Hillary Clinton will not replace bumbling Joe Biden on the Barack Obama ticket this year, according to author Ed Klein.
Citing unnamed sources, Klein said White House aide Valerie Jarrett recently put the vice presidential slot on the table for Hillary during a lunch meeting.
"The lunch was ostensibly about policy issues, but the subject of the vice presidency came up. Hillary told Valerie Jarrett that she was not interested in running as Obama's vice president," he said.
The Obama campaign isn't in a desperate place, politically, so they may not need to recruit Hillary, anyway. Mitt Romney and Obama are pretty much neck-and-neck at this point. So, Obama might be able to squeak by on Nov. 6, even with the gaffe-prone Biden as his running mate.
"Bill Clinton, I'm told, was urging his wife to accept the number two spot if it was formally offered. Bill sees the vice presidency as the perfect launching pad for Hillary to run for president in 2016," Klein said.
Hillary is making a smart move by not joining the ticket, because if Romney and Paul Ryan win, she would be labelled a loser. On the other hand, if she and Obama secure another four years, Hillary Clinton would be linked to his policies. And so far, Obama's policies have been complete failures. Do you believe Obama should ditch "Crazy Joe" Biden? Who should be his replacement?
