Biden - Clinton job swap?! 

Hi. Are you going to finish that?   (ap photo)

Remember the 2008 so-called "Dream Ticket" with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama? Bob Woodward went on CNN today and said there is discussion inside the White House about swapping out Joe Biden for Clinton ahead of 2012. "It's on the table," Woodward said.

WHAT?!

"President Obama needs some of the women, Latinos, retirees that she did so well with during the [2008] primaries and, so they switch jobs, not out of the question, and the other interesting question is, Hillary Clinton could run in her own right in 2016 and be younger than Ronald Reagan when he was elected president," Woodward told John King, USA.

Woodward, making the rounds promoting his book, "Obama's Wars," noted the move could help Obama in the short-term and Clinton in the long-term, but Clinton's people are being demure about it.

"Now you talk to Hillary Clinton or her advisers and they say 'no, no there's not a political consideration here,'" Woodward continued. "Of course the answer is, you point out to them that her clout around the world when she goes to Europe, Asia, anywhere is in part, not just because she's Secretary of State or because she was married to President Clinton, that people see a potential future president in her."
