Taking a page from @theev

With President Obama "starting to look snakebit," it's only natural that Democrats would ask themselves whether they made a mistake by nominating him instead of Clinton in 2008. She probably won't do it — "she has enjoyed being loyal" — but she'll have plenty of support if she decides to go for it.. A Snakebit President
May 2011: Operation Neptune Spear, a covert raid on the Bin Laden Compound, fails tragically, resulting in the escape of Bin Laden and the death of two SEAL Team Six members.
July 2011: The Obama-Boehner Grand Bargain narrowly goes through Congress, meaning sweeping cuts to entitlement programs, leading to broad criticisms of the President on the issues of Social Security and Medicare.
• Secretary of State Hillary Clinton publicly resigns from the Obama administration, citing her concerns over the President's handling of foreign affairs and his alleged meddling in her department.
• Senator Bernie Sanders announces that he will run for President in 2012 in the Democratic primary, opposing President Obama from a "Democratic Socialist" perspective on the issues of healthcare and the economy.

Sept. 2011: The President's approval rating sinks to a net disapproval of nineteen percent, with only 37% of voters approving of his overall job performance. In the same poll, only 23% approved of his handling of foreign and 35% approved of his handling of the economy.

Oct. 2011: With potential primary challenger Howard Dean by her side, Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton declares that she will join the fight to replace President Obama in 2012, citing the reasons she left the administration, his cuts of Social Security and Medicare, as well as his abandoning of "traditional" Democrats.

Iowa Caucus (Democratic)

Barack Obama: 38.99%
Hillary Clinton: 38.98%
Bernie Sanders: 18.53%

Nevada Caucus (Republican)
Herman Cain: 24.5%

Haley Barbour: 23.16%
Sarah Palin: 21.89%

March 2012: President Obama remains in trouble, unable to gain a convincing lead over Clinton. Sanders manages to win several primaries as well but is unable to get enough momentum to win the primary.
• Cain gains momentum over the rest of the Republican pack, and a NeverCain sentiment is formed amongst many in the crowded pack.

May 2012: Romney drops out of the race, endorsing Barbour in an effort to prevent a Cain nomination.
• Cain announces that Michele Bachmann will be his Vice Presidential candidate, should he win the nomination.

June 2012: As the Republican race appears to be heading towards a contested convention, several individuals come forward to accuse Cain of sexual assault and harrasment.
• Michele Bachmann drops out from being Cain's running mate and endorses Palin.
• President Obama, as Clinton looks mathematically likely to historically clinch the Democratic nomination, surprises many by dropping out of the race. Although he makes no endorsement, he suggests (perhaps out of spite and hoping for a convention surprise) that Sanders would make a better nominee than the former Secretary.

July 2012: Hillary Clinton gains the Democratic nomination in Charlotte. President Obama reluctantly endorses her, urging the DNC to help stop the Republicans from overturning the ACA, his prized achievement.
• Kentucky Governor Steve Beshear is selected as Clinton's running mate, serving both as a final severing of Clinton from the Obama administration, as well as a fulfillment of her promise to reinstitute the 50-state strategy and win back red state voters.

Aug. 2012: At the RNC, Haley Barbour gains the nomination after 10 ballots, overcoming frontrunner Herman Cain, second runner up Sarah Palin and a smattering of favorite son and darkhorse candidates.
• Luis Fortuno, the popular Governor of Puerto Rico, is selected as Barbour's running mate over Supreme Court Justice and former Presidential candidate Clarence Thomas.
• Upset at Cain not getting the nomination, a group of Tea Party supporters than include former Presidential candidates Joe Arpaio, Roy Moore, and Steve King hold the 2012 Freedom Convention, where Lou Dobbs is nominated to run for President on an independent ticket. Commentator Ann Coulter is selected as his running mate.

Sept. 2012: Third party debates are held, with the most qualified field of third party candidates in modern history, including names such as Fmr. Governor Gary Johnson (Libertarian), Fmr. Rep. Virgil Goode (Constitution), Fmr. Mayor Rocky Anderson (Justice), and Fmr. Governor Buddy Roemer (Americans Elect). Also in attendance, amongst others, was Green nominee Roseanne Barr.

why would Hillary Clinton run on a Republican ticket
She likely wouldn't.

It's based on a set of polling from back in 2012 showing Clinton beating Obama by like 20% as an Independent with no Republican in the running
