    I doubt Obama has the courage to dump Biden for Clinton, but I believe that's his best chance if he really wants a 2nd term - IF she would accept it.

    Neither are likely.

    Perry and Bachmann are from the evangelical wing of the party. Their chances of winning would go down substantially. Either as the candidate would pick someone who isn't associated with the social conservatives. Perry/Giuliani is an example.

    well we all know that the GOP will be pushing for Rubio,but I have no idea who is "Plan B" for VP. Rubio just may take the position being he is so angry with obama,he would take the spot just to spite him.(kinda like that classic sienfeld scene!)

    Perry/Cain. No females. Bachmann and Palin need to just GO AWAY.

    Maybe. Or maybe Rubio, if chosen, would accept the VP slot with his eyes on a future Presidential run.

    Perry/Cain would be the best talisman for ensuring that you can vote for them without being called a racist.

    Perry/Rubio would be almost as good and could make a few dedicated libs give them a vote just to prove themselfes simpatico to Hispanics. Guilt is a powerful motivator.

    I think the VP might be Pawlenty. Could be Bachman, reaching for the female vote. Can you imagine the uproar if the GOP nominee chooses Palin? OMG, nothing would energize the Dems more than that. But either Pawlenty or Bachman gives the GOP a better shot at taking Minnesota, which is a swing state.

    If I'm Hillary Clinton I don't want to be on the ballot with Obama. If she still wants another shot she's better off giving it another try in 2016. I'm surprised she's hung around this long as Sec'y of State.

    bachmann and/or perry on a ticket will guarantee obama's second term. there isnt enough religious nuts in the country to support their election and their are millions of people who don't want to see us turn into iran
