Biden-Clinton Switch Still Possible

Jonathan Alter says the idea of Vice President Joe Biden and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton switching jobs is not out of the question.

"Obama, Biden and Clinton are on good terms with each other, and they view the stakes -- a possible conservative takeover of all three branches of government -- as extremely high. If it's clear that Democrats need to do something dramatic to avoid losing the White House, the Switcheroo will happen."

"Neither the Obama campaign nor anyone else I know of has done any polling on this, and even strong public support for the idea right now wouldn't matter much to the White House. This is a decision for next summer, when the picture will be a lot clearer. In the meantime, don't let anyone tell you it's out of the question."
