(Newser) – In a scene that would have been hard to imagine during the bruising 2008 primary campaign, President Obama and Hillary Clinton acted like old friends during their joint interview on 60 Minutes last night, the Washington Post reports. Obama thanked his departing secretary of state for her service, but the pair didn't give anything away when interviewer Steve Kroft pressed for answers on a possible Clinton White House bid in 2016.

"You guys in the press are incorrigible," laughed Obama. "I was literally inaugurated four days ago. And you’re talking about elections four years from now." Clinton added, "I don't think either he or I can make predictions about what's going to happen tomorrow or the next year." The wide-ranging interview also touched on foreign policy issues including Benghazi as well as Clinton's health. She said she was doing "great," but with "some lingering effects from falling on my head and having the blood clot."

Obama and Clinton were smart to parade themselves in the spotlight, complimenting each other in front of their fans on the left (including me) as she steps down. I realize that it is merely uncontrollable knee-jerk reactionism that forces y'all on the right to take out your ire, even against inconsequential showboating. Since I pity all on the right who can't come up with any insults more creative than the tired old "drinking the kool-aid" reference that is used in any and all situations imaginable, I will provide you with something you may take and use as though you had come up with it yourselves: - Damn, why don't they just 69 each other and get it over with?? -

They're hoping all of the fools keep drinking the kool-aid. Enjoy, brainless!
