President Obama gave a full-throated endorsement of Hillary Clinton in a video released by the Clinton campaign today. The endorsement is no surprise considering Hillary is going to be the Democratic nominee, but even I was a little surprised at how passionate he was about his support and how excited he said he was to hit the campaign trail on her behalf. I couldn't help but think back to eight years ago when the roles were reversed and Clinton barnstormed the country in support of then Senator Obama.
Another thing I loved about the endorsement is that President Obama spent a lot of time heaping praise on Bernie Sanders and thanked him for his role in the race.
I thought it struck the right tone, but I have to admit that I'm a little surprised he decided to release it on the same day he met with Bernie Sanders. I wish I was a fly on the wall during that meeting.
