    and nominates Biden for Secretary of State.

    Then he could nominate Hillary Clinton for Vice President.

      The 47% also "pay all the taxes that are legally required and not a dollar more" but when Romney does it he thinks it's a virtue, while when they do it, he thinks they are deadbeats.

      I assume it's a snark 'cause it ain't close to reality

      America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity

      •  Maybe, but it has something for everyone. (0+ / 0-)

        Hillary Clinton gets to be the first female VP and a not very demanding position while she decides if she runs in 2016.

        Obama gets to advance the cause of equal rights for women and pays back the Clintons for their support.

        Biden gets a job that enhances his resume in an area that he is likely to do well.

        The Senate GOP gets to squirm and think up reasons that Biden and Clinton are not qualified when everyone knows they are.

        •  not really (1+ / 0-)

          SoS is a big step down from being the nations elected VP and next in line for the Presidency. Biden is also President of the Senate and is part of all cabinet meetings and anything else this administration does. So there is really no way he'd take such a big demotion.

          Hillary sure as hell doesn't want to step in as VP for another four years of being at Obama's beck and call. She'd stand a chance of being blamed for things not in her control be it war, economy or a terrorist attack. Right now she's sitting in the catbirds seat and all she needs to do is wait and decide. No way she'd agree to take Bidens place.

          and I see it wasn't a snark after all

          America could have chosen to be the worlds doctor, or grocer. We choose instead to be her policeman. pity
