In his new book, The Audacity to Win: The Inside Story and Lessons of Barack Obama’s Historic Victory, David Plouffe, the chief campaign manager for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, confirms the decision to pass on Hillary Clinton for vice president. Obama couldn’t figure out how to make a former President named Bill part of his new White House family, ABC News reports.
Said Obama: “I think Bill may be too big a complication. If I picked her, my concern is that there would be more than two of us in the relationship.” Ouch.
TIME also runs a brief excerpt from Plouffe’s new book.
So, to all the angry Hillbots still seething at President Obama for giving the number two job to Joe Biden, please direct your rage at Bill Clinton.
