking the leaks before the “official” leakers are leaking them.

It’s big fun to watch the Baraqqis (and their MSM cohorts) go down the drain.

I really don’t think Hillary will run in 2016. She’d be 69 years old then and unlike Reagan who was 69 when elected, Hillary looks every bit of her age. But you can be sure whoever does run on the Dem side will be picked and promoted by the Clintons.

They live for the day that Obama and his Chicagoland thugs go down and what’s left of their party comes crawling back to them. They can smugly say, “I told you so.”

Lets just make sure the Kenyan is defeated this time. We can deal with her and the rest of the Arkansas Mafia next cycle.

If it happened it wouldn’t have been two weeks ago. Changing the VP would have to be prepared far in advance, so as to avoid the impression of panic or incompetence.

Well, the boy-wonder, White House Press Secretary, Jay Carney, said today that Biden is definitely staying on the Ticket. He further said the John McCain was the last person they would take advice from re: a VP running mate.

I don't think the WH is going to hold the same allure for the aged Clintons in four years.

And she has a husband of questionable health who looks 10 years older then his age.

Unless they really are panicking. We already know they are incompetent!

It just occurred to me that Romney said I made the VP pick on August 1st, two weeks ago. Given the opposition intel available to Barry, it may have been the selection of Ryan that prompted the offer to Hillary, knowing that Ryan could wipe the floor with Biden.

“Hillary looks every bit of her age.”

Surgery can cure that and make her look a lot younger.

As long as she doesn’t over do it like Pelosi has.

But, the Presidential race always starts two years early. So, in 2014, Hillary will be 66 (she won’t turn 67 until October of 2014)and it’s remarkable what make-up artists can do. Since becoming Sec. of State, she has just let herself go. She doesn’t even comb her hair. That will change if she runs. She’ll spruce up herself and look younger, more vibrant and even a little attractive.

“Not the same as saying ‘no’”

Kudlow pressed Klein on whether an actual offer was extended and Klein was careful to say that Jarrett only asked Hillary whether she would be open to an offer.

Klein said that Barry did not directly make the inquiry to Hillary because Barry was certain that Bill would leak it.

Klein also said that even if Barry won, Hillary as VP would be tarred by Barry's extreme leftist policies and would be forced to defend them...far more, I suppose, than she has been in the post of SOS.

Obama has got to have been the weakest weenie to ever ‘lead’ an american political party.

Good grief, imagine if Pelosi and Reid had let him ‘lead’ the country...

May have been told Barack would like to make her an offer if she would accept it, and she may have given Val a chance not to have to be told ‘no’ officially.

Chelsea has had extensive cosmetic surgery. So how did that work out for her? She’s still a double bagger.

There’s way too much that would need to be done for Hill to be a contender starting with face lift, lipo on thighs and
cankle and arse reduction.

Additionally, they have to figure out what to do about her Muslim GF, Huma Weiner.

The WH put this out because Sarah Palin had suggested the other day that the Obama team replace Biden with Clinton. Should they go with Clinton they could say that they did so not because Palin had suggested it.

In terms of how it comes across on TV, I disagree that Ryan will wipe the floor with Biden. Biden is very, very slick. He makes stuff up with even missing a beat, and it’s impossible — as Gingrich found with Romney — to deal with someone who flat out lies in the middle of a debate.

In Biden’s case, he’s so slick that no one can call him on it.

Remember the foreign policy piece of his debate with Palin when the came out with the “fact” that we’d spent more in 3 weeks on Iraq than we had in all of the Aghan conflict up to that point. That was so wrong, but people don’t have those numbers at their fingertips, and the MEDIA would never call him on it.

So, this Biden/Ryan debate will not be a cakewalk.

And you can bet that the liberal moderators will slant every question toward foreign policy and away from budget, jobs, economy, etc. They’ll avoid Ryan’s strengths.

She’s been a serious road warrior both in the 08 campaign and as SoS. That’s tough duty, even with private jets and 5 star hotels, for someone near 65.

Throw in the energy needed to keep Huma happy, and I’m not at all surprised she’s looking rode hard and put away wet.

If I had the cash and desire, I could look 20 again. I have neither...and am far away from 20. Dang..is there cankle surgery? Or could one just wear a long dress or pant suit?

Many people, unlike us, don’t see her ugly mind.

The Huma issue is a lttle harder for her to shed. But since the CIC cuddles up to the Muslim Brotherhood with no criticism there might not be a problem with suppoters.

If we see her losing weight and fixing her hair..it might be time to worry.

I’ve lived in DC for 20 years (save three) and I’ve worked in politics for ten of those. I’ve had the experience of working with a lot of real true-blue America loving conservatives and I’ve also had to work with democrats. Several of them were close to Hillary and I can tell you that if she thought the ticket was a winner, she would have taken the job. Given the fact that Obama is a miserable failure, I predicted that she would leave in 2011, write a book and run against that guy that her husband felt should be getting them coffee.
I think she missed her opportunity and she doesn’t want more of this administration hung over her shoulders than already is. Unless Joe takes a trip to Ft Marcy Park, she’ll have to wait.

If Obama is so "up" in the polls, why is Joe Biden a factor? Why replace him?

All of this talk is another sign that the real polls read by the actual campaigns shows Obama in deep trouble.

Well, now, hey; let’s be fair. When Hillary was running against Obama in ‘08 she had a very stylish hair style, kept her weight down and was an attractive older woman. For real. Now, she looks horrible. She’d have to do some work on herself to make a run as VP with Obama. That might be why she doesn’t want the VP spot; too much trouble to fix herself up every morning. Maybe she’s gotten use to letting herself go.

I totally disagree. Everyone, including Democrats are calling Joe on his obvious stupidity. IMO Palin won her debate with Biden despite all of the excuse making for his made up facts.

Agreed. Obama and his team are already giving signs of being in panic mode, and his followers can sense it. Admitting he'd made a mistake with Clueless Joe would help solidify him as being "in over his head" and give the GOP a lot of ammunition.

It doesn't matter what our Dear Leader says or does from now to November 6th, this election is a referendum on him and his policies. Unemployment over 8% for 42 straight months pretty much says it all.
