While I’m convinced that Barack Obama will in desperation be forced to offer up a head to voters before the election next year (he sure as hell ain’t accepting the blame), but I’ll be surprised if it’s Sheriff Joe’s plug-riddled scalp.
Some disagree and are predicting that Biden’s not going to be on the ticket next November:
A Prominent Republican is joining a prominent Democrat in predicting that Gov. Cuomo will become President Obama’s running mate for vice president next year.
Former New York GOP boss William Powers, credited with playing a key role in electing Rudy Giuliani mayor and George Pataki governor, was effusive in his praise of Cuomo’s successes in the just-ended legislative session, and in his prediction of the freshman governor’s political future.
“Andrew had a fabulous session. It was fabulous. A property-tax cap, ethics reform and, for Democrats, gay marriage,” said Powers.
“I don’t think there’s any doubt Obama is going to pick him as his running mate. The president is in trouble and [Vice President Joseph] Biden doesn’t bring anything to his ticket.
Former San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown earlier this year also predicted that Obama would pick Cuomo to replace Biden, who he claimed would be named by the president to replace Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton.
From the way the White House has been praising him, maybe Biden’s replacement as Obama’s running-mate will be Mitt Romney.
Speaking of Biden, the VP has started using Twitter. Don’t get excited though — all Tweets will be written by staffers and not Biden. Dangit… and I was looking forward to an entirely new gaffe delivery system for Biden.
