    and in the same article linked to in the diary, it's hinted that Obama prefers Garcetti.

    Clinton’s decision to endorse in the mayoral contest turns attention to the current occupant of the White House. As a sitting president, it’s more difficult for Obama to weigh in on the race, but he has a deep history with Greuel’s rival, Eric Garcetti.

    The councilman was an early supporter of Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, and served as his California co-chair. He has maintained close ties to the president, and was among a small group of supporters invited to the White House for a champagne toast the night of Obama’s second-term inauguration

    •  It's pretty clear he does but prob won't endorse (1+ / 0-)

      I don't think Obama's ever endorsed one Dem over another except to endorse incumbents against primary challenges. He may do photo ops or invite his perfected candidates to meet him at the airport, but he almost certainly won't endorse.

      23, male, CA-18 (home and voting there), LA-01 (college).
