    Before all you 'hyped up' Hillary supporters decide this, better read this first... Hillary Clinton supports illegal immigration, amnesty Hillary Clinton supports illegal immigration, amnesty

    'Hillary for Vice President' movement gains traction
    As President Obama sinks in the polls, Democrats and liberal pundits inevitably are searching for a scapegoat. The most likely victim appears to be gaffe-prone Vice President Joe Biden, who has become the focus of speculation that Secretary of State Hillary Clinton just might replace him on the 2012 Democratic ticket.

    Former Virginia Gov. Doug Wilder, his state's first African-American governor, touched off the controversy. Writing at Politico.com last week, Mr. Wilder argued that Mr. Biden's tenure has been undistinguished and chock full of "too many YouTube moments." He charged that Mr. Biden "has continued to undermine what little confidence the public may have had in him."

    By way of contrast, Mr. Wilder says that Hillary Clinton has excelled in her role. "Clinton has been nothing but a team player who has earned good marks since being asked to serve as secretary of state." Having Mrs. Clinton join the 2012 ticket, he said, would revive the Democratic Party and reestablish the party's working-class voters who found her appealing during the 2012 primaries against Mr. Obama.

    Pundits jumped on Mr. Wilder's comments and expressed near-universal approval. On his syndicated national show, Chris Matthews of MSNBC assembled a panel to discuss the Wilder intervention. Howard Fineman of Newsweek, a longtime Hillary watcher, said Mrs. Clinton would accept a place on the 2012 ticket "in a second." John Heilemann, a reporter New York magazine, said the major obstacle would be to "figure out a way for Biden to slide aside happily" and suggested that Mr. Biden replace Mrs. Clinton as Secretary of State.

    Along the way, Mr. Heilemann outlined why President Obama just might want to have a steadier hand at his side for his re-election campaign: "The Republican attack on Obama is going to revolve around 'too liberal,' but also 'too incompetent.' . . . They're going to say, 'Look, you hired this guy. He was too young for this job. He didn't know what he was doing. He didn't have the experience, and look what's happened.'"

    Hmmm. Sounds a lot like the campaign Mrs. Clinton ran against Barack Obama in 2008, complete with that infamous commercial asking voters who they wanted in the White House when a 3 a.m. crisis call came in.

    Wow! This is just plain stupid. She's only slightly less Leftist/Marxist than the current President. That's definitely not enough to get anyone fired up about supporting her. The best thing will be for Americans to just vote out the Socialist/Progressive Democrats entirely. Anything less than that will be just plain stupid.

    Not only that but no one--and I mean no one is going to vote for BO again--simply because Hillary is V.P. We all know who is in charge of this country and it's not the vice-President--:lol:

    Hillary made a enormous mistake by being in this administration. She could have been a real powerhouse in the Senate--waited for Obama's poll numbers to drop where they are right now--and announced her intention to run against Obama after the November elections.

    Even if she quits this administration right now--she will be permanently tagged as in this administration--and wouldn't stand a snow-balls chance in hell of winning in 2012.

    Huh... For the most part, Biden has struck me as rather innocuous.

    Biden sucks, but he's one of the comparatively least shitty members of the Administration. Hillary is an irrational hawk irrevocably entrenched in the broken inner circle culture of Washington, she would only make things worse in a more significant position.

    So... the logic here is that Obama would be ok if not for Biden?

    Ok, Biden is an idiot, I get that.... but Obama is a disaster with or without Biden.

    Another good reason for all of us to pray and get out there and vote to be sure Obama does not get close to the White House ever again after this term. But I for one think that Bararck Obama will lose and lose big big in 2012 and Hillary Clinton does not want to lose along with him. My opinion? I don't think that she will not accept a VP spot right now and spoil her shot at the "WHOLE ENCHILADA" the next time around .
