The best interpretation so far of Obama’s aborted press conference with Clinton
Obama called the former president in to make the case he was unable to make himself and then left to party.

My explanation as to why Obama left the press is far more prosaic. Characteristically Clinton was sucking in all the oxygen and Obama found himself suffocating and had to leave. Clinton and Obama have many attributes in common: narcissism, extroversion, charm, and phoniness. In physics we have a law called the Pauli Exclusion Principle: no two electrons can have all the same quantum numbers in a single atom. Something similar seems to operate with human psychology where two people can’t exist in the same psychosis. In the 1972 British comedy film, The Ruling Class, Jack, the 14th Earl of Gurney, played by Peter O’Toole, suffers from the delusion that he’s Jesus. In a last ditch effort to pry Jack out of his psychosis he gets introduced to McKyle who also thinks he’s Jesus. The therapy works, only Jack switches from a harmless lunatic who believes he’s Jesus to a violent psychopath who can play act a being sane perfectly. Both Clinton and Obama are in essence pretenders— empty suits. They cannot occupy the same space.December 14

Remember how after the midterm elections, liberals were whining about how the presidency was too big for just one man to handle? Newsweek had an article devoted to it. Well, I think that Clinton is now Obama’s co-president. The benefit is three-fold: (1) Clinton gets to be president again, (2) Obama will have a better chance of re-election in 2012, and (3) Hillary will be less likely to run a primary challenge against Obama. I’m sure there’s something in this for the Clintons. I doubt they’d be helping Obama from the goodness of their hearts. Clinton likely made a quid pro quo deal with Obama. “If I save your a__, here’s what you’re going to do for me and Hillary.”
