Obama, Hillary Clinton meet privately at the White House

Source: AP-Excite

WASHINGTON (AP) President Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton met privately at the White House Monday afternoon.

The White House says the former rivals-turned-colleagues met for about an hour and discussed a range of issues.

Obama and Clinton have met occasionally since she left the administration in 2013 after serving as secretary of state. Monday's meeting comes as Clinton prepares to launch another presidential campaign.

1. H Clinton was B Obama's SoS, so they are undoubtedly on the same page

about a great many of the most important things.

It pains me that H Clinton hired V. Nuland, fresh from D. Cheney's side, and used V. Nuland to continue shaping the ME WoT. It pains me that V. Nuland, a PNACer to in her bones, has continued to rise under SoS J. Kerry.

That, to me, is creepy and wrong.

It's too bad. I have to live with not liking it.

27. Not that I've ever said that he was, but his foreign policy of war in the middle east

 

and especially the drone killings in sovereign states does make the neocons very happy.

13. Excuse me? In what way is Obama a NeoCon? Why did the GOP Congress have to resort

to treason in order to kick start the war in Iran if Obama was in the NeoCon camp?

26. Yes, they know exactly who Victoria Nuland is, how she served Dick Cheney,

and how she was immediately hired to serve Hillary Clinton and now John Kerry.
They know exactly what PNAC is. They know the consequences of expanding fields of never-ending war for profit.

They know exactly who Robert Kagan is, and how he and Victoria Nuland, his wife, are now total HRC supporters and call themselves the new breed of "liberal interventionists". You can't make this shit up.

The technique from here on will be denial denial denial, pretending the past didn't exist, that the present doesn't exist, and that there is no portent of the future under a HRC presidency. Mixed with uplifting photos of HRC expressing extreme happiness, or deep concern. The campaign will be all promises re. what one HRC booster called "kitchen counter issues". Like this week's income equality that'll happen just like magic. Because like other aspects of HRC's reality, the TPP isn't to be discussed, noway, nohow.

Wow, does the Democratic party ever need a robust primary. A political bubble like that just isn't viable.

3. "Clinton posted a message on Twitter praising Obama's health care law and its provisions aimed at

covering young people and those with preexisting conditions."

Good! Mahalo Steve

"..In a jab at Republicans who want to get rid of the law, she wrote: "Repeal those things? Embrace them!

To emphasize her point, Clinton shared an old photo of her and Obama hugging."[/b[

15. Yes, it's not about their egos. It's about the people. Here's the pic when the ACA passed:



Hillary Clinton embraces Obamacare at White House meeting with president

Former secretary of state tweets image of hug with Barack Obama in support of Affordable Care Act while Republican candidate Ted Cruz promises repeal

@HillaryClinton
#ACA@5:

19. Obama was brilliant to ask Hillary to serve as Secretary of State

It helped us all heal. It was a strategic forward thinking move politically. Most of all we were shown Obama's humility and his knack of putting country before politics. Great move. Yes I vote for Hillary or whoever our nominee will be. Our Democratic field so strong. Republicans ... not so much.

They like and respect each other.
