“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think that wide circles of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel and the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of divine providence. It is a trial which the whole Church… must take up.” Karol Cardinal Wotyla (Sept. 1976)

Can he change running mates this late in the game?

Yes. My understanding is that the DNC governing rules make allowances where is someone "step's down", the leaders of the Democratic Party can quickly appoint the replacement without even needing to consult the delegates.It can be done on the Presidential candidate on the ticket as well.

That's not good news--a pro-abort woman democrat would be a left-winger's dream come true--

What a game plan: substituting a poor excuse for a Catholic with a poor excuse for a woman. Quite the switch.

Replacing Joe Biden with Hillary Clinton is political suicide for Obama. This would be widely condemned as a second-guess manoeuver and would highlight Obama's political inexperience. Hillary still brings her own burdensome baggage to the ticket in the person of President Bill. What happens to Obama's rationale for not bringing her on the ticket in the first place? Besides, with Hillary off of the ticket, she will be in a more commanding position to demand the nomination by right in 2012 than by being the VP nominee on a losing ticket. Hillary has too little to gain and everything to lose if she were to accept this play.

All IMHO, of course!

It is only political suicide if it doesn't increase Obama's poll numbers, which I think it would.

I thought about Hillary not having a gain in this, and I think the price would be a private agreement that Obama would be a one term president. Maybe appoint BJC Secretary of State. Every politician has their price.

I agree that it could be spun as Obama not having experience. I can see the McCain commercials now, "You don't get do-overs in the Oval Office."

Obama replaces Biden with Clinton and he shows the country that his first major decision was a blunder.

Everyone will also know that his only reasoning behind the switch was a desperate attempt to take the election.

That course may work, but it also may flop miserably.

Any good Catholic shouldn't support the Democrats in the first place!

Depends on the Democrat. You can have a pro-life Democrat run against a pro-abortion Republican, then I would support the Democrat.
