I can't think of, not saying there wasn't, another President doing that for his opponent in the Primaries. I think she has treated him, for most part, equally as well. I understand that she must move away from his presidency in part to make her case that she is a leader with her own thoughts of how she would run things. They seem to honestly respect each other.
