A "Threat"? Really?

I usually enjoy your commentary Carol, but you're off the mark here. Did, perhaps, you receive an email from the WH also? Because the above sure seems like a threat to me. Thinkly veiled, maybe, but a threat nonetheless.

Last night, after Bob Woodward's account of a "very senior person" at The White House who "threatened" him, I guessed that it was Valerie Jarrett, given her history of excoriating and bullying the President's critics.

Turns out I was wrong -- the person was Gene Sperling, who has, it seems, given Politico his email to Bob Woodward, upon which Woodward based his charge of being threatened.  Although I appreciate Woodward's all-too-rare willingness to state truths the Obama White House finds unpleasant, I've got to say that -- given the context -- it's hard to characterize what Sperling said to...
