It’s Obama-Clinton in 2012

I don’t know how accurate this is, but i’m sure it wouldn’t hurt President Obama’s chances.

(NEWSER) – Robert Reich may have “absolutely no inside information,” but the former labor secretary is making an educated guess as to the 2012 Democratic ticket: It’ll be President Obama and Hillary Clinton, Reich writes on his blog. “Obama needs to stir the passions and enthusiasms of a Democratic base that’s been disillusioned with his cave-ins to regressive Republicans. Hillary Clinton on the ticket can do that,” he notes. Echoing Jonathan Alter, Reich suggests that Joe Biden would love to be secretary of state.

Putting Clinton on the ticket would also turn the focus away from the economy—a big plus, given the “better than even chance we’ll be back in a recession”—and put it on the administration’s successful foreign policy. An Obama-Clinton ticket would also combine Gallup’s “most admired” man and woman this year. On top of all that, Clinton would become the frontrunner for the Dems in 2016, which could help the party hold the presidency for 12 years, Reich notes.
