    That said, it's a bad idea and it won't happen.
    If it is interpreted that he could succeed Clinton after her demise, he could only do so if there was less than 2 years left in her term. To wit, "no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. "

    If she there was more than two years left in her term, Obama would be ineligible since he's already been elected twice.

    Whew, now that would send some people off the deep end, now wouldn't it.
    Thoughts are?
    You're assuming that a man like Obama who is consumed by pride would accept the lowly job of VP. Good luck with that

    I don't think Obama could carry the ticket. I think if the midterms meant anything it's that many in America do not approve of the way Obama has been running the country with the Dems, as it is right now most polls have him at a lower approval rating. That can change between now and the election but as it stands today (legal or not) I'm unsure of it would help Hillary to run with Obama as her running mate.

    But, I suspect more damage can be done to Republicans baiting them into having to run on social conservatism also. If the Clinton camp can engineer ways to force Republicans to talk about Marriage Equality, Abortion, Women's Pay Equality, etc. that could be more assurance of a win.

    Somewhat back to the same point for Republicans, I think the only hope they have is holding Congress.
    Probably so, then it is Clinton's to lose.

    I think the economy sucks, stagnating along while being propped up by massive deficits, non-QE QE and ZIRP...with skewed government data (like the U-3 and CPI) to make everything look prettier. But most Americans (including most at the Fed/Congress, unfortunately) are macroeconomic ignoramuses, so they think the economy is fine.

    So as long as Clinton goes along generally with how the present admin. has handled the economy and foreign policy AND so long as she has the Fed in her back pocket (the latter obviously wants a Dem POTUS so will help the economy any way it can until at least November)...AND assuming she doesn't blow it otherwise, she is probably going to be the next POTUS.
