Dems Look Into Potential Clinton Replacements - Just In Case

To say that it’s been a rough week for the presidential campaign of Democratic nominee would be an understatement, and the aftershocks have reached the upper levels of the Democratic party. According to Western Journalism, there have even names bandied about as a potential replacement on the ticket - just in case.

There’s a storm a-brewing over the Clinton campaign, and numerous missteps and gaffes have combined to place the Democratic National Committee on high alert. In succession, Clinton has referred to some Donald Trump supporters as “deplorables,” nearly collapsed while exiting a 9/11 memorial event, and then completely botched the media handling of Sunday’s health episode.

“Dem operative: @HillaryClinton #BasketOfDeplorables, hiding pneumonia for 3 days, + fainting video = "unchartered political territory," tweeted journalist David Schuster.

The territory he referred to has led to some previously unthinkable conversations among the party about who they would place on the ticket if their hand was forced.

Vice President Joe Biden appears to be the name at the top of the list, but you can be sure that former candidate Bernie Sanders will attempt to make them ‘feel the Bern’ for old times sake.

“DNC delegate: If @HillaryClinton withdraws, every indication now committee will vote to replace with Biden. @BernieSanders team scrambling,” Schuster tweeted.
