Yesterday I was listening to NPR’s Talk of the Nation. Bill Keller from the New York Times was a guest because he wrote an article suggesting that the Obama campaign would strengthen their reelection bid if they dumped Joe Biden in favor of Hillary Clinton (listen here). I wonder how many readers of this blog would consider Clinton replacing Biden to be a positive move. Would it cause you to vote for Obama? Would it keep you from voting for Obama? Would it change your stance toward his campaign at all?
Gosh I’ll miss Biden if BO pics Hillary LOL. That guy’s epic. My wife’s Uncle – a life long Demo – was going on and on about Dan Quayle the other day and I was like, “I’ve got one word for you – BIDEN.” LOL
I wonder if Hillary would even consider it. I don’t think she likes Obama in the least.
@Sean: Biden does provide many sound bites!
@Gary: True, but is there a better way to set herself up for a run at the Presidency in 2016?
Not convinced with either combo, that their ideas are better for the economy, or that they’d help pick a conservative supreme court bench — or even that they will decrease our military presence overseas (though they may have a leg-up on their tough-talk Republican counterparts on this issue).
Still undecided if I will continue my registration as an Independent or change to Republican this year. Hard to be enthused about either option.
One thing to consider is that Obama did remove our troops from Iraq. This is a positive move in my opinion. I don’t know that I foresee any current candidate as being all that brilliant regarding economics or appointing people to the courts. I remain an Independent who intends to vote for Obama.
All US Forces were mandated to withdraw from Iraqi territory by December 31, 2011 under the terms of a bilateral agreement signed in 2008 by President Bush. Troops actually withdrew December 18. If we’re to credit Obama with the withdrawal, it is only with the 13 days difference. Sadly, once politicians get into office they act surprisingly similar, especially regarding war. Bush did lead the invasion, of course, for that he will have a singular and ignominious place in history. But the promises of getting us out fell far short. As for another example, this administration seems also to have forgotten about the illegal detainees; it is treating them just the same as the last one did.
