Obama Campaign Considered Replacing Biden With Hillary Clinton For 2012 Election

It turns out that some of President Obama’s aides at least studied the idea of replacing Vice President Biden with Hillary Rodham Clinton ahead of the 2012 election.

Obama aides are also saying the idea was never seriously considered.

In their forthcoming 2012 campaign book Double Down, journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann report that Obama’s team authorized focus groups and polling on the idea of bumping Biden for Clinton, then the secretary of state.

The New York Times, which obtained an early copy of the book, reported that “the aides concluded that despite Mrs. Clinton’s popularity, the move would not offer a significant enough political boost to Mr. Obama to justify such a radical move.”

The Clinton-for-Biden switch was a persistent rumor in 2011 and 2012. It was consistently denied by senior officials of the Obama campaign, including the president himself.

Former White House Chief of Staff Bill Daley told CBS This Morning that “there’s a little bit of an overhype on the book coming out on this issue.”

Said Daley: “I think one of the jobs of Chief of Staff is to recommend lots of things out of the box, but not for a moment was there a serious discussion or a belief that Joe Biden should be replaced, period.”

After the Times story went online Thursday, former Obama senior adviser David Plouffe tweeted:

“Never any — any — consideration of VP/HRC switch. Not even entertained by the only person who mattered. Or most of us. Back to Halloween.”
