    As predicted Obama said it's not true.

    It would undermine their ticket if they admitted to it.

    I think they're lying.

    The Hildebeast is no fool. No way she wants to be associated with the losing '12 ticket. Come '16 if she wants to give it a go she can play the "told you so" game, reminding Dims of the things she said about Barry when they were punching each other around in '07-'08.

    This is when the red flags in that stupid article come up: "If elected, she didn't want to be tied to Obama's left-leaning politics in her own 2016 bid."

    I highly doubt Hillary Clinton said that.

    She's tired of 4 years on the road and then 2 years on the road before that, running for President.

    She may very well run in 2016, but her current job is an exhausting one, and she's only been the best Secretary of State in a generation. The lady wants to chill out for the sake of chilling out, not because of Obama's policies, which are only left-leaning to morons on the right who need to tell themselves that he's a commie.

    That's when you know this story is suspicious. And it also comes out of the notion of trying to make Biden seem bad at this job because he makes verbal gaffes at times.

    But unlike the most recent VP, Biden didn't have secret meetings with oil execs to shape the national energy debate, didn't leak a CIA officials name in order to endanger her, and didn't drag us into two endless wars without a plan for success.

    I'd say Biden is pretty good, particularly on his stance for wanting to get the hell out of Afghanistan the day before yesterday.

    Anyone who could, with a straight face and in all seriousness make a publicity stunt out of giving Russia a "reset" button that actually says "overcharged" and keep their composure is a good diplomat.
