I don’t know about you, but I’m old enough to remember a debate when Hillary Clinton attacked Bernie Sanders for saying that Barack Obama hasn’t done enough to bridge the divide between Americans and Congress.
So it stands to reason that Hillary should now have to answer for the same criticism of Obama from her husband Bill, who told a crowd in Memphis last night that Obama wasn’t a “changemaker” who was able to get Congress to work with him.
What’s next? Is Bill going to go all 2008 and say that the whole Obama presidency was just a big fairy tale?

But in talking about the struggles of middle- and lower-class America, Clinton was met with silence when he said President Barack Obama wasn’t a “change-maker” like Hillary. He clarified a few sentences later that Obama has had accomplishments, including the Affordable Care Act.
“Yeah, it’s rigged,” he said, speaking of the financial system, “because you don’t have a president who’s a change-maker, who has a Congress who will work with him. But the president has done a better job than he has gotten credit for.”
