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.

Sounds like some rock solid sourcing.
There’s no way in hell Hillary wants on the ticket, though.
He’s plagarizing Tom Eagleton.
Yeah, Double plus good source.......
I can see Michelle and Hillary schmoozing it up right now.
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.
Tell ya what,eh? I’ve got this bridge in Brooklyn I can sell you real cheap....
Biden/Rodham = Toricelli/Lautenberg
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!!
It’s not going to happen, no chance.
Why would Hillary want to VP for 8 years? she wants to Pres. now.
Maybe Obama will quit and it’ll be Clinton/Biden.
Hoof in mouth disease?
It is if Obama agrees to pay her 22 million dollar debt, it is if Obama agrees to make Bill Clinton Sec. of State, it is if Obama agrees to ...........
“The Dems are stupid but not this stupid.”
I would never “misunderestimate” their stupidity.
Yep. Just like that. Exactly.
Hope you’re right.
No party who ever switched candidates has ever won.
Obama would be cutting his own throat.
>>When I floated that idea HERE and made a suggestion to Team McCain, everyone and his uncle here assured me this could never, never happen.<<
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.
Bill Clinton always did believe in mulligans.
Does Barak want to wear a vest and have an aid taste his food for eight years? Stupid as he is, even Barak knows some things are worse than losing the presidency.
Is “Stand Up” Joe on the campaign trail today? Out in public? If not, this could be true.
Typo: It should be “Canada Free Press” not “Canana Free Press”.
Theres no way in hell Hillary wants on the ticket, though.
Not now, that it’s clear they’re going down.
Is this the “nuclear option” the libs will use when the all out war on Palin’s character fails
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.
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.
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.
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.
FYI: Don’t tell anyone but I am the “exclusive source close to the Northeast Intelligence Network”.
it will hurt hillary future chances if she joins the ticket and then lose together with obama
All it would take is a short trip to Fort Marcy
Rush said it would happen and to give him credit for saying it first.
FYI: Dont tell anyone but I am NOT the exclusive source close to the Northeast Intelligence Network.
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?
Mondale: “Hey, I’m rested, ready, I’ve lost in all 50 states, I got nowhere to go but UP!”
Headline: Obama family comes down with mysterious medical condition.
I think there is a better than 50/50 chance hellery! will replace Biden. It strengthens the ticket and gives the pantsuit a springboard for the next elections should they lose. What do you think bill and barry were talking about when they met???
It will be another 3 am weekend call....
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.
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 didnt 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.
