Reich: Get Ready for Obama-Clinton Ticket

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.

So the Democratic ticket for 2012 is Obama-Clinton.

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.

Moreover, the economy won’t be in superb shape in the months leading up to Election Day. Indeed, if the European debt crisis grows worse and if China’s economy continues to slow, there’s a better than even chance we’ll be back in a recession. Clinton would help deflect attention from the bad economy and put it on foreign policy, where she and Obama have shined.

The deal would also make Clinton the obvious Democratic presidential candidate in 2016 – offering the Democrats a shot at twelve (or more) years in the White House, something the Republicans had with Ronald Reagan and the first George Bush but which the Democrats haven’t had since FDR. Twelve years gives the party in power a chance to reshape the Supreme Court as well as put an indelible stamp on America.

According to the latest Gallup poll, the duo are this year’s most admired man and woman This marks the fourth consecutive win for Obama while Clinton has been the most admired woman in each of the last 10 years. She’a topped the list 16 times since 1993, exceeding the record held by former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, who topped the list 13 times.

Obama-Clinton in 2012. It’s a natural.

  1. “Clinton would help deflect attention from the bad economy and put it on foreign policy, where she and Obama have shined.”

    Shined? Which galaxy are you referring to?

  2. Let’s look the truth in the eyes. The Republicans are falling all over themselves. None of them are heavy weights. Even Gingrich who should have had the best chance, has so many negatives that we have to forget him. Unless some new face comes forward, brace for Obama(whoever his running mate is)

    Dear Shmuel, Hashem Has and Is helping us. Obama will win the Elections in 2012, in order to continue bringing the GREAT USA to it’s knees. Only then, will Hashem usher in the Moshiach.

  4. Who Needs or wants 4 More Years!!!

    When he will not be beholden to votes or support which is in 2015 he will display those tendencies which he did initially subsequent to his election in 2008.

    Those tendencies bode extreme Negativity and Destruction.

    What Positive feeling has emerged from this Administration.

    Ms. Clinton is also no bargain.
