ABC News White House correspondent asks the WH press secretary Josh Earnest about what Obama adviser Ben Rhodes called the "Foreign Policy Blob," a group of elder statesmen and Iraq War planners including Hillary Clinton, who still influence foreign policy in the Obama administration. "The article says according to Rhodes, 'the Blob' includes Hillary Clinton, Robert Gates and other Iraq War promoters from both parties who now whine incessantly about the collapse of American security in Europe and the Middle East." "Does the White House view Hillary Clinton as part of this 'foreign policy blob'? Of is that just he view of Ben Rhodes?" Earnest responds: "I have spent a lot of time with Ben Rhodes... I have not heard him use the term 'blob.' Not to say he was misquoted... I'm not even sure what that means. Obviously Sec. Clinton is someone I would put in the category of influencing the president's thinking, and this administration's policy."
