Chris Matthews keeps saying something's up with the Obama/Clinton interview

President Barack Obama said Friday that he wanted to do a joint interview with Secretary of State Hillary Clinton because he wants the country to appreciate the extraordinary role she has played in his administration.
"Well, the main thing is I just wanted to have a chance to publicly say thank you, because I think Hillary will go down as one of the finest secretaries of state we've had," he said during the sitdown with "60 Minutes." "It has been a great collaboration over the last four years.

"I'm going to miss her, wish she was sticking around but she has logged in so many miles I can't begrudge her wanting to take it easy for a little bit," he said. "But I want the country to appreciate what an extraordinary role she's played during the course of my administration. A lot of the successes we've had internationally have been because of her hard work."
While it appeared rather like an endorsement for Clinton's possible political aspirations, potentially a future presidential run, he did not explicitly say so in the clip broadcast Friday on the "CBS Evening News." The rest of the interview is scheduled to air during "60 Minutes" on Sunday."One of the things that I say to people, because I think it helps them understand, I say look, in politics and in democracy, sometimes you win elections and sometimes you lose elections. And I worked very hard but I lost," she said. "And then President Obama asked me to be secretary of state and I said yes.

"And why did he ask me and why did I say yes? Because we both love our country."

So, I guess she's running?

10. Not necessarily.

 

Reagan stayed out of Poppy's primary against Dole.

And let's face it, it's Hillary's if she wants it, the whole thing is hers if she wants it.

Obama will tell Biden to stand down.

19. Mark my words: it'll be "None of the Above"

Don't laugh. If I had posted here on January 25th, 2005 that the Dem's nominee would be Barak Obama, everybody here would have chorused "Who??"

Same thing will happen this time around. It'll be someone who's not even on the radar screen.

21. That only happens when the party has been out of power for a while

You might be right, but it's a different dynamic. I really don't see anything standing in the way of Clinton getting the nod if she wants it.

3. Chris Matthews is ALWAYS saying something

Over David Corn. Why does that man even show up. Poor man can't even get a sentence in before Chris opens his yap again. And he does the same thing to Eugene Robinson too.

14. I beg to differ! Chris LIKES Joy Ann Reid. I think she's the only guest that's allowed

to finish a sentence on his show............

I like listening to Joy Ann Reid, too. She makes a lot of sense.

You may be right, she MAY be the only one!

Doesn't matter whether he 'likes' guests or not; he generally can't keep himself from interrupting.

5. I don't think she's running.

I totally understand Hillary wanting to retire.
She's been there, done that.

She's served her husband and family; she's served her nation in a most extraordinary way.

Not that she won't be active and contribute.
But, she should be able to pick and choose the time and place.

22. Sorry

Prez. Obama is ineligible to be the VP because he is ineligible to be Prez another term. The person who is vice president must be eligible to be President; having been elected President two times, he is now ineligible for another term as President.

She is great and should go ahead and do whatever she chooses. Chris is fun, and sometimes I yell 'shut up' at the TV because he really cannot control his disease of interrupting. Just who he is.

20. There is no one I want more.

 

I like Senator Elizabeth Warren, but she doesn't have the Washington experience.

I like Vice President Biden, but the years he has spent cultivating his "lovable goof" personna work against him.

I wouldn't mind seeing Senator Kerry take another run at it, but that rarely happens.

26. anyone who doesn't think Hillary45 is running, has been asleep and doesn't know the game of politics

 

Hillary45.

It's a given.

only thing she didn't have in 2008 was President Obama's voters.(like me personally).

in 2016, she has me totally.

like the old John Houseman commercial "She earned it".

27. Can you expound on that statement? what does Mathews say? other than

something's up.

I ask because I know it's a rag (albeit they did have John Edwards stuff right) but my husband saw National Enquirer at the grocery store and the cover said brain cancer.

28. Matthews talked about the 60 minutes

interview and said something's up. That's about it . Good god, hope the Enquirer is as wrong as it usually is.

29. Should be interesting. I did feel a lot better when I saw

her testify. If there had been something serious involved, there is no way should
could have been so lucid and commanding of the facts.
