WASHINGTON – Sources say President Obama is making Hillary Clinton his Vice President and Joe Biden will now be Secretary of State.
Insiders say President Obama will finally announce next week that he is making Hillary Clinton his VP running mate for 2012 and Joe Biden will become Secretary of State in 2013.
Robert Reich, former Clinton advisor, once again let the cat out of the bag in an interview today. But sources inside the White House say that Reich had spoken on behalf of the President and the sources confirmed that Hillary will be the new Vice President.
Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden are both thrilled with the decision and look forward to a victory in 2012 and another 12 years of Democratic rule. “We really can fundamentally change the nation forever,” a White House insider told WWN. ‘”You won’t recognize America in 12 years. It’s going to be great.”
Hillary has long been Obama’s top advisor:
The Democratic ticket for 2012 will be Obama-Clinton.
As a top White House aide said, “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. Clinton would help deflect attention from the bad economy and put it on foreign policy, where she and Obama have shined.
Bill Clinton supports the decision, “1,000%.” Sources close to Bill told WWN that the former President can’t wait to get back to the White House and that Hilary as VP will “essentially run the country.” And when Hillary becomes President in 2016? “You’ll get two for one,” said Bill Clinton.
The switch will make Clinton the obvious Democratic presidential candidate in 2016 — and give the Democrats a perceived lock on the White House until 2024.
What will the Republicans do?
