The Obamas and the Clintons break bread

By Richard K. Barry

According to NBC News, the White House confirmed that the president and the First Lady dined with former President Clinton and the former Secretary of State last week. White House spokesman Josh Earnest (good name for a spokesman) said that the March 1st dinner was a "private affair" and that no details would be provided about what was discussed.

I'm sure there is nothing particularly significant about this, though ensuring that relations between the two powerhouse families remain positive could be a key to any potential presidential run Hillary might have in mind. The Obama machine was surely something to behold last year and making certain that key technology and personnel are available for 2016 would be a big deal.

This gives a whole different meaning to the idea that the personal is political.
