Gotta love those office politics.
After Hillary won the Iowa Caucus only to lose to Bernie in New Hampshire, the former White House press secretary says the race isn’t as close for the outgoing Prez — because he’s clearly already chosen a side!
Despite a tradition that keeps Obama from officially backing one candidate, CNN contributor Jay Carney — who used to be the White House Press Secretary — told the media powerhouse who he thinks Barack is behind, saying:
“I don’t think there is any doubt that he wants Hillary to win the nomination and believes that she would be the best candidate in the fall and the most effective as president in carrying forward what he’s achieved.
I think the President has signaled, while still remaining neutral, that he supports Secretary Clinton’s candidacy and would prefer to see her as the nominee. [But] he won’t officially embrace her unless and until it’s clear that she’s going to be the nominee.”
Well, you can’t stay neutral and pick a side, but we get what he means.
Plus, we’re sure the fact that Hillary’s already said she thinks Barack would make a great Supreme Court Justice definitely didn’t sway his opinion on the matter.
Do U think President Obama is really a Hillary Clinton supporter??
