Please meet President Barack Clinton

Verfasst von

Das hat es wohl noch nicht gegeben: die Journalisten des White House Press Corps staunten nicht schlecht, als am Freitag nicht wie gewöhnlich der Pressesprecher zum Pressebriefing erschien, sondern Präsident Obama selbst, im Schlepptau Amtsvorvorgänger Bill Clinton. Vollends irritiert waren sie, als Obama sich während eines Statements von Ex-Präsident Clinton entschuldigte, weil er seiner Frau versprochen habe, gemeinsam eine Weihnachtsfeier zu besuchen. Sprach’s und verabschiedete sich und ließ Clinton alleine am Rednerpult zurück. Der schien Gefallen an der Sache gefunden zu haben, dass er zurück im Scheinwerferlicht war, und wenn es auch nur für wenige Minuten war.
Hintergrund des Besuchs Clintons im Weißen Haus war dessen Unterstützung für den Deal bezüglich der Fortsetzung der Steuererleichterungen aus der Ära Bush, den das Weiße Haus mit den Republikanern im Kongress ausgehandelt und in der letzten Woche öffentlich gemacht hatte. Viele Demokraten sind überzeugt, dass der Deal zu weit geht und die Demokraten zentrale eigene Prinzipien verletzen würden, sollten sie diesem Kompromiss zustimmen. Clinton hat sich am Freitag eindeutig positioniert und sich hinter den Deal gestellt.
Das Video der gesamten Pressekonferenz gibt es hier. Die entscheidende Szene können Sie zum Beispiel hier sehen.
