Charles Pierce: In Case You Forgot: President Obama Is Hillary Clinton's Secret Weapon

It strikes me that when Hillary Rodham Clinton becomes the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, she will go into the general election with a murderer's row of campaign surrogates–all of whom seem uniquely suited specifically to torment He, Trump. There's the president. There's Smilin' Joe Biden, who laughed Paul Ryan off the stage. There's Senator Professor Warren. There's HRC's husband, the former president. When Bill Clinton is No. 4 on the depth chart, you're doing very well.

Of course, SPW and the president already began the botheration. SPW is tweeting He, Trump into the ground. And, on Sunday, speaking at commencement at Rutgers, the president brought him down to Chinatown. CBS News reports:

"Facts. Evidence. Reason. Logic. An understanding of science. These are good things. These are qualities you want in people making policy. These are qualities you want to continue to cultivate in yourselves as citizens. We traditionally have valued those things, but if you were listening to today's political debate, you might wonder where this strain of anti-intellectualism came from," he continued. "So class of 2016, let me be as clear as I can be: In politics and in life, ignorance is not a virtue. It's not cool to not know what you're talking about. That's not keeping it real or telling it like it is. That's not challenging political correctness. That's just not knowing what you're talking about. And yet we've become confused about this."


If the best tactic against He, Trump is a lethal concoction of equal parts savvy and ridicule, then HRC's got people with the chops to be deadly with it. At the very least, it ought to be fun.

6. Can't wait for the fun.

The primary hasn't been fun. Taking fire from your own side isn't fun. Returning it isn't too enjoyable either.

But taking on the ANTI:

woman!

minority!

education, intelligence, and the reality of climate change?

f.u.n.

4. He will be on the campaign trail, he will be speaking out for Hillary, it just is not the

right time to come out. Just as Biden has given hints, it is coming and both will be appreciated. They know Hillary, know her abilities and qualifications and they will be of assistance in the campaign and after she is in office.

19. Still waiting for him to fall off the wall

...and break into pieces so many that "all the king's horses, and all the king's men" can't put him together again
Now there is a real scandal.

OH man! oh woman!! Oh oh and oh!

HRC will have surrogates coming out of the woodwork!

All of us keeping our quiet right now during the primaries!

WE ARE READY!!! AND RARING RAH RAH RAH TO GO!!!!

16. A "secret weapon" whose heart will be in it. If BS were the nominee, I don't think his heart...

would be in it. That's why I'll savor this victory even more. I'm not one to count chickens before they hatch, but I know this president both respects and admires Hillary R. Clinton, and I don't think the same can be said of BS.
