Woodward Tweaks Axelrod: You Tested Swapping Biden for Clinton, but Not Healthcare.gov?
The Washington Post’s Bob Woodward had some fun at the expense of former Obama senior adviser David Axelrod as he tried to both defend the president’s health-care law’s performance this month and downplay efforts to replace Vice President Joe Biden with Hillary Clinton during the 2012 election. Axelrod argued that “due diligence” required looking into the possibility of bringing in Clinton.
“We tested everything — that was our job,” Axelrod said on Meet the Press.
“Everything but Obamacare,” Woodward quipped.
