Today, Hillary Clinton met President Obama for lunch at the White House (Hillary Clinton GROUP)

Just heard Rachel report it. It's the first time they met after VP Biden announced he wouldn't be running for president. That this is made public kind of hints at something here... To me, it hints where President Obama's preference lies, because those are some powerful optics!



It was lunchtime at the White House for President Obama and Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton today.

The former rivals-turned-amicable colleagues met privately for a 90-minute "informal lunch" at the White House, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said.

"When their schedules permit, President Obama and Secretary Clinton enjoy the opportunity to catch up in person," Earnest said.

The lunch was not on Obama's or Hillary Clinton's public schedules, and the White House did not disclose what exactly the two discussed.

1. Wouldn't you like to be a 'fly on the wall' for this 90 minute conversation?

Of course, a fly not too near President Obama!

14. Hahaha, Cha! Spiders are slower than flies, and we know how quick President Obama is

when making short work of a buzzing but quick insect!

13. As was pointed out to me, it's a photo of their lunch a few years ago, but there aren't

any pictures of them during this latest unscheduled lunch, and it's the picture ABC used.

"Mostly"! But, not all! Thank you!

8. Powerful optics? This pic is from a lunch in 2013. Sorry to blow up the 'after Biden meeting' analys

Hillary Clinton, President Obama share ‘chiefly social’ lunch as speculation mounts about a Clinton White House bid.

The Monday meeting sparked questions about whether the pair discussed the former secretary of state’s rumored presidential ambitions.

9. PS. This is an example of propaganda. Did Rachael use an old pic to reference today's lunch?

 

Turn off the TV.

11. Nah, it's not "an example of progaganda. President Obama and Hillary had a "secret lunch" today

whether you like it or not.

The pic was at the link so I certainly didn't know it wasn't from today.

But, you immediately go to "propaganda" like you have some big Gotcha moment when you have Nothing.

17. Actually, it's not the fact that they had lunch together that surprises me,

it's that they are lunching outdoors in DC in December. Just how warm was it yesterday over there? I'm in NJ and it's been pretty warm too for December, but it would be too chilly to eat outside.

As for the lunch, they have had private lunches in the past. They have become friends.
