Hillary for VP

Might the president consider dumping Joe Biden and putting Hillary Clinton on the ticket for Vice President in 2012? The panel on the Chris Matthews show suggests this might make sense, as support for Obama among White voters collapses.

After Mr Obama’s inauguration in January 2009, he boasted a 62 per cent approval ratings among whites. But that percentage plunged in July to just 38 per cent.

Under this theory, Hillary would shake up the 2012 election, and, with Bill, would win back White support in critical states like Ohio and Pennsylvania.
