She almost decided to replace Clinton as the candidate with Joe Biden.
Joe Biden. The DNC chairwoman also decided to replace Queen Hillary with a Go With The Joe You Know ticket.
She didn't, of course, and its really hard to imagine that actually happening. Still, it shows the extent to which the Clinton campaign was a mess to note that it was even considered.
Pluses or minuses of Biden, it's interesting that his name was thrown out independently as a candidate who could rescue the Democrats, but he himself chose to reject those efforts. Had the DNC thrown him in there, I wonder if he would have even accepted. It certainly would have amounted to a rejection of the democratic process within the DNC.
Still, if it had happened, I suspect we'd have a President Biden now.
