Clinton: Obama Passed ‘3 a.m.’ Test
Hillary Clinton tells George Stephanopoulous that President Obama has passed her test:
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said President Barack Obama has “absolutely” answered questions she posed during the Democratic campaign about his lack of experience and ability to handle an international crisis.
In her first Sunday show interview since her presidential bid ended a year ago, I asked Clinton if Obama answered the questions she raised in her campaign’s “3a.m.” ad.
“Absolutely,” Clinton told me in an exclusive “This Week” Sunday show interview– her first as secretary of state. “And, you know, the president in his public actions and demeanor, and certainly in private with me and with the national security team, has been strong, thoughtful, decisive, I think he is doing a terrific job,” she said, “And it’s an honor to serve with him.”
Granting that Obama’s only been in office a little over four months, I can’t offhand think of any crises with which he’s dealt that would have required rousing him from bed in the wee hours.
