Why can't the press quit the Clintons, cont'd

Blog ››› ››› ERIC BOEHLERT

Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton recently spoke on the phone, with Obama in search of advice from a White House pro on how to protect her children from the media spotlight. Clinton reportedly was generous with her time and advice.

If you don't think that's a news hook for more endless speculation about what the Clintons really think, than you're not cut out to be a modern day Beltway reporter.

Because of course the the D.C. press corps would use that phone call to fire up its incessant Clinton drama engine, the way Politico did, comically insisting the innocuous Cilnton-Obama chat represented, "the latest phase in the ruling-class soap opera that is the Obama-Clinton alliance."

As one Politico commenter counseled, "Ah, just like Politico to keep stirring up old ****! Give it a rest already!"
