Sources close to Obama and Biden say the two men have spoken "quite frequently," as one put it, in recent days as Biden pivots to the general election. Obama has also spoken to Sanders in recent days, according to two sources with knowledge of the conversations.


The former president has stayed out of the Democratic primary, but sources say he is anxious to endorse his former vice president, Joe Biden, and become an active player in the general election campaign against President Trump.

7. One of the Great Movie scenes ever....

That and "I'll be your Huckleberry" and the twirling of his liquor cup. Kilmer should have won the Academy Award for his acting (if he didn't) in that movie.

6. Yeah. "Salivating". As if that's something Democrats do about politicos.

We're excited about the possibility of President Obama's involvement in Joe Biden's campaign.

But we're not a bunch of rapey, drunken frat-boy Republicans "salivating" over......whatever it is rapey, drunken frat-boy Republicans salivate over.

Americans want decency and normality. President Obama is the very definition of decency!
