'Four years later, she won’t stop drunk-texting me from Cartagena'

excerpt from President Barack Obama‘s remarks at the White House Correspondents Association Dinner:

PRESIDENT:

Despite many obstacles, much has changed during my time in office. Four years ago, I was locked in a brutal primary battle with Hillary Clinton. Four years later, she won’t stop drunk-texting me from Cartagena. (Laughter.)







from President Obama's Rolling Stone interview last week:

The hourlong discussion was the longest and most substantive interview the president has granted in over a year. When executive editor Eric Bates and I joined him in the Oval Office, he began by signaling his staff to push back his schedule. "Just call Secretary Clinton's office and tell her we're going to be about 10 minutes late," he said . . .

After the interview ended, we found Hillary sitting in a small chair, scrunched between the desk of Obama's secretary and the door to the Oval Office. The two former rivals now seem completely at ease with each other. Clinton joked about the popularity of the fake Tumblr site Texts From Hillary Clinton, and Obama began to air-thumb an imaginary text. "See, I'm hip," he said with a laugh.

5. I laughed out loud!

I still had in my head both the pics from Cartagena of Hil dancing and drinking beer, and the Texts from Hillary.
