Obama Lackey Who Demeaned Hillary in 2008 NOW WANTS YOU TO VOTE FOR HER
Obama speechwriter Jon Favreau was caught demeaning Hillary Clinton in 2008 when the two campaigns were at war for the Democratic nomination. He clearly didn’t like Hillary when she represented a threat to Obama.
Now, he wants people to vote for her.
He writes at The Daily Beast:
Why Electing Hillary in ’16 Is More Important Than Electing Obama in ’08
I hear you’re still not Ready for Hillary.
I get it. I didn’t start off as her biggest fan either. During the 2008 campaign, I wrote plenty of less-than-complimentary words about Hillary Clinton in my role as Barack Obama’s speechwriter. Then, a few weeks after the election, I had a well-documented run-in with a piece of cardboard that bore a striking resemblance to the incoming Secretary of State.
It was one of the stupider, more disrespectful mistakes I’ve made, and one that could have cost me a job if Hillary hadn’t accepted my apology, which she did with grace and humor. As a result, I had the chance to serve in the Obama administration with someone who was far different than the caricature I had helped perpetuate.
The most famous woman in the world would walk through the White House with no entourage, casually chatting up junior staffers along the way. She was by far the most prepared, impressive person at every Cabinet meeting. She worked harder and logged more miles than anyone in the administration, including the president.
So he wasn’t ready for Hillary in 2008 but he wants others to accept her now?
