Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap


The Clintons and the Obamas...
...it's more than a political rivalry, it's a Blood Feud


They are allies by circumstance, rivals in fact, and enemies by personal animosity. New York Times bestselling author Edward Klein pulls back the veil on the most unreported story in Washington—the jealousy and antipathy that divides the two most powerful Democratic families in the country.

With unparalleled reporting and access to the most sensitive sources close to the principals, Klein gives an insider's, behind the scenes view of the mutual loathing between the Democratic standard-bearers.

In Blood Feud, you'll learn:
  • Why Michelle Obama’s political ambitions could rival Hillary Clinton's

  • About the “deal”: why Bill Clinton supported Barack Obama for reelection—and why he feels betrayed

  • Benghazi: how Barack Obama set up Hillary Clinton to take the blame

  • How the one—and only—White House dinner between the Obamas and the Clintons was fraught with tension and contempt

  • The Oprah factor: how she was used by the Obamas—and stroked by the Clintons

  • How not just Bill and Hillary, but Barack and Michelle, lead largely separate lives

  • The power behind the president—it’s not Michelle, but her best friend who sets the administration’s policies and personnel

  • The secret Hillary Clinton is keeping that could make it impossible for her to be president

Jaw-dropping in its revelations, compulsively readable in the famous Klein style, Blood Feud will be the most talked about political book of the year.

It was a very interesting book and a quick read.
Jeff Dunn
I haven't read all of this book yet, but wanted to comment that it is a really good book if you like soap operas.
Melissa Wingfield
I think Edward Klein's book is truthful, exposing the Obama's' hatred toward the Clinton's and vice versa.

I read the Mr. Klein's book, The Amateur, and that book reads like a tome on everything that has occurred during the Obama Administration. I would add that if one read Saul Alinsky's book, Rules for Radicals, that together the most casual observer could virtually glance at the books, then at the headlines, and get a foreboding chill straight to the bone. This is another classic by Mr. Klein and should be in everyones library. And for what it is worth I am a combat veteran, and my political views have morphed quite dramatically since reading these books. I find myself neither Democrat nor Republican or Tea Party, but more interested in the truth rather than rhetoric and campaign slogans. As Thomas Jefferson referenced, "Every government degenerates when trusted to the rulers of the people alone. The people themselves are its only safe depositories. " And lastly, "I predict future happiness for Americans, if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.”

I hope this was helpful. God Bless the United States of Americal

The two lead families of the Democratic Party hate each other. Edward Klein documents why and how in this entertaining and fast moving book. It's a good political beach read.

It's mostly about three elections: that of 2008, where Barack Obama came from behind to knock off front-runner Hillary Clinton for the nomination, with charges and countercharges of race-card-playing in the South Carolina primary; 2012, where Bill Clinton made a whizbang nominating speech for someone he can't stand and Hillary drank the Kool-Aid in agreeing to lie about Benghazi - `it was a spontaneous riot caused by a video' - to seal Obama's reelection; and the 2016 election, where Obama promised Clinton he'd support Hillary in exchange for their carrying his water, then reneged on it.

There are tons of details and fly-on-the-wall accounts of conversations. The Clintons come off much better than the Obamas do. We know most of the Clintons' dirt already and, as a nation, don't seem to care too much, but meanwhile they seem to have a clue about how to run the country, while the Obamas don't. Barack Obama comes off as narcissistic, lazy, and shielded from reality by advisor Valerie Jarrett, effectively the shadow president since 2009.

I get the feeling the Clintons shrewdly used this book to get their version of events into play. Klein found leakers near the Obamas who are unhappy with them, but many Clinton sources appear to be lifelong friends seemingly given the green light to talk for this book - people who wouldn't jeopardize their relationship to do so. And for many of the quotations, there would be no question in the Clintons' minds who had given them - people party to conversations where only one or two others were present.

This book confirmed what many of us had already suspected. Based on body language, newspaper op-ed pieces (esp. by the liberal press), I had always had a hunch that the Clintons and the Obama camp had a serious animus between each other. This well-written and absorbing book really lays bare that animus and provides an illuminating insight into both the Clinton machine and the faltering Obama presidency. The seemingly docile and,obsequious Valerie Jarrett is finally exposed as the almost true President of the United States who literally pulls the strings on the Obama puppets as the Clintons exhult in Obama's missteps and contradictions. Edward Klein has produced a masterpiece of contemporary politics that will be surely read many years into the future.

This is a real eye opener, especially for those who don't pay attention to what is going on in Washington. This is the best reporting I have experienced since Watergate. At least there is at least one person in this country who is still a "reporter".

Format: Hardcover
Edward Klein writes a great story. His writing, his reporting, is impeccable. His sources seem to be very credible. Of course, we all remember conversations slightly different than they were and in each person who does the telling the story seems to grow like a tornado in Kansas. But the original intent seldom changes. And facts are checked.

This book is a page-turner. I seldom pay much attention to the stories of politicians because they're all so shallow and egotistical and such experienced psychological lairs. But this book is not written "by" a politician but by a skilled and, hopefully, objective reporter. One of the first things we're taught in journalism school is to be objective. Unfortunately, however, people don't seem to be learning that anymore. I think Klein still maintains that vital journalistic skill.

Everything in the book has already been leaked or reviewed here. I won't repeat all that. All I'll say is that it's an eye-opener. I'd heard some of the stories before and suspected many more. With politicians, you're not dealing with normal people. Power is the coin of the realm to them --- the only currency they know or care about.

I personally do not like the Clintons nor do I like the Obamas. Nor for that matter do I like many on the other side of the isle. I dislike politicians equally and without bias or regard to party or anything else. Frankly, I liked the Clintons and the Obamas even less after reading this delightful book.

The egos of the two Clintons and the two Obamas are unbelievable. They all four feel entitled. That, I think, is at the center of this book. The feeling of utter entitlement coupled with childish fears and insecurities that make them close to pathological people ill fit to lead.
