Kind of odd isn’t it that Hillary Clinton plans on riding the wave of Barack Obama’s accomplishments or failings depending on where one sits on the matter all the way to the White House.

The crowd booed when Clinton invoked Obama’s name.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, the second coming of Barack Obama.
While insisting like Obama that she has been transparent (not in both cases), Clinton has yet to release transcripts of her Wall Street speeches.

Transparent: NOPE! Hogwash: YOUBETCHA!
I cannot get Bernie Sanders’ voice out of my head, “Again, Secretary Clinton did not answer the question.”
