How afraid are the Democrats of Palin. This afraid -- from Steve
HILLARY CLINTON TO REPLACE JOE BIDEN?
I was the main source on the Internet discussing the story that Hillary Clinton -- early in October, it appears -- would replace Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket. I stand by this revelation because I believe it's true. The Houston Post-Chronicle recently printed a story suggesting such a "V-P Switcheroo" could be coming. One development you've been hearing little if anything about is the effect Sarah Palin's tremendous popularity is having on congressional races. Because of Palin's popularity, many Obama Democrats are now afraid they may lose their seats. That has added to the desperation in the ranks of the Party's far-left wing. Many of the members of Congress most worried are those who truly need their "job" and have been on the federal dole for many decades Outside Congress, they would essentially be unemployable. Thus, they despise Sarah Palin because she threatens their livelihoods.
So, look for a growing number of calls for Obama to: (1) "get tougher" -- to sling more mud and be more negative than he already is; (2) get rid of Biden and replace him with Senator Clinton (or perhaps even someone else).
I hope all the thousands of bloggers and other onliners who are supporting McCain-Palin will highlight the "Hillary" story. That's exactly what Obama, Axelrod, Brazille, and Dean don't want you to do. Discussion will shed light on developments the Obama Campaign would rather spring on Americans at the last moment. Note: If you start hearing more stories, as we did last week, of Senator Biden's "health issues" (in actuality, he really doesn't have any), you will know the time is drawing nigh for Joe to exit Left.
My predictions for the Oct. 2 V-P debate (if Joe makes it that far)? She will mop the floor with him. His antics and windbag nature will turn off a huge number of women voters. Sarah will continue to look more "presidential" than Obama.
In the 1972 presidential election, George McGovern named as his V-P pick Senator Thomas Eagleton (a fine man, by the way). Then it came out that Eagleton had once undergone electro-shock treatments for depression. Calls came in from Party leaders to get Eagleton off the ticket. Senator McGovern famously said he was behind Eagleton "100% -- no, 1,000 percent. The next day McGovern dumped Eagleton, replacing him with Sargent Shriver (JFK's brother-in-law).
In November, 1972, McGovern lost 49 states.
Keep in mind the date October 5 (three days after the debate) in mind. :-)
