    Did Hillary say no?

    Did Hillary say no?

    Hillary Clinton had already indicated she would not be open to replacing Joe Biden as VP on the Obama ticket prior to yesterday’s lunch, according to a Washington Examiner report out today.

    At an earlier lunch with Valerie Jarrett, says source, author Ed Klein, Clinton rejected the idea, for fear of being tied to Obama’s far-left policies and that she didn’t want to go down with the Obama ship, were he to lose:

    “As recently as a couple of weeks ago, the White House was putting out feelers to see if Hillary Clinton was interested in replacing Joe Biden on the ticket,” Klein told Secrets. “Bill Clinton, I’m told, was urging his wife to accept the number two spot if it was formally offered. Bill sees the vice presidency as the perfect launching pad for Hillary to run for president in 2016.”

    Yesterday, President Obama met with Biden and Clinton at a lunch, which led to speculation about Obama replacing Biden after his series of gaffes.

    But don’t rule out a future presidential run from Hillary, says Klein:

    Klein has sources deep in the Clinton camp and he said that they said she is eager for a rest followed by a makeover. “She clearly is exhausted. She needs to lose weight and get her energy back for a four-year slog.”

    He added that Obama has never talked to Clinton about replacing Biden. The reason, said Klein, is that Obama was afraid she would turn him down and Bill Clinton would leak the snub to the media.

    Hillary is too smart to take that offer.

    First -given an Obama win- as many have observed, she would be stuck with owning Obamacare. She would also be tarred with whatever other economic foolishness Teh Won would get into during a second term. I seriously doubt he would change his policies very much. That connection would almost certainly kill any chance in ’16, and I think she knows it. Old adminstration stinks cling; look what happened to Gore in 2000; he should have beat Bush like a red-headed stepchild in K-Mart, what with the economy he “inherited.” Yet he lost, no doubt to due the unpleasant after-odor of Slick Willy.

    One of the HillBuzz fellas came up with another reason which had not occurred to me. Assume Hillary accepts the VP slot, and Obama loses. She can read the tea leaves, and she has a good idea of how bad it is (it’s still “the economy, stupid!”). If that happens, she will become the next Sarah Palin. Democrats will revile her as the reason Obama lost the election, just like Country Club Republicans blamed Sarah for the ’08 loss. Consider the irony there. 🙂

    Hillary is already tarred as a shill for the obama administration. I don’t doubt for a moment that everything she did in State was under obama’s orders. She really put herself into a box by taking that slot. The worst decision she ever made was to accept that job. Other than to marry Bill, of course. But that is a political partnership not a marriage and worked out very well for him.

    If obama dumps Joe he will pick an up and coming newcomer from one of the swing states preferbly a hispanic with not much history but good looking. What would be the use of picking someone from a state he already owns. It will be either that or name recognition (a fact that gets the most peopole elected). It will not be anybody from NY or MA. Either one of those would be a turnoff to the swing states. Then again, who knows? Obama did pick Biden, after all and he didn’t pull him down.

    There are some governors that could bolster the ticket but they know how corrupt this administration is and want to keep clean. Even though a vice president has little authority and hence little responsibility, they do sit in on meetings and can not deny criminal knowledge. None want to ruin their life by being part of this chamber of lies, deceit, and abject failure.
