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.

About the author

Jim Howard

My name is Jim Howard. I was born in Kansas City (MO) in March of 1941.

This was one of the first online sites in the world.

I got my first computer in 1978. It was a Radio Shack Model 1.
In 1982 I wrote BBS software, in BASIC, and started my bulletin board system (BBS). It was the 4th BBS in Kansas City. The BBS, at first, had one phone line and you had to connect at 300 baud.
The BBS was called Howard's Notebook. In 1995 when the world wide web was invented I moved Howard's Notebook to the web. Howard's Notebook is still going after all these years.

Jason Scott put out a documentary called "BBS: The Documentary" about early days of bulletin boards in December of 2004. I am in that documentary. I am only in it for a few minutes but he recorded me for three and a half hours. He plans, someday, to post the interview with me on the Internet Archive.
