CNN’s Hamby: Former WH Official Says Obama ‘Good at Campaigning, Maybe Not Governing’

At least one former Obama White House official thinks the president is more suited for the campaign trail than the Oval Office, according to CNN political reporter Peter Hamby.

“I talked to a former Obama White House person just before Christmas when Obama was sort of adrift, figuring out what to do. His poll numbers were pretty low,” Hamby said on New Day on Monday. “He said, ‘Look, the president needs to find an issue to campaign on. This is what he’s good at. He’s really good at campaigning, maybe not governing,’ according to this Democrat.”
