that Hillary Clinton will turn on Obama for 2016. Her husband already famously hates him. She needs to blame him for the Benghazi fiasco (though of course in reality that was HER poor judgment as much as his). Oh, and why do we still not know where Obama was during those hours? Was he with a foreign spy? Was he with a mistress? Was he with a gay lover? Was he just watching TV? We just don’t know. Still. And that is a blot on the “Palace Guard” media.
But Hillary turning on Obama is already happening. And it will only increase. While she has to be very careful, she also has to do it. She is playing “Operation” for extremely high stakes. Touch a side and she is out.
It’s a hard line to tread: She must acknowledge the reality of Obama’s idiotic foreign policy, but then the bothersome issue is that she was in charge of that foreign policy for almost all the time in question. She might very well lose (or cause to stay home) the Obamaphiles if she hammers him. She can’t (politically) just kick him to the curb. So she has to figure out how to be seen as a loyal lieutenant but can’t afford to be seen as a suck-up toady. That is tough because she was a suck-up toady, and she showed incredibly poor judgment. And unlike her husband, she is just not very likable and not a gifted politician.
