Obama, Biden to Campaign for Clinton in NC Next Week


Obama did not mention Friday's disclosure from the FBI that it's examining a new stash of emails that may be related to the agency's investigation of Clinton's private server.

Trump's campaign would surely love to have Clinton's organization and attention to detail.

And "big" might be an understatement.

"She is as talented and brilliant a person as there is, and I could not be prouder of her, but Michelle does not have the patience or the inclination to actually be a candidate herself, and that's one thing you all can take to the bank", President Barack Obama said on the "Sway in the Morning" show in an interview that aired Friday, part of a get-out-the-vote push for Hillary Clinton. On Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden is slated to speak at a North Carolina Democratic Party early-vote rally at a Charlotte recreation center. Rather, it's a site for the fabricated conspiracy-driven rantings of convicted felon Hal Turner, who was sentenced to prison for threatening to kill three federal judges.

Hillary Clinton, senior lawmakers and dozens of former prosecutors from both parties have all assailed Comey's decision.

Obama has emerged as a compelling force in the hard-fought campaign, delivering powerful arguments against the billionaire and in support of Clinton's bid to become the first female U.S. president.

Ms Obama could very well return to academia in 2017, as she served as Assistant Dean of Students at University of Chicago and Vice President for Community and External Affairs at the University of Chicago Medical Centre before becoming First Lady. And that site dropped several campaign events - not just ones involving President Obama - from their listing for unknown reasons.

The event, just a week away from Election Day on November 8, is one of several appearances Obama has made on the campaign trail for Clinton in the final weeks of the presidential race. According to a schedule released by the White House, the president plans to campaign Tuesday through Friday next week for Hillary Clinton.

"There's going to be noise and distractions over the course of the final days of this campaign".

Obama won the states in 2008 and 2012, except in the case of North Carolina, which he won the first time but lost in his re-election bid. The next day, he'll be in North Carolina for a similar event in Raleigh. And on Thursday, Obama will travel to Florida to campaign for Clinton in Miami and in Jacksonville. Clinton spoke to roughly 1,750 at her one public event.
