Talking to -- now for several months it is that the clintons have more or less given up any hope.
Of getting Obama's endorsement 2016 despite the deal with the deal was basically been tossed over the side the boat.
From what I've been told that Joseph Biden has decided to run for president in 2016.
And Obama saying we'll listen he's my vice president he's a guy who's been very loyal to me for all these years I can't not.

That this president does not show any sign once were but there seems to be no evidence that he's actually running the government -- it seems.
The best I can rack and whether we look at the Justice Department what we look at IRS.
These seem to be political operations out of the west wing.
-- rather than governance.
And these agencies seem to be acting not in behalf of the citizens are supposed to serve.
But rather that the political.
Of the process I think -- true but I think that's a direct result of the fact that after he won in 2008.
Which he was never supposed to do because Hillary was supposed to get the nomination.
At one point he thought he might even lose -- -- you deal with Clinton exactly.
