Ed Klein: Hillary Clinton Turned Down Opportunity To Replace Biden
"Up until just a couple of weeks ago the White House was putting out feelers to see if Hillary would accept the vice-presidential nod and replace Joe Biden. Bill Clinton was, I'm told, urging his wife to accept the number two slot. He saw this as a great launching pad for her for running in 2016," author Ed Klein told Larry Kudlow on CNBC.
"She felt that if she were on the ticket with Obama and he lost, she would be tarred as a loser when she tried to run in 2016. On the other hand, if she was on the ticket and he won, and he continued his far left-wing socialistic policies, she'd have to defend those policies when she ran in 2016," Klein later explained.
