Wasserman Schultz: Clinton 'absolutely' won't be on 2012 ticket
The Hill ^ | January 3, 2012 | Daniel Strauss

Posted on 01/03/2012 4:33:40 PM PST by jazusamo

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.), in no uncertain terms, shot down the possibility that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton would be on the 2012 Democratic presidential ticket alongside President Obama.

Wasserman Schultz said "absolutely" that Obama would run with Vice President Biden in 2012.

"I'm a hundred percent confident that Joe Biden and Barack Obama are gonna run together as a team," the chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee said Tuesday on MSNBC.

She said "no" directly in response to a straight question as to whether Clinton would be on the ticket instead of Biden.

Clinton has repeatedly said she plans to leave public service after her stint as secretary of State. Nevertheless, speculation has continued that Obama could regain some of the supporters he's lost during his first term by replacing Biden with Clinton.

Biden himself has shown no sign of leaving his current role and has also refused to definitively close the door on a 2016 presidential run. He's said he wants to focus on reelecting Obama right now and then face the 2016 question later on.

Relative to other Democrat possibilities for Vice President, Hillary Clinton is looking pretty damn good right about now.

She isn’t looking all that bad when compared to some of the republicans either...

Which means one of two things. Either she told Barry to take a hike or she’ll be on the 2012 ticket.

I don’t see how adding Hillary as VP helps Obama. Any votes she’d bring with her he’s got already.

Plus Slow Joe is such an asset to the administration.

(I’m done being sarcastic now.)

You’re probably right. I have a hunch though that The Won doesn’t mind having a do nothing VP that puts his foot in his mouth often, it takes some heat off him.

I she has her way, she will be on the Ticket as VP.

Obama would be insane to put her there.

With Hillary as VP, Obama would be out of office and Hillary would be President within a year.

Does this mean she will refuse to seat any delegates that show up wearing “Obama-Clinton” campaign buttons?

That she will declare any motion to put Hillary’s name in nomination for VP out of order?

She should make it more clear whether she’s speaking as DNC Chairwoman or expressing her personal policy preference.

Well, that guarantees she will be Obama’s VP candidate since you can’t believe a word she says...and, it depends on the DEFINITION of TICKET.

Don’t believe it. First of all, she’s (Hitlery) a stinking liar. She wouldn’t’ve recently gone through another face lift and spackle/putty on her face if she weren’t getting back in.

And if the illegal alien in our White House puts her on the ticket, he better watch out: Many, many people have died because of the Clintonistas.

She should be in prison for all the felonies she committed in our White House years ago, and her very public and loud anti-Semetic hatred of the Jews (one would think) would doom her (But we all know that the Jewish vote is still in the hands of the muslim in the White House (who’d slice their very heads off if he could) and the POS wife of the Jew hating Clintons.

Yee Gads!

That’s right. Biden is the reason we dislike the present government so much. The president has nothing to do with it.

In Democrat-speak, since McGovern said he would back Eagleton “1000%”, that means it's about 1/10 as likely that Biden will be on the ticket as that Eagleton would be on the 1972 ticket.

Obama-Clinton 2012 -- has anyone bought the domain name?

You mean that he'd be found in Marcy Park as a suicide, bullet hole in the back of the head with no blood found at the scene, and no dirt or scuff marks on his clothes or shoes? Huh?

I didnt say anything remotely like that, just said that Hillary is looking better than most other Democrat candidates for VP and, as others said, better than numerous Republican candidates as well. That has nothing to do with whether or not we oppose just Biden or Biden and Obama. I am aware that both of them have gotten every kind of opposition there is.

Two years and one day.

Otherwise she can't hold two full terms of her own in addition to the residue of his last term.

I was thinking more along the lines of impeached or resigned, but mysterious, unexplained things do seem to happen to people who, one way or another, get in the way of the Clintons

I’m sure Joe Bob will have a medical issue of some sort that will force him off the ticket.

We shall see.

Of Course Joe Biden will be the VP candidate.

No way could Obama find another stooge as stupid as he.

He is also good insurance, no one wants to see Biden in the WH.

The only thing I would believe from this GUY Debbie Wasserman Schultz would be if HE said: “When I look in the mirror, I see the most ugly person on earth looking back at me”.

Dogface Debbie would be wise to peruse the “Klinton Death List” before declaring that the ‘Beast won’t be on the ticket.

Which means zip.

Hillary will do whatever she thinks it will take to get in - VP, President, whatever.

Whatever.

FYI.......just got word (from a very excellent source) that Biden will be replaced by Hillary. The announcement will be made within a week. Can not imagine that this source would not know what he is talking about. We will see.....
