DEMOCRATS CALL FOR CONTINGENCY PLAN TO REPLACE HILLARY CLINTON IF SHE IS UNABLE TO CONTINUE …
Think Democrats aren’t worried about the non-transparency of Hillary Clinton and her campaign as related to her health? The Politico is reporting that Don Fowler, a former Democratic National Committee chairman says President Barack Obama and the party’s congressional leader should come up with a plan as soon as possible in the event that Clinton cannot go forward as the Democrat presidential nominee. Legal Insurrection asks, who would be the candidate if Hillary cannot continue? Two thing is for certain; one, if she has one more of these spells between now and election day, she is to toast. Two, if the Democrat party does replace her and Bernie Sanders gets hosed again by the DNC, all of his peeps will stay home.
However, it is highly unlikely that Hillary would ever drop out of the campaign, because its all about her and she has waited her entire life to be at this moment in time and nothing will stop her.
A former Democratic National Committee chairman says President Barack Obama and the party’s congressional leaders should immediately come up with a process to identify a potential successor candidate for Hillary Clinton for the off-chance a health emergency forces her out of the race.
“Now is the time for all good political leaders to come to the aid of their party,” said Don Fowler, who helmed the DNC from 1995 to 1997, during Bill Clinton’s presidency, and has backed Hillary Clinton since her 2008 presidential bid. “I think the plan should be developed by 6 o’clock this afternoon.”
Fowler said he expects Clinton to fully recover from her bout with pneumonia, which forced her to leave a Sept. 11 memorial event early and cancel an early-week fundraising swing. But he said the Democratic Party would be mistaken to proceed without a contingency plan. The party’s existing rules empower the DNC to name a replacement candidate but include few guidelines or parameters.
“It’s something you would be a fool not to prepare for,” he said in an interview on Monday. He added a note of caution, should Clinton attempt an expeditious return to the campaign trail.
“She better get well before she gets back out there because if she gets back out there too soon, it might happen again,” he said.
