America learned yesterday that not only was President Obama going to travel to Charlotte, N.C., to campaign with his former campaign rival Hillary Clinton, but that he’d be giving her a lift on Air Force One.

Not only did Clinton have the opportunity to be photographed exiting the presidential airplane with the current president; Obama brought along his official lectern emblazoned with the presidential seal, so that Clinton could address the crowd with the words “President of the United States” appearing directly beneath her — so much for those who thought nothing was beneath Hillary Clinton.

It beats standing in front of a wall made of garbage, that’s for sure.

In the past, huh? Well, there are a lot of things that the honest American citizen is going to have to accept are now in the past.

We might have already used the word “shameless” today in a headline, so we’ll just leave this here.
