Obama’s inner circle begins to choose sides

Barack Obama, Deval Patrick,

Harriet Sinclair for Newsweek:

“Former Obama aides have their sights sets firmly on 2020, with a number of them giving early indications as to who they’ll back for president.

“Former Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick is among the potential candidates to enjoy support from two of the former president’s allies, Valerie Jarrett and Obama Foundation CEO David Simas, with sources telling The Hill the pair would back a Patrick bid.

“His camp’s loyalties could be split however if Joe Biden decides to run, with many of Obama’s trusted confidantes close to the former vice president, who is said to be considering his options for 2020.”
