That’s right, it looks like the Obama team that beat Hillary like a cheap drum in 2008 is lining up to do it again in 2016.
The website, or at least one of them, set up to encourage Lizzy Borden Warren to run for President in 2016 is featuring a letter signed by 300 of the top Obama campaign gurus and OFA “heavyweights.”
We believed in an unlikely candidate who no one thought had a chance.
We worked for him — and against all odds, we won in Iowa.
We organized like no campaign had organized before — and won the Democratic primary.
We built a movement — and the country elected the first-ever African American president.
We know that the improbable is far from impossible.
Now, former staffers from President Obama’s campaigns, along with former staffers from OFA, are joining with the thousands of Americans who are calling on Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016.
Rising income inequality is the challenge of our times, and we want someone who will stand up for working families and take on the Wall Street banks and special interests that took down our economy.
We urge Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016.
We’d be proud to sign that letter.
We opposed Obama in 2008 and every day since. Nonetheless, we heartily support Lizzy in 2016. We’re pretty sure that in the general election she would likely not even carry Massachusetts against our dead white cat.
We’re equally sure that DWC could beat Hillary. She’s going to peak on the day she announces.
We’re also guffawing like lunatics at the thought of the Obama network supporting Lizzy. It’s pretty common knowledge that the Clintons and the Obamas are not really good friends. We doubt Hill & Billy will be invited to the White House Christmas fest. Assuming, of course, that the White House is “celebrating” Christmas this year. Maybe Michelle will just put an “X” through Hill & Billy and cancel the fest for Xmas. Or maybe the Obamas will celebrate Festivus.
Here’s a snip from the book “Blood Feud” about the First Families…
Outwardly, they put on a show of unity — but privately, the Obamas and Clintons, the two power couples of the Democratic Party, loathe each other.
“I hate that man Obama more than any man I’ve ever met, more than any man who ever lived,” Bill Clinton said to friends on one occasion, adding he would never forgive Obama for suggesting he was a racist during the 2008 campaign.
The feeling is mutual. Obama made excuses not to talk to Bill, while the first lady privately sniped about Hillary.
On most evenings, Michelle Obama and her trusted adviser, Valerie Jarrett, met in a quiet corner of the White House residence. They’d usually open a bottle of Chardonnay, catch up on news about Sasha and Malia, and gossip about people who gave them heartburn.
Their favorite bête noire was Hillary Clinton, whom they nicknamed “Hildebeest,” after the menacing and shaggy-maned gnu that roams the Serengeti.
By the time the election campaigns are getting heated up we’re sure that Barack Obama will have a favorable rating in the low thirties. Billy boy, on the other hand, is still very popular with Democrats even if Hildebeest isn’t.
We’re laying in a big supply of popcorn. 2016 has the trappings of a delicious war of the roses.
