Morning Newsdome: Your weekly dose of Clinton gossip

>> Everyone loves some good Clinton gossip. First comes rumors that Hillary will replace Joe Biden for the 2012 ticket with President Obama, now that her rating is seventeen points higher than Biden's. Obillary? (Public Policy Polling)

>> Second, Bill Clinton has planted himself in the California gubernatorial race against former governor Jerry Brown with a series of ads on both sides attacking each other. Bill doesn't live in California, but then again, that didn't stop Hillary from becoming a New York senator. (Politico)

>> I know a certain commenter that will be happy about this one: The Tea Party has already claimed 18 primary and special election victories over Republican candidates, and the Christian Science Monitor found in a poll that forty-four percent of Americans now see the Tea Party "in a favorably light." Maybe they meant those people are temporary blinded by light and deprived of sense. (the Christian Science Monitor)

>> After the EU compared France's controversial Roma crackdown to WWII deportations, France angrily defended the policy with the French European affairs minister saying, "The tone she took ... is not the manner one uses to address a great state like France, which is the mother of human rights." God, the French never disappoint in their delusional Frenchness. (the Guardian)

>> And finally: Derek Felton was fired from the New Jersey Transit after 11 years of work when photos surfaced of him burning pages of the Koran near the proposed "Ground Zero Mosque" site. He's clearly an idiot for burning another religion's sacred book, but then again, can NJ Transit rightfully fire him for personal actions outside of work? (New York Daily News)
