DescriptionThe Washington Examiner reports that "Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was pressed by her husband and a top Obama aide to consider replacing Vice President Joe Biden just a couple of weeks ago, claims the author of the New York Times bestseller 'The Amateur.'" Clinton, the report states, turned down the request.

...

In an email from a State Department spokesman to THE WEEKLY STANDARD, Philippe Reines, a longtime Clinton confidant, channels his inner Dr. Seuss to shoot down the report:

"This did not happen
"They did not have lunch
"They did not have any meal
"They did not meet this month
"They did not meet last month
"They did not meet in 2012
"They did not meet in 2011, 2010, 2009
"This is not happening
"Truth is that Ed Klein is an idiot with not a shred of credibility
"Truth is that Ed Klein's motto is 'If at first you don't succeed, lie lie again.'"
