Bill Clinton is scheduled to speak Friday at Democratic Party-sponsored event named after prominent slaveholder Thomas Jefferson and genocide advocate Andrew Jackson. The controversial Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner will take place in Charleston West Virginia, a state where President Obama almost lost the 2012 nomination to Keith Judd, a convicted felon and 2012 Free Beacon Man of the Year.
Hillary Clinton really doesn’t want Joe Biden to run, mostly because he’s more authentic, likable, funny, popular, experienced, engaging, off-the-cuff, and human than she is.
