During today’s press conference, Josh Earnest was asked about Hillary Clinton entering the 2016 race:

Obama’s “other friends” might of course include Joe Biden.

Earnest was asked what a candidate would need to earn Obama’s endorsement:

And then maybe Obama will tell them “if you like your endorsement you can keep your endorsement.”

Does that make Hillary the front runner?

Can’t rule out Joe “this is a big effin deal” Biden, either!
