    Serious question, is it too late for Obama to switch to Hillary as his VP?

    Is their president or rules against such actions?

    I think Biden would have to withdraw. Perhaps enough pressure could be put on him to do that, but I don't think Obama could just replace him.

    It would just prove how much of a popularity contest the campaigns have become. Exchanging pigs with lipstick wouldn't make much difference in the substance.

    Just how secure would Obama feel/be with Hill one heart-beat away from her goal of POTUS??

    Well, he could pick Al Sharpton. Then he wouldn't have to worry about being assassinated. :laugh:

    I really have a feeling he's kicking himself for the Biden pick. Hillary would level the playing field since it should reduce the sexist, feminine accusations... Then we can move on to the issues!

    I think that the Dem National Executive committee would have to be involved in the decision. Of course, if the Messiah wanted so-and-so, I'm sure they would listen to him.

    I think it would be a challenge to get her to stick to the designated official role of Vice President and not try to expand it into something more than it was intended to be.

    Beat me to it.
    It's not as simple as just changing the yard signs. Biden is the nominee as VP. You can't just unring that bell easily.
