Biden Gets Key Endorsement. Again.

While Hillary Clinton gets hung out to dry.

Barack Obama took to CBS’s “60 Minutes” Sunday night to hang Hillary Clinton out to dry. “She made a mistake,” Obama said, speaking about Clinton’s private email server. “She has acknowledged it. I do think that the way it’s been ginned up is in part because of politics. I think she’d be the first to acknowledge that maybe she could have handled the original decision better and the disclosures more quickly.” Having dismissed the issue as “politics,” he also called the server a “legitimate” issue — and then denied any security implications. “Well, I — there’s no doubt that there had been breaches, and these are all a matter of degree. We don’t get an impression that here there was purposely efforts … to hide something or to squirrel away information.” He added, “I can tell you that this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.” He then smirked and added, “I’m gonna leave it to … Hillary when she has an interview with you to address all these questions.” Clearly, Obama’s not happy with her decision and is content now to leave his old rival to deal with political accountability and an FBI investigation.

Meanwhile, he had nothing but glowing things to say about his vice president. “I think Joe [Biden] will go down as one of the finest vice presidents in history, and one of the more consequential,” he said. “He has done great work.” Just a couple of months ago, Obama spokesman Josh Earnest gushed, “The president has indicated that his view that the decision that he made … to add Joe Biden to the ticket as his running mate was the smartest decision that he has ever made in politics. And I think that should give you some sense into the president’s view into the vice president’s aptitude for the top job.” It seems pretty clear that Obama’s old rivalry with the Clintons is still fresh, and that he’d love nothing more than for his No. 2 to win the Democrat nomination.
