Bill Clinton got steamed in Oakland

I shoulda posted this earlier, but better late than never when it comes to great video: KGO-TV reporter Mark Matthews went toe-to-toe with Bill Clinton in Oakland the other day, asking about the Nevada Democratic Party’s plan to hold caucus meetings at nine Las Vegas Strip hotels. Hillary Clinton supporters including the state teachers union and some party activists sued, claiming this gives the Culinary Workers Union, which has endorsed Barack Obama for the president and represents the hotel workers, undue influence on the vote; a federal judge yesterday refused to intervene.

And Bill got hot under the collar.
