Oct. 6, 2010 Hillary Clinton for VP in 2012 is not that bad an idea but she has thus far denied she is interested in the notion of being the First Woman Vice President in history. The current Secretary of State said ” I have absolutely no interest and no reason for doing anything other than dismissing these stories and moving on. We have so much to do and I think we’re both happy doing what we’re doing”.
Clinton reported at the Most Powerful Women summit by Fortune Magazine. Joe Biden has always wanted to be Secretary of State and Hillary would be lined up for 2016 as a excellent candidate for President. (finally!!)
Bob Woodward mentioned this on CNN and now the story has gone viral but it was no surprise that Hillary Clinton would come to the rescue when Obama’s Presidency faltered in the first two years. Although Hillary protests in this video there is hope yet she will step up to the plate and rescue Obama.
If Biden and Clinton switched roles in the Obama administration it would be a better fit as Biden has served on the Foreign Relations Committee for years and he would like the job. Hillary however has run for President and has the experience of being in power.
In any regard despite her pleadings the Democrats are in an awkward position of having fewer women in high positions of power and when you consider the Grizzlie Mama’s come in this fall the Dem’s need to tap into their feminine side.
Sources have bolstered this hypothetical about Hillary Clinton being the only candidate to get Democratic women excited and the blue collar workers and will revive the democratic base.
Hillary fought a valiant fight for the Presidency and she was “likable enough” to be asked to be Secretary of State a position she was over qualified for and was a slight that never made up for Obama’s not picking her for VP in the first place.
The other reason is that it appears with Hillary Clinton you don’t get second chances.
