POLITICO’s ‘Open Mike’ Series with Ready for Hillary’s Mitch Stewart

In the latest installment of POLITICO’s “Open Mike” series, the “Playbook” editor sat down with Mitch Stewart, a senior adviser to Ready for Hillary.

Stewart, who also worked on the Obama for America campaign, admits that he’s never even met Clinton, and hopes that she’d like him. In the video, Mike Allen asks what would happen to Ready for Hillary should the former Secretary of State decide not to run, how the 2016 election will differ than 2012, and about the super PAC’s supporter database.

Bloomberg’s Jonathan Allen on the Unsteady Relationship of Obama and Clinton

Bloomberg’s Jonathan Allen this afternoon published a piece on the hot and cold relationship of President Obama and Hillary Clinton.

“From the time of their shotgun wedding after the 2008 campaign — Obama vowing to keep his primary adversary close and Clinton promising to serve him loyally as head of his State Department — they’ve kept the partnership of the two most powerful brands in Democratic politics from tearing asunder,” writes Allen.

But as the end of Obama’s second term and Clinton’s expected run for the White House fast approach, their relationship, Obama’s support, and Clinton’s public perception are more important now, that ever.

Jill Jackson Named Senior Producer of ‘Face the Nation’

Jill JacksonCBS News today announced that Jill Jackson, who’s been with the bureau since 2007, is set to join ”Face the Nation with Bob Schieffer“ as a senior producer.

Jackson served as a Capitol Hill producer in CBS’s Washington bureau before joining “CBS This Morning” in 2013. During the 2010 midterm elections, Jackson shifted to the role of senior political producer, and at the Republican and Democratic national conventions in 2012, she produced for Norah O’Donnell‘s coverage.

“Jill is a rising star in the bureau and we couldn’t be happier to have her,” said Schieffer. “There’s no better way to learn Washington than to spend your days chasing down the newsmakers on Capitol Hill and Jill’s years there will serve her well as she takes on her new responsibilities. She knows the players and she knows news. You can’t ask for more than that and we’re lucky to have her on the team.”
