Why did Obama let Clinton jerk him around over Samantha Power?

Prof. Althouse criticizes Obama for his deficiencies in his handling of the Samantha Power incident. She calls Obama cowardly.

Professor Althouse also says it is "revolting and ridiculous [for] Clinton campaign hacks [to] pretend it's a giant outrage that the brilliant Samantha Power applied the word 'monster' to Hillary Clinton." Should this be considered "negative" toward Clinton? I am calling it neutral because (a) it is about the hacks and no about the candidate and (b) it is largely about the process of getting elected. Similarly, her comment about Clinton doing whatever it takes to win.
