Hillary Clinton takes jibe at Joe Biden for opposing Osama raid
Washington – Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took a jab at Vice President Joe Biden, saying he didn’t want the Osama bin Laden raid to go forth.
Clinton said at an Atlanta conference that she was strongly in support of the Navy SEAL mission, while Biden was much more cautious.
According to the Washington Times, audience members picked up on the political jab, saying it appeared as if she were staking out her White House claim now.
State Republican Tom Taylor, a Republican who was in the audience and reported the exchange to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, said that Clinton is running for president now, because when she was asked about the Osama bin Laden raid, Clinton without turning the knife too deeply put it to Biden, the report said.
Taylor said Clinton set herself forward as the strong leader type in contrast to Biden’s more indecisive leadership.
She also reportedly harped on Biden numerous mentions of opposition to the raid.
