Anyone who dozed off after the first several hours of Thursday night’s #DemDebate in New York might have thought that Hillary Clinton was leaning heavily on President Obama to prove herself qualified for the office he now holds.

Taking the “I just work here” approach, Clinton explained that as a member of the Obama administration, the best she could do was provide recommendations to the president.
