President Barack Obama’s (D) former Senior Advisor, David Axelrod, commented on Democratic Party Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s near-collapse and subsequent release of the claim that she’d been diagnosed with pneumonia two days prior:
Antibiotics can take care of pneumonia. What’s the cure for an unhealthy penchant for privacy that repeatedly creates unnecessary problems?
He’s right, but I have a few questions about his piping up.
Why? What’s his motive, what does he gain from breaking Democratic ranks?
Or is he just asking questions, and it’s on Clinton to provide answers? This is what he did when he smeared the Chamber of Commerce a few years ago:
CBS chief Washington correspondent Bob Schieffer: Mr Axelrod, do you have any evidence that it’s [alleged illegal foreign contributions to the Chamber] anything other than peanuts?
Axelrod: Well, do you have any evidence that it’s not, Bob?
Or is he continuing his grudge against the Clintons over their conflicts during the 2008 Democratic Primary campaign?
Or is he just tired of not being in the spotlight, and is angling for more attention now that his BFF Obama’s days are numbered?
