Whether this story is real or nor is unknown: to be sure, there is nothing the News Corp-owned media outlet would enjoy more than sowing even more discord within the top echelon of the democrat party just as Hillary is reeling from the clintonemail.com scandal, and is on the verge of announcing her candidacy for president. Still, the Post's Edward Klein does provide some circumstantial evidence pointing that there may be more here than meets the skeptical eye.
Naturally, if this story is accurate, then one can expect the Clintons, not only Hillary but certainly Bill - the person who according to many was instrumental in clinching Obama's reelection - to be quite furious with the administration. And indeed that is the case.
So why the feud, and why now, when Clinton is at her weakest and crushing her may sabbotage democrat hopes of sealing the next presidency? Perhaps that's precisely why.
Technically it's hardly the Clintons' fault that Obama's rule has been a disaster, even with the BLS desperately massaging any and all economic data in an attempt to make America's employment, and economic, situation orders of magnitude more soothing than it really is (that said, expect massive downward revisions to labor data once Obama is no longer president, but by then the jobs "recovery" of 2014-2015 it will be long forgotten #timestamp).
Still, it makes for good drama.
So who does Obama prefer to have as his successor? Well, all signs point to Elizabeth Warren. “With Obama’s approval,” this source continued, “Valerie has been holding secret meetings with Martin O’Malley [the former Democratic governor of Maryland] and [Massachusetts Sen.] Elizabeth Warren. She’s promised O’Malley and Warren the full support of the White House if they will challenge Hillary for the presidential nomination.”
Which also puts in context the Scott Walker's joke from last night's Gridiron Club annual dinner. As the WSJ reported previously: "... Wisconsin’s Gov. Walker, in his remarks, made a series of jokes about Mrs. Clinton — on the email scandal, her personal wealth and her Wall Street connections. He said that that he has Mrs. Clinton’s private email address: “email@example.com.” He added: “The best part about that joke is Elizabeth Warren wrote it for me."
Actually she didn't, but one wonders if not Obama, then certainly Valerie Jarrett wrote it
