Clinton: Obama has ‘absolutely’ passed the 3 A.M. test
Hillary Clinton told ABC’s George Stephanopoulos that President Barack Obama has proved that he can handle a 3 A.M. crisis.
STEPHANOPOULOS: Final question. The Economist magazine said this week that the question you raised in that famous “3 a.m.” ad is right back in the center of American politics. Has the president answered it for you?
CLINTON: Absolutely. And, you know, the president in his public actions and demeanor, and certainly in private with me and with the national security team, has been strong, thoughtful, decisive, I think he is doing a terrific job. And it’s an honor to serve with him.
