Brazile Says She Considered Replacing Clinton With Biden As Nominee After Fainting Episode

5

Former Democratic National Committee head Donna Brazile writes in a new book that she seriously contemplated replacing Hillary Clinton as the party’s 2016 presidential nominee with then-Vice President Joe Biden in the aftermath of Clinton’s fainting spell, in part because Clinton’s campaign was “anemic” and had taken on “the odor of failure.”

In an explosive new memoir, Brazile details widespread dysfunction and dissension throughout the Democratic Party, including secret deliberations over using her powers as interim DNC chair to initiate the process of removing Clinton and running mate Sen. Tim Kaine, Va., from the ticket after Clinton’s Sept. 11, 2016, collapse in New York City.

Brazile writes that she considered a dozen combinations to replace the nominees and settled on Biden and Sen. Cory Booker, N.J., the duo she felt most certain would win over enough working-class voters to defeat Republican Donald Trump.

  1. So one person has the power to overturn the will of the millions of people who vote in the primaries and insert their own candidate instead? Amazing.

  2. and had taken on “the odor of failure.”
    this is probably a lie highly unlikely she would hand bernie someone who is really a indepenent the democratic party!

  3. Trump would’ve won in any event but at least Biden would’ve lost with dignity unlike Hillary the biggest sore loser in history who’ll keep whining about her 2nd loss as long as she lives.
