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.
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.
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
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
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
OK, bitch is a strong word. And of course you know I don't mean a female dog... but I use it to convey a description that I think almost everyone will understand. I did not use it to be offensive... so if it does offend...
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...
There are people who strongly contend that the witch hunt against Hillary Clinton regarding past scandals & e-mail escapades are because she is a woman. They maintain that Hillary Clinton is more than...
I would say that the odds are that Hillary Clinton will run for President in 2016. I don't think her ego will allow her to do otherwise.Now to my mind, the moment Hillary announces her candidacy it will be a forgone...
