Team Obama Putting Bill Clinton Under Microscope


NY Times: Obama’s transition team is vetting the former president’s “finances and activities” as they consider offering Hillary Clinton the secretary of state role.

Aides to both sides say Obama is likely to ask her to take the job: “I can’t believe they would have her schlep out there with all this publicity unless they were real about it.”

Politico’s Mike Allen: “Team Obama, after all but offering SecState to Senator Clinton, is expressing EXASPERATION with the Clinton camp for the difficulty in getting a clean vet on President Bill Clinton’s many entanglements.”
