CNN Previews The State Of The Obama-Clinton 3rd Term
CNN reports on a newly-released memo by America Rising that explains why John Podesta’s departure from the White House and join Hillary Clinton’s nascent 2016 campaign is just the latest signal that a Clinton presidency would serve as Obama’s third term.
“Tim Miller, the executive director of America Rising, an anti-Clinton communications and research super PAC, argues in talking points to other Republicans that Clinton is tying herself to Obama by working with and hiring many of his staffers ahead of her all-but-certain 2016 run.
‘By hiring his key political and policy staff and making no public moves to place clear distance between herself and the President on issues likely to be front and center in the coming Congress, Clinton is signaling that she’s not just from the same party as the President, but that she’s an Obama Democrat, who will back his policies, pursue his agenda, and represent a Third Term of the Obama Administration,’ Miller argues in a memo to the group’s supporters.”
Liberal pundits have already admitted as such. Last night, MSNBC’s Chris Matthews said Podesta’s hiring proves Clinton and Obama are “going to stay very close together.”
