Biden out, Hillary in – as Obama’s running mate?
NEW YORK, Sept 26 – The internet is buzzing today with the rumour that Barack Obama’s gaffe-prone running mate Joe Biden will drop out of the race for health reasons – to be replaced by Hillary Clinton.
John McCain’s selection of Sarah Palin as his running mate has created so much interest in the Republicans that Obama will have to make a radical move to regain momentum, the argument goes.
Clinton could be just the key. Biden, who had surgery in 1998 to repair two brain aneurysms, would drop out after the vice presidential debates due to be held on Oct 2, according to the claims – leaving the way open for the former First Lady.
