Blood Feud by Edward Klein

We all know the worst kept secret is the animosity between the Obamas and the Clintons. It boils down to who is going to rule the Democrat Party.

Edward Klein uses soures "privy to conversations" and "in the room" to flesh out this political family conflict.

One of the things I like about reading Klein's books is that he isn't into the character smearing with all the horrible name-calling so often found in political books of this kind. It almost feels like a Woodward book in that he simply lays the information out there.

Now, of course, depending on which side of the political aisle you find yourself, you will see what you want to see in this book.

Some of the information was unbelievable - how could this be true? The President and his wife sleep in separate rooms? The President told Secretary Clinton to blame the Benghazi attack on a video? The President played with his blackberry while President Clinton was talking to him at an invited dinner?

I mean, how self-serving is this President?

I never knew the extent to which President Obama and his administration used people for their influence/money/network and then forgot all about it. (Oprah will never forgive the Obamas for how they treated her after the 2008 election)

Of course, the mastermind behind everything is Presidential Advisor Valerie Jarrett. She is the Karl Rove of this administration and her protective hedge is deeper than Rove's ever was.

After reading this book you will shake your head in disgust at the Obama administration. You might even feel led to do your own research to confirm everything exposed in this book.

For me, I know one thing: I want to read more books by Edward Klein.
