Where did the love go?

Bad blood in the party's ranks?

Former President Bill Clinton stumping for Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio (D)...

According to the Washington Post, "In a year when some Democrats are keeping President Obama at arm's length, Rhode Island gubernatorial candidate Frank Caprio went a provocative step further Monday."

When Caprio learned - not from Obama but, instead, from a reporter that the endorsement/seal of approval would not be coming from the president, the Democratic candidate replied (audio link): "He can take his endorsement and really shove it, as far as I'm concerned."

The Yeshiva World News also noted that, "Caprio, who is scheduled to appear with Obama at two events Monday, criticized the president for failing to visit Rhode Rhode Island after historic flooding devastated much of the state back in March. 'We had one of the worst floods in the history of the United States a few months back and President Obama didn’t even do a flyover of Rhode Island,' Caprio said during the radio interview. 'He ignored us and now he’s coming into Rhode Island and treating us like an ATM machine.'”
