SHIV, INSERTED: Obama Critiques Clinton’s Campaign Strategy.

His message was somewhat veiled, but crystal clear: Democrats at every level should study the Clinton 2016 playbook and learn from its mistakes — then immediately destroy it.

Obama was asked what advice he would give Democrats after a stunning Donald Trump-led Republican wave that gave the GOP the White House, helped it keep more House seats that expected, and keep control of the Senate. His response began like that of a party elder, preaching patience and a search of lessons.

I don’t think Obama’s all that unhappy. If Hillary had won, he’d be a has-been. Now he’s an elder opposition statesman like Bill, but without Bill’s rapey baggage.
