Political Prediction for 2012

  Robert Reich writes “My Political Prediction for 2012:  It Obama-Clinton.” 

“My political prediction for 2012 (based on absolutely no inside information): Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden swap places. Biden becomes Secretary of State — a position he’s apparently coveted for years. And Hillary Clinton, Vice President.

So the Democratic ticket for 2012 is Obama-Clinton.

Why do I say this? Because 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…”


  I blogged about this subject here or on Howard’s Notebook.  I am not sure maybe both of them.  But I think it would be a great idea. 
  I did not know that Biden wanted to be Secretary of State.  I was saying he should just bow out for the sake of the party.  
This would come as a surprise to the GOP and it would shake them up.  They would have to re-tool a bit.  Anything we can do to rock their boat is good.

I have always been into communications. In the early 1960s I put out a publication, "SWL", world wide. I also did a radio program that was broadcast or shortwave radio. It was broadcast over WRUL radio. I hosted a convention in Kansas City (MO). I was one of the founders of the very first People-to-People organization. In 1982 I started a bulletin board system called Howard's Notebook. It was one of the very first online sites. It was a "blog." This is before the world wide web was invented in 1995. I was one of the very first to stream online video. I attended One BBSCON in Colorado Springs (CO) in August of 1993. When the rest of the world caught on to what we were doing and invented the world wide web I moved Howard's Notebook to the web.
