      Billary as VP would definitely amplify the odds of an Obama victory.


      I do think that the Clinton political machine would prefer a presidential run in 2016 against an incumbent Romney.

        Yeah, ol' Joe is a gaffe machine. I think Hil could definitely boost Obama. She still has a lot of loyal supporters, and many moderates like Bill.

      I doubt it, but Biden keeps making verbal gaffes so maybe Obama will send him on a special ambassador mission to Antartica.

      If I were the president I wouldn't want Hil to be my VP.  She has a grudge against him and really wants his position.   He would be in the way.
      As to whether or not he is throwing Bidden under the bus, I wouldn't be surprised.

    I doubt it. Obama has a reputation of disloyalty, and I think he knows it. I think he'll keep old Joe.

    No chance of dumping Joe, just going to tell him to stop talking. As far as Hillary, she's way too smart to take VP spot. The meeting is for Obama to be able to blame Hillary if this Iran thing blows up before the election. Could be interesting meeting...the two sharks, Hillary and BO and the guy sitting in the corner with the glazed over look in his eyes.

      Make Joe stop talking? They'll need a BIG muzzle!

        LOL, I suspect Joe will be given some hugely important assignment for the next 75 days. You know, like a mission to Timbuktu to resolve the west Nile mosquito crisis.

    Maybe this POTUS could just point old Joe, his personal loaded cannon, in another direction? Joe's just another example of Obama's judgment as far as I'm concerned (and that's not meant to start an argument -- just my opinion!)

    Maybe Romney and Biden can get together and form the gaffe team? lmao

      lol Yeah, but Romney can't replace himself. Obama has the option of replacing Joe.

    I have a feeling Obama will want it to be an amicable split. Biden probably knows far too much to throw him under the bus.

    With Hillary involved, Biden may want to avoid long walks in any D.C. parks any time soon.

    If they wait, Joe will eventually find a bus and stumble under it. I'm sure he's a great insider for Washington, but he's an accident waiting to happen. If Obama wants to time it right, he can just have Joe give a speech at a Transit center. Joe will stumble along with his foot in his mouth, trip off a curb, and it will be a fait accompli.

    I've been secretly hoping Obama would swap jobs between HC and JB.
    JB can't do any worse out there in the world than Romney!
    But agree, assuming HC is eyeing 2016 (and of COURSE she is!) she would prefer to come in as fixer of Romney's disaster.

      She can still do that even if she takes the VP position for now.
      Bill Clinton called Obama and Hillary the "dream time" in June of 2008 when it became clear that she can't win the nomination. Hillary wants to "make history" and being the first American VP will do just that, without preventing her from running in 2016

        I meant the first American woman as VP

          It has been suggested that Hillary would have a better shot in 2016 running against a failed Romney than after four more years of Obama.
          And that makes sense to me.

            I would prefer that rather than taking a chance with 4 years of Romney

        She would be forced to defend Obamapolicy in 2016 if she is VP!   She does not want to have to explain that to the American people.

    God, I hope he's going to throw Biden under the bus; the man is a certifiable idiot of the highest order. If there were a fool's version of MENSA, he would be its highest ranking member!

    Is Joe Biden racist?
    I must admit, when I saw his "back in chains" comment my first interpretation was NOT that he mean the audience would be put back into slavery chains.
    What I thought he mean was that with the Wall Street banks being UNCHAINED that they (the banks) would own/control/chain up the public.

      That was my impression, too. I thought he was suggesting that Wall Street do not like any kind of regulation and if Romney was Prez Wall street would be free from any kind of restrictions. When he said they'd have you all in chains, I thought he was referring to the recent past. You know, homeowners losing their jobs and properties and becoming dependent on welfare and programs- dependent on the unshackled, in order to survive.

    I agree with Mighty Mom.  Joe Biden stated what he and many others think of as a factual statement.  I don't believe Joe Biden has a racial streak in him anywhere.  He is known for not using the better choice of words sometimes, and not meaning any harm by it.  The important thing is, to his ordience, no harm was taken.
