I just love The New York Times when it provides us with candid glimpses into the everyday life and behavioral idiosyncrasies of our President.
In the latest puff piece by Steven Lee Myers, The New York Times portrays Sec. of State Hillary Clinton as a “Rock-Star Diplomat”.
The article drones on about Clinton’s loyalty to Obama after she lost to him in the primary. Once Obama made his “gutsy call’ to bring Hillary into the fold and offer her the Sec. State position, the NYT claims that she not only didn’t want the job, but was persistent in her attempts to decline the position.
(Her aides say Obama would not take no for an answer; he avoided at least one phone call from her, the story goes, by having an aide explain he was in the bathroom.) - NYT
The visual of Obama hiding in the toilet to avoid Clinton’s refusal is patently absurd.
Perhaps this was a clue that he was not ready for prime time.
