Will it be Biden or Palin to go “under the bus”

Already the Democrat long knives are out, clearing the path for the exit of Joe Biden from the Democratic Party ticket.

CBS News and The Politico have picked up on the story by investigative reporters Chuck Neubauer and Tom Hamburger in the LA Times.

a potential conflict of interest involving Biden and one of the nation’s biggest asbestos litigation law firms — which also happens to be his top contributor.

The report seems to provide fuel to Obama supporters enraged Illinois senator picked a running mate with such deep ties to the D.C. cash-politics-lobbying world.

The Associated Press has the story of Biden, and his questionable relationship with MBNA, the largest employer in Delaware. Coincidentally, employees of MBNA make up the largest source of campaign contributions for Biden.

A son of Democratic vice presidential candidate Joe Biden was paid an undisclosed amount of money as a consultant by MBNA, the largest employer in Delaware, during the years the senator supported legislation that was promoted by the credit card industry and opposed by consumer groups.

And, oh, by the way:

In a separate matter in which Hunter Biden’s lobbying activities were referenced, he and Biden’s brother Jim have been sued for allegedly defrauding an ex-business partner.

As Obama’s under-the-bus crowd continues to grow, it is clear that the preparations for an emergency Bidenectomy have been made. The only thing standing between this happening is Sarah Palin’s Wednesday night acceptance speech at the RNC. If she does poorly, then Biden stays. But, if she performs well, and wows not only the partisans in St. Paul but also the independents watching on their television screens, then the worst fears of the Liberals will have been realized.

Obama will have no other choice but to dump Biden and choose the only VP candidate that will give him a winning shot.

Hillary Clinton.

She’s Baaaack. Just remember folks, you read it here first.

Update 2: Susan Estrich estimates 30% of HRC voters will bolt for McPal

Update 3: CNN takes a look and concludes that it will be Palin who withdraws. [note to Mina Kimes: Intrade had Mitt Romney as the odds-on favorite for the veep slot last week.]
