Hillary Clinton: Biden Her Time
There still seems to be an idea out there that somehow Vice President Joe Biden is going to leave the 2012 Democratic ticket — by his own choice or
otherwise — and be replaced by Hillary Clinton, the secretary of state who has long said she will depart the Cabinet after President Obama's first
Former Delaware Gov. Pete du Pont thinks so, but what does he know?
Bob Woodward's comments on CNN last year that a Biden-for-Clinton switch was "on the table" were met with an unsurprising ton of eye-rolling in
Washington. There was rumors of a move to dump Spiro Agnew from the 1972 GOP ticket and Dan Quayle's job was said to be in jeopardy 20 years later.
But both men stayed.
The thing is, no elected VP has been dropped from the ticket since 1944, when Henry Wallace was removed at the national convention that year in favor
of Sen. Harry Truman (D-Mo.). And that turned out to be extremely significant, as President Franklin Roosevelt was dead less than three months after
he was inaugurated for a fourth term.
Now if the Romney team believes this rumors, then we can expect them to follow suit. If they act on this rumor it could force the issue with Team
Obama and thus become a self-fulfilling prophesy. Not likely you say, well maybe not, but they this is ATS right? What else is there to talk about.
Just saying =/
