The vaunted data-driven machine that twice got President Barack Obama elected is revving up to help elect Hillary Clinton, as Democrats look to recreate the tactical advantage they used against Republicans in 2008 and 2012.
With Obama's popularity rebounding, Democrats have been eagerly awaiting the president's return to campaigning, and he'll hold his debut event for her Tuesday in North Carolina. Yet campaign officials say just as critical to her success could be an Obama political operation that remains potent four years after his re-election, including deep troves of voter and donor information, and a corps of trained field staffers and volunteers that Clinton's campaign is now co-opting.
The crown jewel of Obama's machine, an email list of supporters that included 20 million addresses in 2012, is now fully available to Clinton.
Well this is great news since clearly President Obama's campaign team knows how to win presidential elections.
It should also serve as yet another indication that Hillary Clinton is not going to face any legal repercussions from the FBI probe into her private server.
Simply put there is NO WAY that President Obama would put all of these resources at her disposal if he thought there was even the slimmest of possibilities that she would face indictment.
Which is something by the way that the Libertarian presidential candidate also agrees with.
