What do you think? Any possibility this is based on a glimmer of truth?

I rec'd the email below this morning. It's probably just one of those things that gets started with no basis in fact. A lot of times I've found that people speculate as if something were a fact just so they are able to say they knew it first if it ever happens. If it doesn't happen they can say their source was wrong (if anyone remembers they're the one who got it started).

I think there's a lot of Democrats who are hoping this one is at least partially true:

HEY YOU This is the whisper in the wind. This came from Faith in Iowa.

On or about October 5th, Biden will excuse himself from the ticket, citing health problems, and he will be replaced by Hillary. This is timed to
occur after the VP debate on 10/2.

There have been talks all weekend about how to proceed with this info.

Generally, the feeling is that we should all go ahead and get it out there to as many blog sites and personal email lists as is possible. I have already seen a few short blurbs about this - the 'health problem' cited in those articles was aneurysm.

Probably many of you have heard the same rumblings.

However, at this point, with this inside info from the DNC, it looks like this Obama strategy will be a go.

Therefore, it seems that the best strategy is to get out in front of this Obama maneuver, spell it out in detail, and thereby expose it for the grand manipulation that it is.

So, let's start mixing this one up and cut the Obamites off at the pass - send.
An aneurysm? That sounds rather dire to me and rather hard to predict or fake. I don't have time today to go out and read around about this and it does sound like another off-beat conspiracy theory type thing, which probably has some of you wondering why in the world I'm even putting it out here for discussion! This blog is about Obamatactics and it's a purported tactic no matter how wild!

I don't know whether there's truth in this or not, but have speculated about it a bit. I think it's not impossible. And I'm afraid it might shift some momentum to Obama. The excitement would be on their side. And many Hillary fans would be pumped. But would Obama's ego stand for this? I doubt it. If it did happen, I think it would show that Obama is not the one driving his own campaign.
