I’ve been wondering this for a few weeks now. You’d think she died. I’ve been expecting to hear President Obama and Vice President Biden say “We had an exceptional candidate.” But, instead, nothing. What’s the story? Even in his last press conference today, again nothing.
President Obama and Michelle were in her corner toward the end of the campaign. Bill Clinton saved his campaign with his exceptional convention speech four years ago. President Obama whispered in Hillary’s ear a couple of months ago that he would be with her and yet here he is saying nothing about her.
Even if there are some hard feelings about whether he shared what he knew soon enough, he is the president. He can rise above those. And if there aren’t hard feeling between them, then let’s hear some praise for a race hard run. It’s the least the outgoing administration can do.
