A bold move like that would bring many benefits and no negatives. We know the Clintons are the dirtiest players in the game (in a good way of course)and that's what might be needed to keep the white house and the senate and have a shot at regaining the house.
Obama is too wimpish to purposely stand up for himself and fight for reelection. The only option he has is to fire Joe Biden and make history. Obama isafraid of making history. Hilliary would bring in another 5 million votes. Otherwise, Obama loses to the Romney SuperPAC machine which will contol the election dialogue. That said, count on seeing Romney in the White House. He will do anything to get elected. Obama will not.
Obama had Bin Laden killed, passed health care overhaul, told Iran what;s up, sent in a SEAL Team on daring rescues and so on. Yeah real wimp and scared to make history.
Told Iran, yeah that's why they returned our plane instead of the Pink model of the drone. Iran is so scared of Obama

People who voted for Obama have waited 3.5 years for him to make some big moves. He has failed to exercise the full powers of the presidency. He failed to push his health plan to the public. To fire Joe Biden and hire Hillary as V.P. is just too big a move for Obama. He does not have the will power to win reelection, kind of like Carter.
Yeah I have to agree with Paul things like healthcare, getting rid of don't ask don't tell and being the first president to support gay marriage do not give me the feeling that Obama is scared to make history.
All I'm saying is that if Obama wants to make history, he has to run Hillary Clinton as V.P. and put Joe Biden aside. That would bring out the female vote and make history--the first female V.P. Otherwise, it's over for Obama in January. With the healthcare law shot down by the Supremes he has no legacy. Without Hillary, the billionaires Super PACs will rouse up the hate-Obama crowd into such a frenzy that they will overwhelm Obama in the election.
I disagree with your analysis. There is nothing to indicate that Obama dumping Biden for Hillary Clinton would "bring out the female vote." That is the same sexist thinking that led McCain to choose a female running mate thinking that women would not actually notice that she was pretty but stupid. Women vote on the issues just as much as men do, if not more. Obama already has the female vote, due to the ongoing hysteria of male Republican politicians over women's issues.
the importance of having hillary as vp in my opinion is the fact that it would solidly unify the party in which there are two centers of power the clinton and the obama and it would also bring in the power players who are now not supporting obama in their full potential.
It is a testament of how things are in the Democrat Party that she did not resign after the midterm elections and openly run against him for President. I was actually a little disappointed. Then I realized that she was just being a good Democrat. This also points out a big difference in the parties.
A Democrat will not openly challenge another on the national level. They are too lock step for that. That and the fact if Hilary had opposed him the label of RACIST! would have immediately been pinned to her lapel like a scarlet letter.
The Democrats fear that punishment worse than any other...even though the Party is responsible for more racism than anyone else.
Oh for sure and I have been meaning to write a hub about the three families.
was not ted kennedy a democrat and didn't he run against a sitting democratic president?than how can you say that a democrat won't openly challenge a democrat openly?
so you 're saying in every election a democrat should challenge a sitting president? that doesn't make sense the democrats are no more in lockstep than a republican party that is being held hostage and driven into demise by a minority of right wing loons that control the base of the party
Replacing his running mate after a first term would be viewed as a weakness, and the RNC knows this. That's why they've (re)created this meme.
Relax, conservatives: you can turn around 180 degrees in 4 years when Hilary runs for president, and then claim she's evil and even worse than Obama. If you forget to do so, FoxNews will remind you.
funny you should mention this because i remember when clinton was president an how he was opposed the same way obama is now and how he would go down as the worst president in history an now all of a sudden they often praise him and say how much better than obama he was
People should not underestimate Obama.
Hillary did in the 2008 primaries.
Hillary for VP!
It's about time we had someone with Balls as VP!
I think hillary as vp now would ensure over a decade of democrats in the white house.
Well wouldn't her being President have an even greater effect?
Why shouldn't she run for President?
she will in due time;but she is too intelligent and savvy to do that now , which could turn out bad when she knows she is probably the most liked and respected politician in the country and the presidency is hers for the taking when she runs in 2016
As soon as she becomes the Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, she will be disrespected and vilified by conservatives once again.

Senator Clinton and the Clinton machine keeps going and going and going....If senator Clinton is holding out to become VP, Obama should not leave his drink behind if she is the only person in that room. I am ashamed to be a woman. We are stronger and better than this. I was all for the first woman...

her? Why? Why not? Ms. Clinton seem to have the best qualifications for president. She also has political experience and is a quite savvy person?

Be it not for me to speak ill of a fellow Democrat, but Hillary Clinton disappoints. Please read the articles, I confess that Salon is a left leaning publication, but I have included the article placed by H. Clinton in the Times of Israel to provide a little heft to my position.Bernie has courage...
