Mr. Righteous: The Movie

This week’s throwdown between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton started last Thursday night at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, when Obama quipped, “I’m not running because I am trying to fulfill some long-held plans.” Clinton’s campaign countered that Obama had dreams of the presidency starting in kindergarten, and things just went downhill from there. This week’s News in Five takes a look at the latest Obama-Clinton spat in the context of Obama’s holier-than-thou candidacy, as described by Rich Lowry in the Dec. 3rd NRODT cover story, “Mr. Righteous.”

Tune in next week for a new episode.
