So a few years ago Glenn started saying that he was convinced that Hillary Clinton would end up being the Democratic candidate for President in 2012. But Glenn's running out of time to make his prediction come true - and today Stu finally called him out on it. So how long did it take Glenn to find a way to get Hillary in the Presidential seat if she isn't at the top of the ticket in November?
"It took me about two seconds," Glenn joked about the challenge.
"And here it is. This is something that is really bothering me and I haven't figured it out yet. But what's bothering me is have you noticed the press is all of a sudden doing their job? All of a sudden the press is saying ‑‑ I can't say they're doing their job. They're kind of doing their job. They're standing up for, like, an unfair attack ad on Mitt Romney. What? Wait a minute. Ashleigh Banfield, MSNBC is standing up against a Barack Obama ad that is so wildly out of step, so wildly out of step with the truth and dignity and honor that it's amazing. And all of a sudden they're coming out? CNN has come out and done, you know, "Hey, this president is a little out of control." Really? All of a sudden now? So that's bothered me."
"Yesterday Bill Clinton was out campaigning ‑‑ remember this ‑‑ campaigning for Barack Obama. Now, you're not kind of neutral on somebody that you're out campaigning for, right? Am I right? Think about it. You're not neutral. You're clearly saying you've got to vote for this guy. What did he do? Yesterday he's like, 'Look, you've got to vote for this guy and, you know, even though on his economic policies, woof, boy, I really disagree with him on that. I mean, look what he's doing with the debt. Who runs up this kind of debt?' Wait a minute. Hold on. You're off script here."
"Now Bill Clinton knows exactly what he's doing. Bill Clinton is no man's dummy," Glenn said.
Glenn also mentioned that Van Jones has come out and admitted that he hasn't spoken up about the BP oil spill because Obama was President.
Jones has said, "You’ve never seen the environmental movement more quiet during an oil spill. I guarantee you if John McCain had been president, with that oil spill, or George Bush had been president with that oil spill, I’d have been out there with a sign protesting. I didn’t, because of who the president was."
"I don't think they're all being honest all of a sudden," Glenn explained.
Instead, Glenn thinks that by calling out the President they are going to force him to be the President they want him to be. This is a strategy Van Jones endorsed in his new book.
But in addition to forcing the President to the extreme (way way extreme) left, they are also making him look weak.
"You make him so weak and you put him behind in the polls and you've tried all your game‑changer things and they're not working," Glenn said. He specifically mentioned the gay marriage announcement as a game changing move that didn't catch fire with the American public.
So what's left? Push out Biden and name Hillary VP.
"So now what do you do? You come to the convention and you say, 'Joe Biden, I'm sorry, but you're insane. Hillary should be the (Vice President),'" Glenn said.
Now, is Glenn going to stake his career on this prediction? No. But is this one possible way that his yet to come true "Hillary as President in 2012" prediction could happen? Sure. After all, this whole segment was about proving to Stu it's still possible.
Now all Glenn has to do is come up with a NEW way for it to work after the convention.
Either way, let's hope Barack Obama ends up a one term President no matter what!
