Obama White House Chief Counsel and former Clinton Chief-of-Staff John Podesta seems to be setting the stage for a Hillary takeover, much to the distaste of potential candidate Vice President Joe Biden.
According to a report in Tuesday’s Wall Street Journal, the Obama senior adviser wants to arrange a weekly meeting with Mrs. Clinton and her aides to prep for the 2016 run.
Speaking on CNN’s Inside Politics, reporter John King said that not only was Podesta pushing a Hillary candidacy, but that former White House Deputy Chief-of-Staff for Operations Jim Messina had left to manage a Super PAC on her behalf.
Host Peter Hamby remarked that “heads must be exploding in the vice president’s office,” as this disrespect “really has to stick in his craw, I think.”
