"I agree with some that Palin has the potential for killing the Obama campaign (if she shows she can perform well at the national level). Frankly, security moms might break for McCain in significant margins, and the dirty secret is that women are already a strong voting majority. For that reason, the Obama campaign might be wise to consider shuffling Biden to Secretary of State position -so he won't put up a fight about losing Veep- and bringing in Hillary Clinton as their new Veep selection (alternatively another female with a longer resume than Palin, like Sebelius).
The ideal time for them to do that might be at an opportune moment during or shortly after the Republican convention.
