Former Virginia Gov. Douglas Wilder, the first black to be elected governor, is calling for President Barack Obama to sack Biden and make Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton his running mate in 2012. The Democrat wrote Monday in a highly critical Politico column that the move would help win over working-class and middle-class independent voters who have grown distant from Obama. Wilder, who supported Obama over Clinton in 2008, says Clinton is better suited as a political and governing partner for Obama and that Biden hasn't distinguished himself except with gaffes. "I realize many say that he brings some more humanity to this administration," Wilder wrote of Biden. "But there are too many YouTube moments."
