Swap Out Hillary C. for Joe B. in 2012??
That’s the idea that “Tingles” Matthews has been exploring. From NewsBusters’ Noel Sheppard.
The panel of the syndicated “Chris Matthews Show” this weekend campaigned for Hillary Clinton to replace Joe Biden as Vice President in order to assist Barack Obama’s re-election in 2012 and set her up for a successful presidential bid in 2016.
As NewsBusters reported Wednesday, Chris Matthews on that evening’s “Hardball” had former Virginia governor Doug Wilder and New York magazine’s John Heilemann on to discuss the merits of this strategy.
The “Hardball” host must have found this quite compelling, for he decided to do an entire segment on his weekend program with guests Erin Burnett of CNBC, Kelly O’Donnell of NBC, Howard Fineman of Newsweek, and Heilemann.
Substitute Hillary’s baggage and personality for Biden’s gaffes? “Obama/Clinton 2012”? Wouldn’t that be a dream ticket … for the Republicans?
