But in perhaps the cruelest turn of fate for the presumed presidential hopeful, her new memoir lost its No. 1 spot on the New York Times bestseller list after just two weeks, falling to No. 2 on the July 13th list behind — of all titles — Edward Klein’s “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas.”
In Klein’s book, the author, who has published previous titles critical of both Ms. Clinton andPresident Obama, writes of the heated political battle between the Obamas and Clintons that has simmered since their 2008 Democratic presidential nomination fight.
Klein paints an unflattering image of both the Clintons and Obamas as conniving, dishonest, cynical political families/machines, who seek nothing less than each other’s destruction in their respective quests to erect political dynasties through which they can control the Democratic Party for years to come.
Many of Klein’s revelations in the book on topics like Benghazi and Bill Clinton’s strategy to help Hillary Clinton win the White House are centered on re-created dialogue that could only have been gleaned from sources incredibly close to the Clintons and Obamas, which – along with questions from both the left and right on Klein’s previous works – has led to skepticism on his book.
