    Excerpt:

    So let’s get right to it then – you are now indicating to us that the Obama White House would like Hillary Clinton to replace Joe Biden as Vice President. Is that correct? Absolutely correct. There has been speculation of just such a deal for some time now. The speculation has proved to be accurate. The Obama White House is very concerned with the possibility of Hillary Clinton seeking the nomination in 2012. Very-very concerned, and for good reason. Democratic Party supporters – I’m talking some very deep pockets and very considerable influence, have been engaging in some speculative chatter of that nature for a while. When that happens, its a warning shot at the White House that says to them you better get things back on track or we are going to try and replace you. And Hillary Clinton has done nothing to diminish that chatter. The opposite in fact. She is considering the possibility herself.

    This story was published on the October 3rd - today, October 5th CNN doing a Situation Room story on the very subject. It is also right now the lead front page story on Drudge.

    Very interesting...

    If this is true it will be interesting. I wonder why more people aren't talking about this?

    Both Drudge, CNN, and Hot Air are talking about it so that is pretty significant coverage and I was told it was mentioned on O'Reilly tonight but have not confirmed that yet.

    Another quote from the "Insider":

    I can guarantee with near certainty to you right now that what the Clintons are doing is weighing the possible outcomes. Hillary Clinton is going to do one or the the other. There is your headline right there. Hillary Clinton is either going to run against Barack Obama in 2012 or run with Barack Obama in 2012. Those are the only two options she is considering at this point, and the Obama White House is -expletive- itself over the possibility she chooses to run against him. And let me just add this last point. The Obama White House doesn’t give a rats ass about “tearing the party apart” as you put it. They only care about securing Obama as president. Too many have invested too much in having him in there to further an agenda that has been planned for too long. Hillary would be far less easy to manipulate and control than Obama. With Obama it’s not so much about politics as it is about ideology. It is a battle that is being waged right now within the Democratic Party. And a brutal battle is has been. It’s going to get worse too. Much worse.

    Pretty sure she ran the country for eight years already. Obama is a one-termer. It would showcase Clinton for a run. Sounds like Democratic operatives are recognizing Obama's limitations.

    I think it's a great idea.

    She is very well qualified.

    She will kick the Republicans in the balls.

    She was my choice before Obama came along and forced me to go with Barr.

    Humm I’m thinking this is more of a strategic move to assure that Hillary does not run against Obama in 2012. Any alleged cover-up of Foster’s death would have come out or did when she ran in 08.
