White House: Gibbs Claims Obama Has No Regrets Over Rhee
Politics Daily follows up on the story I told you a few weeks ago -- the White House's abandoment of Rhee (and Fenty) and the questions it raises about what Obama will and won't do for its education champions (Did the White House Abandon Michelle Rhee?).
The best part is this dismissive quote from Obama spokesman Robert Gibbs: "I don't think the president has any regrets about not getting involved in a mayoral race." Well, I'm not so sure about that. It wasn't just any old mayoral race and it's not like the President hasn't stayed out of local matters before (beer summit, anyone?). But at least now Bennet, Klein, and other reformers know they're on their own when they get in a jam.
