Erika Johnsen @ Hot Air:
President Obama and outgoing Secretary of State Clinton sat down together for a 60 Minutes interview, aired last night, that I’d say was approximately zero parts hard-hitting foreign-policy discussion and all parts mutually complementary chucklefest (marking the first time the president has sat down for a joint interview with anyone other than the FLOTUS, by the way):
Yes, we get it: You two are great buddies, you’ve enjoyed an [arguably, hem hem] successful foreign-policy working partnership throughout Obama’s first term, and everything between you personally and professionally is hunky-dory. Kirsten Powers, et al, were decidedly not impressed with the whole softball-lobbing spectacle on Fox News this morning, and also wondered — what does this level of all-too-friendly endorsement mean for Obama’s loyal vice president?

It was really something you would expect from like, the state-run media. It was that kind of level of propaganda as far as I’m concerned. … I can understand maybe in agreeing to the interview, letting them have maybe one softball question in the beginning and then move on to more important things. This was a joke.
