A conversation between Barack Obama and Bill Clinton has the mainstream media all abuzz. But it is hard to see what possible relevance this has to the election–or anything else. We are supposed to believe that Hillary’s wounded followers will be encouraged because Bill–the source of many of her woes–had some phone chatter with Obama? We’re supposed to see this as a great act of healing within the Democratic Party? (And Clinton’s fundraising and organizational prowess have obviously been entirely upstaged by the Obama team, so it’s hard to see at this point what Bill Clinton could even offer his wife’s former opponent.)
At best you can say the whole episode was a lame attempt to distract attention from the Wesley Clark fiasco. Which probably explains why the Obama camp (and its media friends) made such a big deal over nothing.
