ABC News’ Tahman Bradley (@tahmanbradley) Reports:
Despite soggy grass, President Obama hit the golf course today with former President Bill Clinton.
It’s the first time that the two have played golf together since Obama became president. Obama chose Joint Base Andrews in Maryland — his usual golf spot — for the outing with the former president. The area in and around the nation’s capital experienced heavy rain Friday, but that didn’t stop the president from doing his usual weekend routine.
The outing with the former president could stoke speculation about whether Obama wants Clinton’s help pushing his $447 billion jobs plan. Last December, when Obama wanted to push for a tax cut compromise, he brought former Clinton with him into the press briefing room at the White House. After brief remarks, Obama left for a holiday party, and Clinton, in a surprise move, took over the briefing.
Will Clinton once again be used as Obama’s closer?
Obama addressed former Clinton’s annual global initiative Wednesday in New York.
