Neera Tanden has been elected president-elect, Joe Biden, director of the Office of Administration and Budget, but an email leaked from 2015 indicates that Tanden may not have always believed Biden was the best Democratic presidential candidate for the job.
Tanden is the CEO of the Center for Liberal American Progress and former political director of Hillary Clinton’s first presidential campaign. In an email sent on October 20, 2015 to John Podesta, former Chief of Staff to Bill Clinton, Tanden made it clear that he trusted Hillary Clinton more than Biden.
“A good feature of the Biden run is that Hillary would look much better,” Tanden said. – What a mess today. Thank you for today and last night. “
Tanden probably referred to an event in Washington in honor of former Vice President Walter Mondale, where Biden criticized Clinton.

At the October 20, 2015 event, Biden considered his own Obama administration leadership to be more critical of his success than Clinton’s former Secretary of State and rebuked him for being “naive” for calling Republicans his main enemy.
“It is possible to eliminate this notion that the enemy is the other party,” Biden told the Washington audience at the Mondale gala. “End this notion that it is naive to think we can talk well about the other side and cooperation. What is naive is to think that this country can be governed remotely unless we know it. This is what is naive. “
The week before the event, Clinton was asked to name which enemy he had reached during his career, which he was most proud of, and responded with a list. – Well, in addition to the NRA, health insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, Iranians; probably Republicans, he said.

Biden then considered running against Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination. In his speech at the gala, he called him “great” at the nation’s top diplomatic post, but he couldn’t bear the same weight with foreign leaders as he did.
One day after Tanden sent his email, Biden announced he would not run against Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.
