Won't work if Oboma/Clinton signs are already being printed. Someone, somewhere, will talk for the right price.

Read “The Amateur”. Bill Clinton HATES Obama. Thinks he’s an idiot. He wanted Hillary to run against Obama for the nomination this year. Hillary wants to wait till 2016. If Hillary Clinton were to replace Biden, and he was to actually win a second term, if I was Obama, I would be afraid, very afraid.

Well if he does that he will win.

It’s over. No one will care about “desperation” 3 months later come election day, and I’m sorry but even if you try you cannot deny Hillary will likely give him OH and PA and probably even FL which means the election is over.

The whole idea of replacing Biden with Hildabeast was fine while Palin was the one suggesting it. It pretty much tied the hands of the democRATS since it was her idea.

But now big mouth McCain has spoken up. Axelrod is now tying McCain to the idea so its no longer Palin saying it.

We are getting screwed by McCain again. Cant he just STFU.

If anything happens, Biden will step down. Health, family concerns, etc., will be the excuse.

Hillary is soon to be 65, Joe will be 70. When the next election arrives that’ll be 69 and 74....not too young for either of them to consider another run at the presidency.

I do think Biden’s ego is big enough to think he has a real shot at it IF he keeps the VP seat.

Hillary would want some kind of deal that takes Biden out of it. My guess is that she wishes for a Biden loss, because that will injure him next time around. She really doesn’t want to face a 2-time successful VP intent on running in 2016.

Obama had to make some kind of deal to get Hillary to be SecState and Bill to be his speaker at the convention.

That deal could be direct: Biden agrees not to run if he gets to be VP both times around. History would be the only reason to do this; that and a big travel budget perhaps. It could involve family members getting perks.

That deal could be covert: Obama dumps Biden and picks up Hillary.

OMG Miami hockey games are a blast and they have a great conference.

I'm pretty confident that my observations and experiences about Miami/Ohioans/OSU and good relations all around...it may be in part due to the fact that there's a good deal of overlap within families and between childhood friends...who by nature already just seem to be well-adjusted all around. The two achools--to me as an out-of-stater observant--aren't viewed as "head-to-head." They seem to all get along. Another good Ohio school is Denison. Good kids. To know Ohioans is to like them. It's true.

I seriously doubt Hillary would step in as a step toward presidential aspirations for 2016. I believe she is 61-62 now, and looks very tired.

It is not about Hillary, it is about the Clinton crime family. This is about Bill Clinton's third term and Serpent Head Carville's return from exile.

I also think that Hillary is directly tied to this administration since she is the SoS. She has to answer to this administration and it’s record. Finally, if you look at her record as SoS, she has made the Middle East more unstable than ever before. She is a failure.

Or as I’ve always said, “There’s nothing more dangerous than a MOTIVATED STUPID PERSON.” And I’ve known a few. I actually think 0bama isn’t intelligent. People misconstrue his speaking skills for intellect. Jetting all the way to Copenhagen in his failed and EXPENSIVE bid to ‘win Rio’ was sheer stupidity. He could’ve sent one of his minions to do that but he sincerely believed he could get Rio just by showing up.

Biden has made a lot of stupid comments lately ... even by Biden's standards.

Maybe they'll claim he's suffered from a mini stroke or some other ailment that impairs his capacity to remain as Veep.

Oh, and SFF, I wouldn’t put any stock in a countdown to a deadline. Remember Toricelli in NJ? It was well past the deadline for him to get out and be replaced on the ballot, but that didn’t stop that NJ judge from ruling otherwise. Ergo, we got stuck ... again ... with the cadaver, Frank Lautenberg.

I think you ar SO right, TMA.

Also, I think that she's long-past seen her fifteen minutes as a "cool female renegade" within her league, and lacks the vibrance needed to fire up a NEW crop of disgruntled PUMAs or pretty-people young liberal women.

Anymore, she (sadly) presents as a long-in-the-tooth (figuratively, mainly,) unengaged, bloated and perpetually half-in-the-bag, bumbling (like you said,) bowling ball.

She just kinda awkwardly wobbles down the lane and gutters out...in a long-empty bowling alley.

I think you missed the point of my comment; so let me give it again. There is a big issue/matter of what is going on in the world physically and politically. The USA is involved to a more or less degree and depending on who says what or proposes that the issues are very very serious. Hillary and even to some extent Obama have far more public perception/experience of world experience than Romney and Ryan. Obama might,he is a tricky guy, just try to shift the campaign emphasis and debates from the Nation’s economic conditions to the world affairs conditions. It wouldn’t surprise me if VP debates with media hosts would be shifted to world affairs. Palin and others should know, and probably do, what they are are hatching.

Yea but she don’t stand a prayer in 2016 as VP after 8 years of Obama destroying the economy. The full effects of Obamacare will be there, there will be no job growth.

I think her odds are better if Romney/Ryan win this time, and she challenges them in 2016.

And Joe doesn't have the power grabbing egotistical blood running through him the way the Clintoons have. Zero doesn't want to have to jockey for power with any of the Clintoons.

Gaffe-o-matic Joe, on the other hand, makes Zero look good by contrast.

Why in the world has Sarah Palin, of all people, been going around suggesting Biden should go, and Hillary should be made Obamugabe's VP?? That will probably destroy Romney-Ryan, thus destroying our country over the next four years.

I’m not so sure Hillary’s “record” as SoS will matter to many voters, simply because she was just employing Obama’s policies across the world (barf).

Look at how old Nancy Pelosi is - Hillary will not be outdone or discouraged by age. The recent news film of her dancing in Africa has meanings beyond. She will run for President in 2016 and something will happen with Obama to take him back to Kenya where he can be a real king. In the meantime, she stays in her place...like a poison lizard warming up.

Hillary is yesterday’s news and has been a powerless, confused and gaffe-prone SOS. Obama has humiliated her so many times that she looks like a complete fool, and while Bill might step up to help her, I think his magic is gone, too. They’d be popular with the Dem Hollywood elite and blacks, but Obama is already popular with those groups.

Also, they’re just too old to get much enthusiasm going. It’s not even their years, but their attitudes. And Hillary is a terrible speaker and not a pleasant personality.

So I don’t think there’s any reason to panic over Hillary.

A person from one of the Security Council's permanent members (US, UK, France, Russia, China) cannot serve as Secretary-General.

If that is Zero's dream, he's outtaluck.

The stricture is not in the UN Charter but is an agreed-upon article of faith in the UN.

“Biteme” Biden resigns to go into rehab and star in next season’s ‘Celebrity rehab with Dr. Drew’.

Obama/hildabeast ticket wins in landslide.

“Unexpectedly”, a week after obozo is sworn in, indisputable proof that he is inelgible to be President and an alien lizard to boot, is found in Ft. Marcy Park.

Hildabeast orders Janet Gestapilano to remove obozo from office. Hildabeast, Huma, and Janet enjoy a group grope at DHS headquarters.
