So this would make Clinton the Czar of Csars?

Obama enlists Clinton to argue for his tax compromise. After introducing Clinton, Obama himself left the room. Maybe he had a pressing tee-time. No, it was a Christmas party:
But after Mr. Clinton began taking questions, the current president excused himself, saying that his wife, Michelle, expected Mr. Obama’s presence at one of the many holiday parties that presidents host during the month of December. [my italics]

I didn't really think much about it when I saw it. It kind of made sense, considering how unpersuasive Obama, the current president, has been on this issue, but this description of Obama's performance this week:
And finally, to add to the surreal quality of it all, Obama seems to have turned the presidency back over to Bill Clinton, at least temporarily. Drew, blogging at Ace, thinks that this is a sign that Obama is not up to the job, but I’m beginning to wonder. There’s much more going on here than meets the eye, and it’s worth remembering, as both Krauthammer and Don Quixote did, that Obama made his way up through the street theater of Leftism.
