The ebb of power…..

In politics power ebbs and flows, that’s the natural order of things but it’s rare to see it happen as spectacularly as the following scene from the White House Press Room yesterday. For President Obama to cede the podium to former President Clinton (and what is it with the American protocol for retaining your title when you leave office ?!) and then use being later for his wife as an excuse is incredible.

This would be funny if it was not so tragic. It makes you wonder who is advising this guy.

(PS And note the disrespect from President Obama when he refers to his Press Secretary Robert Gibbs as “Gibbs”. This is a man who needs to beware hubris.)
