Good old Willie knows where most of the Demo bodies are buried in the Golden State, because had a hand in burying most of them. It’s one thing to be a survivor or a pragmatist, but he is and has always been and insider and a back-room dealer of the worst stripe. With friends like this in California, Obama does not need any enemies. Too bad this seems to paint him like some sort of respected elder statesman.
