As mentioned, one of the major Invisible Primary players is outgoing Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Last night, Clinton took to the airwaves with the boss to show her moxie and denounce any hint that she was contemplating 2016. The venerable 60 Minutes featured a happy sit-down with Clinton and Obama, two people who have worked well together despite a nasty primary fight 4 years ago. This interview was deemed so newsworthy as to attract preemptive attention from the Sunday morning newsmaker shows, but worry not: The pundits cloaked their "she's running!" excitement in a more staid "it's all about Syria" narrative. At least they are trying to look pensive.
The big question on everyone's mind (and by "everyone," clearly I mean "Joe Biden") is this: What about Joe Biden? His name was not mentioned in the 60 Minutes piece, and one could gather that the president gave some thought into this rather unprecedented atta-boy (atta-girl?) that the POTUS-Sec State interview gave to Hillary. At least over on NBC (as it is wont to do), SNL included a Biden tribute that straight-up framed the Veep as a candidate... Maybe not the best candidate, but a 2016 candidate none the less.
