Obama Foreshadows Biden's Entry and Hillary's Exit

United States v Brazil - Men's Exhibition Game

Here comes Uncle Joe, driving the bus over Hillary Clinton!

Of course, Vice President Biden won’t announce until he’s coming in on a white horse, smile and all.  He’s already hitting his stride, approaching the margin of error in Iowa and climbing in New Hampshire, while Hillary tumbles.

I’ve been predicting for a while now that Biden will enter the race the day after Hillary’s indictments are unsealed, and now we might be closer to that singular point on the Time-Space Election Continuum™.

Edward Klein said the “White House has been saying ‘Go, Joe, Go!’”

Furthermore, Klein thinks “the Obama White House does not want to see Hillary Clinton succeed Barack Obama in the Oval Office,” adding that “they don’t feel like she has the kind of principles, and stands for the same kind of thing that he does.”

“According to my sources, Barack Obama has said [he] will throw the entire backing of the White House, the Democratic National Committee, money, and if possible, even the minority vote” at Biden in return for a say in his choice of running mate, Klein said.

And President Obama is doing his part, throwing Hillary under the bus on “60 Minutes.”

Twice in the same breath, Obama called Hillary’s email scandal “a mistake,” and said “This is one of those issues that I think is legitimate.”

The president said there wasn’t a national security problem, and halfheartedly said the issue was political, “in part.”  But there was no love, only a couple of bus headlights.

As to the big question:

Steve Kroft: Do you agree with what President Clinton has said and Secretary Clinton has said, that this is not– not that big a deal. Do you agree with that?

President Barack Obama: Well, I’m not going to comment on–

Steve Kroft: You think it’s not that big a deal–

President Barack Obama: What I think is that it is important for her to answer these questions to the satisfaction of the American public. And they can make their own judgment. I can tell you that this is not a situation in which America’s national security was endangered.

Steve Kroft: This administration has prosecuted people for having classified material on their private computers.

President Barack Obama: Well, I– there’s no doubt that there had been breaches, and these are all a matter of degree. We don’t get an impression that here there was purposely efforts– on– in– to hide something or to squirrel away information. But again, I’m gonna leave it to–

Steve Kroft: If she had come to you.

President Barack Obama: I’m going to leave it to Hillary when she has an interview with you to address all these questions.

Sounds like Obama is foreshadowing something: there’s no doubt that Biden will run, and we’re just waiting for the indictments.
