Washington (CNN) -- White House spokesman Robert Gibbs is pouring cold water on the red-hot speculation -- fueled by journalist Bob Woodward in a CNN interview -- that President Barack Obama may create a so-called "dream ticket" of Obama-Clinton in his 2012 re-election battle.
"No one in the White House is discussing this as a possibility," Gibbs told CNN Wednesday morning.
The speculation that Obama may dump Vice President Joe Biden as his running mate and shift him over to the secretary of state job -- moving current Secretary of State Hillary Clinton to the VP slot -- was sparked by Woodward in an interview Tuesday night with CNN's Chief National Correspondent John King.
"It's on the table," Woodward said on "John King, USA." "Some of Hillary Clinton's advisers see it as a real possibility in 2012."
Obama advisers outside the White House note privately that it's significant that Woodward attributed the theory to Clinton advisers and not White House aides or Obama advisers, signaling this may only have traction among Clinton supporters hoping she would move one step closer to the Oval Office and be set up as the likely Democratic nominee for president in 2016.
Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.
Obama doesn't have a chance in he!! at getting re elected. I'm not saying everything that has happened in the last couple of years is all his fault..
If big and small business's don't manage there company's right the man in Washington gets blamed, that's just the way it is.. IMO, he has made some pretty big mistakes and spends money we don't have. Not to say others before him haven't, becuase they have, just in different ways. I personally have not seen anything get better in my neck of the woods. It has gotten worse in the past year here. Everything is so screwed up right now. I don't think it's possible for him to turn the tide.. I think the people he has surrounded himself with have screwed him.. And that's his fault.
