Obama dumping Biden would be the most important decision of the 2012 election. We think that if Obama shuffles Biden to Secretary of State (God help us) or out of the cabinet all together, it would seal 2012 for Obama and the Democratic Party
My political prediction for 2012 (based on absolutely no inside information): Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden swap places. Biden becomes Secretary of State — a position he’s apparently coveted for years. And Hillary Clinton, Vice President.
Why do I say this? Because Obama needs to stir the passions and enthusiasms of a Democratic base that’s been disillusioned with his cave-ins to regressive Republicans. Hillary Clinton on the ticket can do that.
