Never say never. Hillary Clinton -- Obama's biggest block to getting the democratic presidential nomination in 2008 -- is now the most popular member of his cabinet. Unlike Vice President Biden, who seems to go off the rails every time he opens his mouth, Hillary Clinton has been low drama -- and loyal.
A post from the Wall Street Journal mentions a suggestion by former Virgina governor Doug Wilder that Clinton step in on the ticket. And for an election season this fall that is looking bad for democrats, Hillary could perhaps be, well, the great white hope for Obama in 2012.
Wilder argued that replacing Joe with Hill would re-invigorate working-class voters who could possibly go with the opposing ticket this time around. Would Joe go? A reporter for New York magazine even suggested the two simply switch roles. Pundits are vigorously debating whether or not she'd accept such a post. (Really, are you kidding? If Obama asks, you know the answers is yes. The woman would be physically incapable of turning such a role down.)
And anyway, it's not completely impossible to imagine: Stranger things have happened. Who would have thought Obama and Clinton, once the fiercest of competitors, would become the strongest of allies in one administration? Still, even if nothing comes of the chatter, Hillary Clinton's reputation keeps getting better and better.
