Former foreign editor of Newsweek, former editor in chief of the New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair contributor, hardly the bona fides of a conservative flame thrower, Edward Klein has made a cottage industry out of chronicling the comings and goings of Bill and Hillary Clinton and Barack and Michelle Obama.
Klein’s background gives him unique access and perspective that he brings to bear on the extremely troubling relationship between these two sets political titans in Blood Feud – The Clintons vs. The Obamas. He recounts their tenuous history and what eventually boils down to an ultimate battle royal for the control of the Democrat party.
The final chapter of this story is far from being written; the Clinton’s certainly have a history of taking no prisoners and Obama is well schooled in “the Chicago Way” so the final victor is anything but certain.
While the Clintons and the Obamas have very little in common and clearly don’t get along; Klein without actually trying to do so points out exactly how little both of these two term Presidents have actually achieved! It’s almost as if the “legend” ridiculously out paces the reality.
Klein doesn’t break to much new ground, but confirms suspicions has he paints a portrait of the Obamas and the Clintons at the crossroads where outsized ambitions and ego meets the utter lack of ability to accomplish anything beyond gaining elective office.
The Clintons dearly crave the power and position of the Presidency and the cache that that brings. Only Bill Clinton could build himself a bachelor pad at his Presidential library; a redneck doublewide penthouse where he dreams of scoring Hollywood actresses and ends up settling for Little Rock cocktail waitresses. Like I said, outsized ambition meets the lack of ability to get it done.
The Obamas seem to like the thought of the Presidency, but didn’t realize that there was actual work involved, so they treat the job like that of a community organizer with a Platinum card expense account.
This is the tale of two bitter rivals who despite all public statements to the contrary, truly HATE each other; and that gives me hope that rather than doing what it takes to get the “Hildebeast”, a named allegedly coined for Hillary by Michelle Obama and Obama insider Valerie Jarrett, elected in 2016, that this battle for control will lead to a meltdown that will once and for all rid us of both of these liberal losers and their awful policies.
