No, this is probably a meeting to discuss Syria. 0 is too arrogant to ever change his course on anything. Biden is, as hard as this is to believe, considered the “Foreign Policy Brains” of the Administration.

Hillary wants a shot at the big seat in 2016. Don't believe she'll replace Gaffin' Joe this time.

Please don’t let this happen. It will totally get the Democrats to the polls in droves and that is the LAST thing we want.

Uh, as VP she could start her 2016 campaign in January 2013 using Air Force 2 instead of paying her own way.

Actually bringing on Klinton would be the smartest thing Obama could ever do at this point. This is something we need to be VERY VERY concerned with . She will bring bIG votes with her.
If we had any brains we’d be preparing her destruction ahead of time. The second Obama chooses her we should have 100 news conferences pointing out every skeleton she has has ( and there are plenty)
I’ve said it fir years Klintons are still VERY dangerous

I truly believe this is going to happen.
Hillary will replace Biden.

I see a “cardiac event” in Biden’s immediate future, or the overwhelming need to “spend more time with his family.”

A day after Obama shot down Palin's suggestion to replace the gaffer with HRC.

Of course Biden could come down with an illness, Obama's sick of him.

As if Zero would transparently have a meeting to discuss a deal with the Clintons. If this happens, the deal was already locked up in secrecy, Chicago back-room-style.

It really would be a game changer if Obama got rid of the crazy old uncle in the attic with the ever popular (do nothing but fly around the world) super Progressive Hillary.

I don't know why our folks are putting this out there (Palin, McCain, etc.). Maybe its a double dare to stop the swap - how could the One make the change if the Repubs were the ones who recommended it? It would be a sign of weakness.

Still, I'd much rather have Ryan debate Biden. It is so close now, she could actually hurt us.

So, if Obama is allowed to change his VP, do Repubs get to “flip” their ticket to RYAN/romney? It only seems fair. And we all know how much Obama loves “fairness.”

Ah, a meeting of ‘great minds’ in the oval office.

Biden will no doubt contribute a lot of his magnificent ‘fluking’ ideas. Monica will be there crawlng under the desk to demonstrate her skills, while Bill, unsatisfied, trots off to the oval office washroom in order to masturbate into the sink.

The greatest mind, that of Fearless Leader, will talk about his future plans, after having won a second term by nefarious means, to finish off the middle class, pretty much as Stalin did with the Ukrainians. He’ll expound on his ideas to manacle every business, every man woman or child: legal or illegal to his Central Socialist Government.

This will be a repulsive meeting of three rotten apples and one uslurper.

Won't happen. Palin publicly advised Obama to switch to Hillary. You know how that would look now? And they say Palin is stupid? I say genius.

“Uh, as VP she could start her 2016 campaign in January 2013 using Air Force 2 instead of paying her own way.”

Unless Obama loses, then she will be tainted as a loser. What is there to gain for her? The nomination is hers in 2016 VP or not.
If Obama wins, she will be running for 12 years of Democratic rule, a hard sell.

Its in her and Bill’s advantage for Obama to lose in 2012.

This. Moreover, dumping Biden for Hillary would be an admission that his first term has been a failure.

It’s certainly not something that the Dems haven’t thought of themselves, so the double-dare theory may be in effect.

Vice-presidential candidates mean very little. When little Dickie Cheney chose himself as Dubya’s running mate, the media celebrated it as a bad choice which it was because they thought Dubya was doomed with that CFR Rockefeller Republican alabatross who was chief of staff in the Ford Rockefeller administration, but swing and independent voters could have cared less about little Dickie and they chose a progeny from the elitist Bush family over the progeny from the elitist Gore family.

Hillary might help Obama a little in the midwest in that she is not as much of a condescending elitist as Obama and Biden and could campaign in Indiana and knock Crown Royale boilermakers in Indiana as she did in the 08 primaries but positive photo ops in Indiana are worthless to the Democrats just as positive photo ops by Mittens in Massachusetts are worthless to Republicans.

Joe Biden is NOT the reason not to vote for Obama just as Governor Ryan as Biden refers to him is NOT the reason to vote for Mittens.

The maddening choice is a simple one found at the top of the ticket. The elitist devil you have grown to know over the last four years or the elitist devil that you don’t know quite as well.

When Sarah Palin made that statement yesterday about how Obama should drop Biden for Hillary, I knew something was brewing. The only reason Palin would say something like that was the hope that maybe Obama might back away from doing it if it looked like the idea was coming from her.

If this happens, it will make it tougher for Romney/Ryan to win the women vote. On the other hand, might make it a lot easier for blue-collar males (the Reagan Democrats) to come over to our side. As well, the black voters won't be too thrilled to see Hillary on the ticket, still some bad feeling from the 2008 campaign.

It will put her in line for President next time around. I’m sure BIG money and BIG
favors will change hands The Klintons are SCUM .
This is THE smartest thing Obama can do now. Actually it will be the call of his handlers (Soros and co.) and NOT his call at all.

Hillary wants a shot at the big seat in 2016.

OR, if anything happened to Oboma, she'd be president immediately. She wouldn't have to wait to run in 2016. By then, she'd be the incumbent - harder to defeat.

(BTW, Hillary also tried a fascist take over of our health care system. She's no different than Oboma.)

Well at least we should be able to agree that in the event she does get on board, Obama and the Clinton's would have to be pretty confident they've got an ace up their sleeve and that he's not going to lose this fall.

I disagree, during 2008 it was the white vote she was taking from Obama. That will carry through during this campaign. It would make it much harder for Romney in Ohio and Wisconsin.
