IIf you haven't seen this clip, it's worth viewing. The bloggers are amazed and befuddled, on both sides of the aisle. It seems that our President had President Clinton with him to review the tax deal recently cut with Republicans and at the end of the clip, President Obama makes an excuse about keeping the First Lady waiting at a Christmas Party and leaves President Clinton to answer questions. The whole clip is 2:12 long, and as strange as it seems to have President Clinton standing at the White House podium, it's truly weird at the 2:00 minute mark when Obama makes his excuses and leaves.
I would imagine that the President had a better reason for leaving the briefing than to attend a Christmas party. I hope that this is some sort of calculated political triangulation rather than the amateurish mistake that it seems to be.
They told me that if I voted for Hillary, we'd have Bill Clinton as a co-president, and they were right.
