Robert Reich: It's Obama-Clinton 2012

Robert Reich:

“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.”


I’ll believe it when I see it, but this speculation does have the advantage of explaining why, after three successful years as Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton announced in January that she will step down at the end of President Obama’s first term.

I agree with Reich, too, that an Obama/Clinton ticket would be unbeatable. Hell, I’d take odds on it.
