Senator Biden to Quit, Hillary to Become Obama’s VP?
Canana Free Press ^ | 9-12-08 | Sean Osborne

Posted on 09/12/2008 2:17:33 PM PDT by frankjr

This report may be be breaking news of immense national political importance as a direct result of what the NEIN Blog has previously described as “The Palin Effect.”

According to a an exclusive source close to the Northeast Intelligence Network, the possibility exists for a major change to the Democrat presidential campaign of Barack Obama. Our source, citing other highly reliable sources, states that Senator Joe Biden will withdraw as the Democrat Vice-Presidential candidate, possibly due to some imminent medical emergency. These sources go on to state that negotiations have occured between Barack Obama and Bill Clinton to replace Senator Biden on the ticket with Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.

While many Hillary supporters would return to the fold most of America would see this as a desperate move and would judge it as such. The Dems are stupid but not this stupid.

The “EAGLETON OPTION” Would be the Death of his Campaign.

it would go DIRECTLY to his judgement, and Sarah Palin would come off as MUCH, MUCH less abrasive than Hillary would!!

Well, it’s always possible. Dems are pretty stupid.

But it would fail miserably. It’s one of those “screwed if you don’t, more screwed if you do” sort of things.

Technically I don’t think it can be since the DEM Convention nominated the two, Obama/Biden, and that’s what on various State’s ballots.

That said ... it is the Dems and they pretty much do what ever they want, so a Obama/H. Clinton ticket is their over-ride they’ll do it. (Remember Howard Dean and the Primary fiasco’s of FL and MI).

But my money would be on Hillary returning to the Senate to wait for 2012 and kick Harry Reid to the curb to be assume the duties of and be coronated as the Majority Leader (or Minority Leader depending on the November elections).

it’s a losing proposition for her. If he wins, she’s stuck as VP for 4 to 8 years. If he loses, she’s a loser too.

Even before Palin I was thinking McCain by 8-10% nationally. Most people don't even start thinking politics 'til October, and it's easy to get caught up in paying attention to the talking heads...which is, after all, what they're there for.

I'd truly love to see Obama join McGovern and Mondale on the smouldering ash-heap of history. Of course, there'd be riots because America had proven itself a racist nation. It's not enough that Obama got the nomination...he's owed the Presidency.

I dunno. Obama’s just about done as it is. Dumping Biden and bringing Hillary onto the ticket just might work for the donks. In fact, it might be their ONLY chance to win. Don’t forget the American people’s increasingly short attention span. Obama does this, and in 3 weeks, people will say “Biden who?”

Actually, if she signed on and the ticket fails in a close one, she will benefit as the ONLY viable dem candidate in 2012. She is probably seriously considering it at this very moment. And feckless Barry’s visit to sinkEmperor’s lair in Harlem is a good indication that something is in the works.

C'mon, we can make it more Machiavellian than that. Biden talks with Obama and Hillary. Gets Obama's approval and Clinton's promise to stay low for a week as Biden resigns for health reasons. Clinton, as women are wont to do, decides that she does not want to run for VP but wishes Obama well in November. Ta da.

Obama sinks further and the Clintons urge all good Democrats to stick with the Party until its over. Obama loses every state, including Illinois - Clintons re-appear in '12 and Obama, Rev. Wright and others form the new Black Panther Party. Real conservatives learn a lesson and start to act properly. I really must stop drinking.

I'm certain that the obama team is discussing this and that this was the reason for the bubba-obama meeting yesterday.

If they do try this it had better be tonight or by Sunday at the latest. By next week everyone will have heard the rumors and the 'medical reasons' explanation won't fly.

The only thing such speculation coming from Democrats tells me is that internal polling much be far worse than what we’re seeing in public. Far worse.

I still don’t buy it. It’s the kiss of death to a campaign to change running mates mid-stream. The public will look at Obama as indecisive and a poor judge of men. Not the person one wants in the WH.

Yeah, yeah, I know. Don’t underestimate Democrats. Well, I don’t. I’m simply very, no highly skeptical. Could it happen? Sure. Will the public buy medical reasons? Nah. There’s the rub.

In that case, could you confirm that the surprise replacement choice for Joe Biden is Walter Mondale?

Keep in mind that political pressure drives politics - especially Democratic politics that sway like the wind to and fro.

It IS possible for Obama to dump Biden. Hillary absolutely still wants to be President in 09, and getting “back” onto the Obama ticket (haha) is definitely in her interest, even if it isn’t in his.

If Obama continues to plummet, he’s going to lose even more former Hillary supporters he was hoping to turn to his side.
He may not WANT to make a switch, but I could easily see PUMA’s and Hillary forcing Biden to exit if they can drive a powerful enough argument (to them) that OB will lose if he doesn’t.

He will lose if Hillary is not on the ticket. Simple as that. Only way he win is with Hillary, because then it’s a complete liberal man and woman vs. conservative man and woman fight.

Too late. Sarah has upended their entire apple cart. In addition, at this point, Hillary would be crazy to take the risk...she will probably wait until 2012.

The more the Obama, MSM and DNC try to either smear, besmirch, or twist Sarah Palin's words and experience, the more people all over the country will be drawn to her.

It's because of something the left and the elite cannot understand and are blind to.

Sarah connects with everyday people. She was mother who wanted to make a difference in her community and joined the PTA and it went from there. She didn't need an ivy league degree in Political Science, she didn't need a law degree, she didn’t need rich connections, she just needed honesty, integrity, her faith, and a desire to serve.

She didn't seek wealth, power, or high position...it just happened and that connects with most Americans of all stripes (outside of the leftists and elitists whom she threatens) who in their hearts want to try and help their communities and improve things for their kids.
