There’s a good article about how Obama and his people are going all out for Hillary this fall in a way that’s unusual for a sitting president. (Liz Warren is all in too.) This makes a real difference, Obama is a popular president, despite what Ron Fournier believes, and his campaigns in 2008 and 2012 were spectacular. I don’t buy into the idea that Hillary will be helped much by the fact that she can run more ads than Trump, but I do think her superior get out the vote effort could easily translate into an extra point or two, and no one does get out the vote better than the Obama people.
One thing I’ve always respected about Obama and Hillary is that they don’t make things all about their fee-fees. You probably know that fee-fees got in the way of Gore using a president with a 60% approval rating as a campaign asset. The 2008 Obama-Hillary was unusually nasty, and I’m sure that from time-to-time they feel a slight sting. But fuck fee-fees. Fee-fees never help, they only hurt.
