Former San Francisco mayor, Willie Brown, says we should expect a political shake up at the highest levels.
As President Obama came-a-calling to San Francisco on Wednesday looking for cash, the City’s former mayor says he expects Mr. Obama will have a new vice president in 2012.
There has been some talk that Obama may replace Biden on the ticket with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Biden wanted State from the start and Hillary as veep would pave the way for her anticipated run for president in 2016.
But Willie Brown sees another power politician filling the void: newly elected Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York.
“He’s a big name, a big-state governor. And a Democrat who is taking on the issue of pubic-employee salaries and pensions. Plus, he looks good.”
