    Obama to Hillary- I look forward to you advising me…

    Set the wayback machine to some time before the Iowa caucus. The Dow was over 13,000 at the time. What slipped more, the stock market or gas prices since then?……

    Does Hillary say something before she starts cackling? I couldn’t hear it.

    But still, LOL at Obama’s line.

    Franklin: As Obama begins to answer the question, Hillary begins to laugh & blurts out, “I wanna hear that!”, and ‘cackles’ louder. Obama’s further response was, of course, the game winner.

    Thank you, sir! My hearing is rather poor, so I really do appreciate the help.
