Obama, Clinton share screen in ‘60 Minutes’ interview

Source: Washington Post

She was the chief rival in his first-term “team of rivals” Cabinet.

But on Sunday, outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton served as President Obama’s chief cheerleader— and the feeling for a half-hour of prime-time television was gushingly mutual.

The two smiled, bantered and chuckled like chums throughout their appearance on CBS’s “60 Minutes,” the first time Obama has been interviewed as president with a person other than his wife.

It was a performance, tracing with little turbulence the course of their relationship, by a pair of all-pro politicians whose public lives and future legacies are entwined. The message: This all worked out well, don’t you think?

1. President Hillary45. For the continuation of President Obama's 8 years, we want another 8 yrs after

 

President Obama44 elevated by President Clinton45 in 2018 for the US Supreme Court(like Taft)
then PresidentMichelle46 for another 8 years(2024 and 2028)
then by that time allowances for a President to run for another two terms non consecutive
so President Barack Obama47

32 years of the agenda of President Obama.

let's see that takes it to Jan.2037.

The two looked wonderful together tonight.

And I hope Hillary45 wins the noble peace prize next year.
It is going to be decades before there is someone as SOS half as good.

3. Yes, it was such a pleasure to hear 2 intelligent people discussing

the issues around United Sates foreign policy, diplomacy, etc.

Not simple minded "Rah, Rah, USA #!" stuff, but the thoughtful discussion of where and how the U.S, wirjs wuth foreign policy issues.

The body language in this @60Minutes interview is very telling. Relaxed. Respect. Hard earned but quite evident.

Thanks alp

7. It was relaxed interview between two very smart people.

They seem to have forged a good working relationship. It was classy of Obama to suggest the interview in the first place.
