Robert Reich Predicts Hillary Clinton Will Replace Biden as VP on 2012 Obama Reelection Ticket


Obama’s political shell game …

Robert Reich predicts Hillary Clinton will be in and Joe Biden out as VP on Obama’s 2012 Presidential reelection ticket. This is certainly not something that we have not heard rumored or speculated before. However, according to Reich he has no inside-baseball information to come to this conclusion, only a hunch. Reich states that Obama needs to stir the passions and enthusiasms of a disillusioned Democratic base and an increasing poor economy.

Check out the look of disdain on Hillary’s face as she gazes at Obama

My political prediction for 2012 (based on absolutely no inside information): Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden swap places. Biden becomes Secretary of State — a position he’s apparently coveted for years. And Hillary Clinton, Vice President.

So the Democratic ticket for 2012 is Obama-Clinton.

Why do I say this? Because Obama needs to stir the passions and enthusiasms of a Democratic base that’s been disillusioned with his cave-ins to regressive Republicans. Hillary Clinton on the ticket can do that.

Bill Clinton calls Obama a media driven fairy tale

In other words Reich is saying that Obama needs to create a diversion and to play a political shell game so that “We the People” will pay more attention to a change rather than the failed “Hope & Change” that Obama promised. Let alone a continued poor economy that has millions of Americans out of work. Barack Obama obviously cannot run on his record … so Reich wants Obama to play political diversion games. How nice. Reich then goes on to say that this would set up Hillary Clinton to be the 2016 Democrat Presidential candidate.

Of course this presumes that an Obama/Cinton ticket would win.

Explain how this could co-exist in the White House?

One, does Hillary Clinton really want to put all her political eggs in Obama’s basket and run on the Obama economy and Obamacare? Two, could Obama and Hillary Clinton really get along, add Bill to the mix. Talk about the political “Odd Couple”.  Three, does anyone really think that Joe Biden is the reason why Obama’s job approval numbers are so low? Biden has done everything for this President including selling his soul and acting the fool, even more so than usual. Four, imagine the political ads against Obama/Clinton taken from their 2008 primary battles. Five, does Obama have the ability, humility and personality to accept that he is the problem and Hillary Clinton is his Savior? Hardly, many had suggested Obama not run for a second term for the betterment of the party. That was never an option for Obama’s ego. Barack Obama has continually shot down the notion that Clinton and Biden would swap jobs. If he makes such a flip-flop now, it would show just how politically weak “The One” truly is. Also, he would be, if elected, a neutered President and everyone would know who really worse the “pantsuit” in the Oval Office.

      When Hilliary Clinton was a Presidential candidate running again Barack Obama … she did not hesitate in her undermining of Obama’s far-left connections … far left connection that implied that a Marxist was running for the highest office in the land uner the Democrat banner.

      The Pennsylvania Democratic Debate

      MR. STEPHANOPOULOS: … I want to give Senator Clinton a chance to respond, but first a follow-up on this issue, the general theme of patriotism in your relationships. A gentleman named William Ayers, he was part of the Weather Underground in the 1970s. They bombed the Pentagon, the Capitol and other buildings. He’s never apologized for that. And in fact, on 9/11 he was quoted in The New York Times saying, “I don’t regret setting bombs; I feel we didn’t do enough.”

      An early organizing meeting for your state senate campaign was held at his house, and your campaign has said you are friendly. Can you explain that relationship for the voters, and explain to Democrats why it won’t be a problem?

      SEN. OBAMA: … This is a guy who lives in my neighborhood, who’s a professor of English in Chicago, who I know and who I have not received some official endorsement from. He’s not somebody who I exchange ideas from on a regular basis.

      SEN. CLINTON: Well, I think that is a fair general statement, but I also believe that Senator Obama served on a board with Mr. Ayers for a period of time, the Woods Foundation, which was a paid directorship position.

      And if I’m not mistaken, that relationship with Mr. Ayers on this board continued after 9/11 and after his reported comments, which were deeply hurtful to people in New York, and I would hope to every American, because they were published on 9/11 and he said that he was just sorry they hadn’t done more. And what they did was set bombs and in some instances people died.

      Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)

      “Back in 1927, an American socialist, Norman Thomas, six times candidate for President on the Socialist Party ticket, said that the American people would never vote for socialism but he said under the name of liberalism the American people would adopt every fragment of the socialist program.

      Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it on to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

      That would be an unbeatable team but Obama wouldn’t do that to Biden unless Biden wanted to.
      SM: Obama would not do it because his EGO would not allow him to. He would never admit that he needs Hillary to win an election. Never would a Prez want a more powerful and respected VP, especially this guy.

      I would really doubt that it would ever occur. You cant have two powerful personalities like that and throw in Bill Clinton as well. It would be a fiasco.

      it would be the best thing that could happen to our country, just like the 90′s when President Clinton was President.
      SM: See how bad Obama is, people think Hillary is a great alternative.
