Obama's Bittergate remark -- which I broke and which is revisited in David Plouffe's new book -- was and still is one of the biggest stories of that historic presidential run. It is also still one of the least understood. Here's the untold story behind it.
Joe Biden was a bad choice from the beginning. The man is "bitter and angry." Biden spoke his mind during the primary, when he stated that Obama was not ready to be president and that the presidency was no place for on the job training. If that didn't tip Obama off, what will?
Obama's bounce in the polls this week is more than a mere candidate "surge." It's a repudiation of the nattering nabob media which imagined clumsy wording could send his campaign into a glorious tailspin.
Clinton is not a bump-and-a-brew kind of gal. She's just not. But she is a political animal, so she downed a boilermaker at a place called Bronko's in IN to gain popularity with people with whom she has nothing in common.
