NYT: Joe Biden Dodged a Bullet in 2012

Surprising news revealed from 2012 campaign. Seems top Obama aids considered dumping VP Biden from re-election ticket in favor of Hillary Clinton. The bombshell is coming from a new book on the 2012 campaign, quoted in the New York Times.

According to "Double Down," President Obama's top aides prepped for the 2012 election by weighing all options on the table, which includes secretly considering replacing Vice President Biden with Hillary Clinton on their ticket. According to the book, it was a move they thought could possibly ramp up President Obama's slumping popularity.


According to Jonathan Martin, National Political Correspondent for the "New York Times," the book includes a campaign memo from the Romney campaign vetters, quoted at length, talking about the unanswered questions they didn't know about Chris Christie.

He sat down with Anchor Kate Bolduan this morning to discuss further.
