    Rumors about VP Joe Bidens future on the Obama ticket are flying on some Progressive blogs. Hilary's name is mentioned over and over, but is she a realistic alternative given the bad blood that has existed between her and the President and her own claim that she is getting out of the spotlight after this term? If not her then who? George Clooney?

    George Clooney's not a bad idea.

    One thing's for sure, Hillary won't do it.

    -------------I don't know, Hilary has been climbing the ladder for years. Considering her campaign in 2008 showed she was fairly relentless in trying to win the Democratic primarys, I find it hard to believe she would dismiss a chance at VP especially as she would then be the incumbent in 2016 and that much harder to beat.

    As much as I would applaud to see that happen, I just don't think it will. I think she might have been offered the VP after her loss to Obama in 2008 but I wouldn't have taken it either if I was her. She doesn't play second fiddle and that's why she won't take it now. She stated a few times she wants to get out of high-wire politics and into philanthropic stuff. I would be really (and pleasantly) surprised if she did a turn-around at this point.

    Of course those "rumors" are false. Biden is campaigning very well for Obama and he will stay on the ticket. The real rumor is Biden will be running for president in 2016.

    ----------I don't see how Biden could run in 2016, when he isn't blundering into embrassing himself or the administration he mmaking some inane statement.
