Transcript for Obama, Hillary to Attend Party in Martha's Vineyard
Now to president Obama and Hillary Clinton meeting tonight on Martha's vineyard just days after Mrs. Clinton unleashed very strong criticism of her former boss. ABC's Jonathan Karl on the scene and, Jon, this meeting could be a bit awkward. Reporter: That's right, both Clintons and both Obamas will be at a big party tonight for one of their mutual friends and it comes just after Mrs. Clinton offered some rare criticism of the president's foreign policy telling the "Atlantic" magazine his fail our to support moderate rebels in Syria led to the rise of the terrorists that we are now bombing in Iraq. I spoke to one of the president's top advisers, Ben Rhodes about this, he said the president is taking no offense. She remains a close friend of the president's and I think the point is that their friendship extends well beyond any differences or anything that is spun up in the public sphere. Reporter: Jon, as you know -- Reporter: As for Mrs. -- I'm sorry. Reporter: I was going to say Mrs. Clinton said she called president Obama to kind of smooth things out say she didn't intend that as an attack and look at this statement from Mrs. Clinton's spokesperson saying "She looks forward to hugging it out when they see each other" at tonight's party so we'll see if there's any hugging it out in Martha's vineyard. We will be looking. I know you'll be there. Thanks, Jon, so much.
