Abby Philip: Dems ‘Have a Lot of Real Regrets’ About Clinton Being the ‘Chosen One’
PHILLIP: "I think of all the people, Obama probably understands the impact of having kind of coronated Hillary Clinton coming into this race. I think Democrats have a lot of real regrets about that sentiment that she was the chosen one. Whether it was real or not, even her people believed that hurt her going into this race. President Obama, even though publicly he didn’t say much about Hillary Clinton, privately he was encouraging his backers to get behind Hillary. He was encouraging Joe Biden not to necessarily get into the race. So he played a role in what we saw this cycle."
