The Cling Thing

As expected, an early question about Bitterclingelitistgate.

Obama rails against the tendency in campaigns to "take one comment that wasn’t properly phrased and beat it to death." As an example, he cites Clinton’s "baking cookies" line from the early '90s. Reversal!

Clinton responds calmly, unhurriedly, that whatever his intentions, Obama managed to offend a large number of people.

If that’s that, then Obama got off fairly easy.

ALSO: Obama sounds so tired. Looks like he's about to nod off midsentence. Maybe they should give him a pillow.
