Obama Has 21 Days to Drop Biden: Would Dumping Biden Signal Desperation?

President Obama has a lot of pressure to dump Vice President Joe Biden from the 2012 election campaign. Biden would not likely run for president in 2016 at the age of 73. Biden, a former Senator from Delaware, doesn't help with voters in the swing states like Florida, Virginia, Ohio or Pennsylvania. And Biden continues to bore people except with his gaffes ("20th Century") or outlandish rhetoric (accusing Republicans of enslaving people).

President Obama could shake things up by replacing Biden with Secretary Hillary Clinton as his vice president on his 2012 re-election ticket. Some pundits argue that would signal desperation by the Obama 2012 campaign because it would look as if Obama made a bad choice in picking Biden in 2008. Dumping Biden would only happen in desperation.

Then again, maybe President Obama would dump Biden for a candidate like Hillary Clinton because even Biden considers her more qualified for vice president (watch the video).

    As a Conservative, I want him to Keep BIden. Because the more he opens his mouth, the lower Obama's numbers go. It's no wonder they recalled Biden from his 'campaign' trip.

    Obama isn't even considering the idea. And Obama clearly isn't desperate, given his lead in the polls.

    It would show that he finally understands the blooper he made in the beginning.

    When something doesn't get better but continually gets worse to not act shows lack of leadership.

    If I were Hillary, I wouldn't run with him. Maybe they have already talked about it and she doesn't want to run with Obama who is a Communist !! I think she may want to run on her own someday.. but not with that Jackass.

    Oh, lets count the ways...he is a moronic communist, Muslim, and racist, hell bent on getting reelected sans any credentials, acumen, character, and common sense. Other then that he should not have a worry in the world, at least, if there are enough lemmings left for him to scam.

    I expected him to do it months ago. The later he waits now, the more desperate it seems to appear. Hillary can run in 2016 anyway and she will have less chance to get the nomination then if she loses on the ticket this time. I don't think she'll do it now.

    If Hillary Clinton replaces Joe Biden it will have nothing to do with his recent gaffes. If it happens, as I believe it might, it was a done deal months ago - possibly as long as two years ago. Keep in mind, Obama wanted Hillary in the VP spot in 2008, but his staff and his wife thought it was a bad idea coming off a bruising primary campaign. Besides, at the time, there was a belief that Bill Clinton would exert too much influence on policies, and make Obama look weak.

    Hillary has proven to be a good soldier, respectful of Obama's role as Chief Executive and Commander-in-Chief. By all accounts they have a good working relationship

    That said: Hillary would be sacrificing her future career if she took the VP spot. This will be a tough election, and even if the Democrats kept the White House they would be at the mercy of a strong, partisan, Republican congress. It would be difficult to accomplish mush under those conditions..

    But then again hasn't the desperation already started? Attacking the other candidate about his tax returns just to distract from his own horrible policies is already desperation.
