Everyone Knows Obama Wants Clinton to Win...Maybe He Should Just Say It

In case it wasn't obvious already:
President Barack Obama will not endorse a candidate in the Democratic primary, but there is no doubt where he is leaning, according to former White House press secretary Jay Carney.
"I think the president has signaled while still remaining neutral that he supports Secretary Clinton's candidacy and who prefer to see her as the nominee," Carney said on CNN Wednesday following coverage of the president's speech to the Illinois state Senate in Springfield.
Carney added:
"I don't think there is any doubt that he wants Hillary to win the nomination and believes she would be the best candidate in the fall and the most effective as president in carrying forward what he has achieved."
And just in case you missed this quote yesterday from the president himself:
“As the process goes on and people see how they react, I think they recognize that this is a pretty serious job and you’ve got to make sure that the person who’s in the job is somebody who has the judgment to lead and not just to mouth slogans.”
Gee...who could he possibly be talking about?

Continuing and expanding on the progress of the Obama administration has been the major point in Hillary Clinton's campaign from the beginning. For instance, her regular line about the president not getting the credit he deserves for saving our country from another great depression always results in enthusiastic applause. Plus, the only person she's running against has been a Democrat for only a few months, wants to ditch the president's signature legislative achievement (Obamacare) for something else, has raised zero money for the party, has almost zero party support, and is unelectable. So why not go ahead and step in?

Okay, I guess there are some good reasons why not...especially right now. Still, Hillary's unwavering loyalty to her former boss has arguably hurt more than helped her in the first two contests, and he's probably well aware of that. 

Assuming that an official presidential endorsement isn't coming before Hillary locks this thing up, maybe he should just keep strongly hinting and heaping massive praise upon his former Secretary of State instead.

Or maybe he get around it by asking this guy to endorse her instead.
