This is the new rumor. Any truth to it? Is the Obama camp really THAT down on Biden?

You're taking Ed Klein seriously? He of "Chelsea Clinton is the product of Bill raping Hillary" fame?

Of course not. Is that the sole source? Do we have a firm denial from the Obama camp that they offered a spot to Clinton? I am skeptical, but intrigued.

The only places talking about this are fringe sites that have no credibility and a tendency to stir up anti-Democratic propaganda. I found two other sources: WND & Scrape TV (?). With that being said, WND - which definitely falls into those aforementioned categories - has hit the nail on the head in regards to VP issues once before.

This meme comes up every time a VP is picked a second time. Biden is Obama's running mate. Deal with it.

Yeah, and they've already spent millions of dollars on Obama-Biden 2012 Merchandise. I highly doubt they'd waste money like that just for Hillary.

Those people advised Romney to release his taxes for political reasons, so he is not attacked about them by the left. They were not trying to stir up anti republican propeganda.

The Radical Left: "Release your tax returns! What are you, facking stupid?"

The Reasonable Right: "Release your tax returns! What are you, facking stupid?"

75% of Democrats, 53% of independents and 30% of Republicans: "Release your tax returns! What are you, facking stupid?"

Are you really attempting to argue intent, as if it matters?

As an aside, who is the fourth guy?

It is probably not true, because Obama is not that desperate.  They might have been discussing it last year, but not a month before the convention.

Evidently not.

Quote
In an email from a State Department spokesman to THE WEEKLY STANDARD, Philippe Reines, a longtime Clinton confidant, channels his inner Dr. Seuss to shoot down the report:

"This did not happen
"They did not have lunch
"They did not have any meal
"They did not meet this month
"They did not meet last month
"They did not meet in 2012
"They did not meet in 2011, 2010, 2009
"This is not happening
"Truth is that Ed Klein is an idiot with not a shred of credibility
"Truth is that Ed Klein's motto is 'If at first you don't succeed, lie lie again.'"
