Skip to comments.Obama to tell foe-to-friend story at Hillary Clinton event
Posted on 07/04/2016 6:17:21 AM PDT by Hojczyk
They've been bitter rivals, allies and colleagues.
When they take the stage at their first joint campaign appearance on Tuesday, President Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will show off a new phase in their storied relationship: co-dependents.
Clinton's chances of winning the White House hinge on rallying Obama's coalition to her cause. Obama's legacy depends on her success. Eight years after they spent millions tearing each other down in pursuit of the White House, they will now spend countless words and four months selling each other to the public.
The foe-to-friend story will be at the center of the Obama-Clinton show in Charlotte, North Carolina, aides to both say. In his remarks, the president will act as a character witness for his former secretary of state, who is struggling to convince voters of her trustworthiness and honesty. There is no better politician to testify on her behalf, many Democrats believe, than the man who once counted himself among the Clinton skeptics but came around to be one of her biggest boosters.
"I think that he can be very helpful, particularly with Democratic voters and some independent voters who have doubts," said David Axelrod, the chief architect of Obama's 2008 race for the Democratic nomination against Clinton. "He can do that by sharing his own experience. They were rivals, they had their differences; that gives him some additional standing."
The Clinton campaign also is hoping Obama acts as a reminder of another, more popular chapter in Clinton's career. For four years, Obama trusted her to circle the globe representing his foreign policy to the world. She sat at his side in the Situation Room. She was the good soldier, putting aside her political ego to join the administration of the man who defeated her.

I’m sure it will be a gripping story that will really turn the tide for her.
Criminals find a commonality much like the mafia, we may disagree and not get along but the common goal and money are the lynch pin
Going to be " all about me".
It’s a story, alright.
Which is the bigger lie?
“I never had sex with that woman”
“if you like your doctor, you can keep him”
they all need to be gone
When is Barry going to fire Loretta?
Should be a doozey....the Royal Idiot steps up to the teleprompter, again.
"Of course I was angry when Bill remarked that a few years ago I would have been getting his coffee. But, now that Hillary has carried my bags for the past few years, I think we're even. It's THE TRANSFORMATION that's important, after all."
After all, he does find her “likeable enough”.
Hussein and Hillary love each other. Try to keep your breakfast down this 4th of July!
Not just his legacy - Obama almost certainly participated in the criminal acts himself surrounding the Clinton Foundation Slush Fund/selling-America’s-secrets to our Moslem enemies and HAS to protect her so HE doesn’t get exposed for treason along with her.
Just reading the title line, I wanted to up-chuck.
I wonder when Obama got the word there would be no indictment
Clinton exchanged emails with Obama. The two were certainly colluding on some unsavory things. Wouldn’t it be interesting if the FBI knows what some of those conversations were about? It raises some intriguing possibilities.
Do you honestly think Barky would spend one second with Hillary if he didn’t think she was going to lose this election?
NO!!! He can’t stand the Clintons, and they can’t stand him...the ONLY reason Barky is doing this is to fulfill his third term...he knows she isn’t qualified, look at her record at Rose Law Firm, look at her Arkansas First Ladyship, look at her America’s First Lady, look at her Senate record, look at her campaign while running against Barky (it wasn’t all to do with him being the First Half Wit of America) she wasn’t and still isn’t qualified, and then look at her Sec. of State record...
How much more gutter politics do we have to have shoved down our throats by the evil, vile Clintons before people wake up? He wants his stuff finished, and he’s using her to do it...
Stand Up America, don’t let this happen to our Great Country!!!
Hillary will make OBAMA look good
yes - see my #12. Pray for the FBI this week end. Also that the GOPe will unite behind Trump and call foul on what is going on - unless or until they do they are traitors themselves.
I don’t know how the Clintons could make a crab look good...both the Barkys and the Clintons are door mats under my feet...LOL...
