BUZZING: Today in the Hive
From a TPM Prime member: "I do remember a year or two ago one of Biden's aides leaked a list of foreign policy disagreements between Biden and Clinton since Obama's election. The list was a pretty damning attack on her record. I think it put her on the unpopular side of troops in Iraq, Afghanistan, a cautious approach to the arab spring, she did support the Bin Laden raid over Biden, and I forget the other points."
