Earlier today, Hillary Clinton's former campaign manager, Bill de Blasio, passed up an opportunity to endorse his former boss. De Blasio, the mayor of New York City, told NBC's Chuck Todd he'd wait to see "an actual vision" from Clinton before offering his support.
But that appears to have upset a leader of the pro-Clinton super PAC Ready for Hillary.
Hilary Rosen, who is on the super PAC's finance council, took to Twitter to voice her displeasure.
"@BilldeBlasio's self aggrandizing on #MeetthePress at @hillaryclintons expense won't go un noticed. #Ridiculous," tweeted Rosen, a Democratic strategist.
The Scrapbook is sorry to hear that Andrew Marshall is retiring from the Pentagon, where he has led the Department of Defense’s internal think tank, the Office of Net Assessment, since 1973. Frankly, The Scrapbook is also a bit surprised. Marshall’s popular nickname, Yoda—taken from the sage of the Star Wars epic—while honoring his sagacity, wisdom, and mystery, is also testimony to his longevity. Marshall has served every defense secretary since James Schlesinger and every president since Richard Nixon, and it’s difficult to imagine the Pentagon without him.
Where's the civility, I ask you? Was it not just this weekend that former President Bill Clinton warned that words have power, and that in voicing dissent, we should be careful not to get out of hand? And yet, here we have a group of protesters registering their discontent with the government within close physical proximity of the actual president of the United States.
