Tag Archives: VP Biden steps down

Rodham & Rice

You can warm your hands on the heartburn being felt in the Obama camp right now.  Condi being floated as a VP possibility? It’s probably difficult to find a bottle of Pepto or a roll of Tums in D.C.
Could we have a contest of ‘My Secretary of State is tougher than your Secretary of State!”
If you have read my posts in the past you’re already aware that I have taken the idea of Biden getting a Jet Pack and Hilary being “drug kicking and screaming” into the VP slot. For reference read Mrs. October, Shot Across the Bow, and Joe Biden Steps Down… throw in Hillary Clinton will be known as the greatest Secretary of State in U.S. History for good measure.

While I am of the school that VP’s typically mean little in terms of Presidential tickets, we had an example during the last cycle where the GOP nominee would have been defeated by far more than 6% had it not been for his choice.  And, having a record like the current Administration leaves a President with nothing to run on.  So…

It is no secret that the Obama Administration has little love for the Clinton machine.  It is no surprise this fact alone has kept the Obama Administration from helping Joe Biden vacate his office and allow Hillary to measure for drapes.

But… Condi being added to the GOP ticket would change everything.  Everything.

I can only hope that an event like this might happen.  The comparison of resumes is enlightening.  (For the appearance of non-bias I will link to their Wiki entries.  Pay particular attention to education and work experience, although the rest is interesting as well.)

Did you enjoy that reading?  If you were hiring someone and being a Socialist was not a requirement… which would you choose?

If nothing else, floating Condi’s name makes a point.  If something else, it could cause the Obama camp to accelerate whatever decisions they wanted to delay for as long as possible.

In my opinion, this was smart in a number of ways.


Mrs. October

Things are tough at the Obama White House, and…

It looks like Mrs. Clinton has started washing her hair and applying make-up again. I see even the pearls are back.  Funny how things change, so quickly.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who has noticed the debacle old Joe has caused the White House not just by his Gay marriage comments but more directly by his being Vice President for 3 1/2 years.

The President, who relies on his anti-war base, cannot produce a unifying event close to the election that resembles anything close to an Iranian conflict or support for direct military action in Syria… so what’s left for the Left?
Enter Mrs. October.
It remains my prediction that the Liberals will have an opportunity to vote for a Clinton again. I believe this was part of the “War on Women” campaign several months ago. Having Hillary move into the VP slot might have been temporarily shelved when the above “war” was laughed off the main-stream medias list of editorial “ups” but VP Biden keeps stepping on his own appendage at what was an alarming, and now has graduated to comical, rate.
The only variable I have yet to figure out is whether or not the Clinton’s can swallow their pride enough to put their name after President Obama’s on the ticket. But then I revisit one of my favorite news conferences… “I did not have sex with that woman, Ms. Lewinsky.” And of course, who can forget the “The Pretty in Pink” interview where Mrs. Clinton enlightened us all regarding a “vast right-wing conspiracy” out to destroy her husband.

Of course they can.

I told you this was going to be fun.
