Did Barack Obama Completely Snub Hillary Clinton? If so- Stupid Move

If The Politico report is accurate then Barack Obama's vetting team completely bypassed Hillary Clint and did not vet her all, showing he never even considered her.

I cannot imagine that any Hillary Clinton supporter could accept such a deliberate snub and I cannot believe Barack Obama would be foolish enough to let it become public that he never even considered her worthy of considering!

From The Politico:

“She was never vetted,” a Democratic official reported. “She was not asked for a single piece of paper. She and Senator Obama have never had a single conversation about it. How would he know if she’d take it?”

The official also said Clinton never met with Obama’s vetting team of Eric Holder and Caroline Kennedy.

And the official said she was never asked for medical records or for any financial 2008 information about her or former President Bill Clinton. The last information the couple has disclosed about taxes and financial holdings was for 2007.

The Clintons also were not asked about donors to the William J. Clinton Presidential Library.

“This would be the biggest leap of faith ever,” the official said. “She’s waiting for the text message like everyone else.”

If this is true, then it would be the biggest "Screw You" to Clinton, her supporters, her fans and the 18 million people that voted for her whether the DNC deigned to count those votes or not.

If this is true, then it is no surprise that Clinton isn't giving it her all for Obama during her appearances.

Hot Air agrees and states, "No way would Barry O compound the risk of alienating Hillary nuts by not giving her even a cursory vetting."

I cannot believe that even Obama would be that stupid.

If he picks Hillary as his running mate, then the "Democratic official" was just offering up a red herring to throw people off track.... if he doesn't chose Hillary then the official might have been telling the truth and I cannot even imagine the anger of diehard Clinton supporters at that type of public disrespect.

Additional note: If Obama truly did snub Clinton, McCain can assure himself the November election easily:

Just least they appear to actually have a genuine liking for each other.
