Best Line In The Morning Newspaper


One line in a political story this morning was phrased perfectly to bring a smile, I suspect, to the face of many newspaper readers.  The story concerned how Hillary Clinton is distancing herself from President Obama as she prepares for a 2016 run for the White House.

Bill Whalen, a research fellow at the Hoover Institution and former chief speech writer for Pete Wilson when the Republican was California’s governor, suggested that Mrs. Clinton’s distancing strategy at least partly reflects Mr. Obama’s lackluster popularity.

“If the president had 60% approval ratings, she would be hitching her wagon to him,” Mr. Whalen said. “At 40%, he’s an anchor.” Still, given the delicate spot Mrs. Clinton is in, “to the extent that she throws him under the bus, she has to run over him at a very slow speed.”
