Palin/Rubio v. Biden/Webb 2012
Do you recall the time four years ago when the conventional wisdom had ’08 as coming down to Clinton v. Giuliani? I don’t expect at all that this will be a Romney v. Obama contest. Neither does Ace.
I’ve been onto something akin but more serious than The Won merely declining to seek renomination. My suspicion began when Clinton and Gates brazenly scooped Barry’s Osama Surprise from him a full year early. Jarrett had wanted OBL saved as an election goodie; Clinton would have needed to neutralize what little foreign policy success potential remained for the Incumbent.
When the Gunwalker murder fiasco surfaced it seemed that it became highly unlikely that Obama could survive it.
I’ll take friendly wagers that TOTUS and AG Holder, both, resign early… so that the incoming President can dispense full, blanket pardons. The gross, in-your-face corruption of this Administration has been so outrageous and over such a span of criminality that even the beclowned Old Grey Lady won’t be able to dodge it. “This is a big (effin’) deal!” [Amen, Joe. – Ed.] To quote broadcaster Jim Quinn:
High crimes and misdemeanors… mmmm mmmm mmmm!
Much depends upon Vice President Biden. I don’t get the sense that he’s evil. Yet Barry is in way over his head and like his ideology, badly out of capital. Joe may well have to pardon The Won; I can’t predict how it will work for Holder.
And yeah, I think Palin will step-up and be on the ticket.
