For general discussion and debate. Possible talking point: another former Clinton administration official backs Obama:
The endorsement in question is that of Robert Reich, Bill Clinton's first Secretary of Labor and a friend of both the former president and his wife for four decades. Around 1 p.m. EST, Reich informs me, he intends formally to declare his support for Obama on his blog.
What do these high-level defections mean? Are they more about what folks think of Obama or Hillary? Or Bill?If so many supposed "friends" and "associates" of the Clintons don't want them back in the White House, doesn't it suggest that conservative disdain for this couple is much more appropriate than the media's reverence?
