Hillary Rodham Clinton says being presidentís running mate as likely as competing in Olympics
boston.com ^ | April 18, 2012 | Glen Johnson

Hillary Rodham Clinton has been on a bit of a roll lately.

First, the secretary of state was the focus of a weeklong Internet rage, “Texts with Hillary,” that showed a stock photo of her exchanging spoof text messages with various people.

Then, on Saturday night, she was seen dancing and drinking a beer with a group of bodyguards and aides at the Cafe Havana to toast the impending end of the Summit of the Americas in Cartagena, Colombia.

Today, CNN’s Wolf Blitzer interviewed her for his program, “The Situation Room,” after he accompanied her and Defense Secretary Leon Panetta to a NATO meeting in Brussels, Belgium.

Blitzer and Clinton had a humorous exchange over the possibility of President Obama dumping Vice President Joe Biden and picking her as his running mate if it appears he is going to lose his reelection campaign this fall.

Blitzer: “If the president of the United States says, ‘Madam Secretary, I need you on the ticket this year in order to beat Romney,’ are you ready to run as his vice presidential running mate?”

Clinton: “That is not going to happen. That’s like saying, ‘If the Olympic Committee called you up and said are you ready to run the marathon, would you accept?’ Well, it’s not going to happen.”

Blitzer: “I disagree.”

Clinton: “Oh, well.”

Blitzer: “I think it is possible. It’s unlikely. You will say that -”

Clinton: “It’s more than unlikely.”

Blitzer: “If he needs, if he sees in July that he’s going down, he doesn’t want to be a one-term president.”

What a bunch of bull. Hillary is a shoo-in. Biden is history.

Thanks for the laughs.

I’ve been trying to figure out what she has done as SOS that is worth her airfare?

What? There must be something - and I”m not being sarcastic.

If by the time of the convention Obama’s numbers aren’t any better than now Biden is history.

So putting Hillary on the ticket will reduce unemployment? gas prices? food prices?

I think she more than qualifies.

She’s added a lot to her off shore bank accounts.

And lived high on the hog.

And drank a lot.

And done nothing toward the good of the United States.

And......

Hillary Rodham Clinton...

Hillary Rodham Clinton?

Not just "Hillary Clinton" like it's been for three years?

You know what the three-named-name means, doncha?

That's right: attention all soccer-witchettes - she's running.

Hildegarde may be betting on a premature evacuation of Obumster in his 2nd term.

No, but they think it will shore up the women’s vote and pull in the moderates. I’ve been predicting this. Even said so on another thread earlier today.

If ugly were an Olympic sport, then Hillary would be a gold medal winner

But seriously....if she were going through a job review...there must be something that she can list as an accomplishment as SOS - but I can’t think of anything.

There must be something!

In the eyes of our enemies, she’s done well.

The former Thighsman trophy winner is sandbagging. After all the rolling pins & ashtrays she’s chucked at Bill, she could do discus or the hammer throw.
