Oct. 14 (Bloomberg) -- When does “no” not really mean no?
When politicians say it. Reporters understand that if the
circumstances are right, the answer can always change.
On Thursday, NBC News’s Savannah Guthrie asked Secretary of
State Hillary Clinton about the rumor du jour, that President
Barack Obama might ask Clinton to swap jobs with Vice President
Joe Biden. Clinton said, “I do not think it’s even in the realm
of possibility and in large measure because I think Vice
President Biden has done an amazingly good job.”
