Blood Feud-NYT BannerThey 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 divide 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 standardbearers. Blood Feud reveals:

Why Michelle Obama’s political ambitions could rival Hillary Clinton’s

  • The “deal”: why Bill Clinton supported Barack Obama for reelection—and why he feels betrayed
  • The Benghazi backstory: 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.

The Trouble With Andrew

The Trouble with Andrew

In the royal-wedding afterglow, Buckingham Palace still has a major P.R. problem: how to handle Prince Andrew, Britain’s trade ambassador and fourth in line to the throne. The prince’s dissolute lifestyle, links to unsavory foreign potentates, and friendship with the American registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein are undercutting the Queen’s efforts to rehabilitate the monarchy. And while many blame Andrew’s problems on his perennially broke ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson, Edward Klein discovers some insiders pointing to another woman—his mother herself.

The Jewish Problem With Obama

In the nearly eighty years since President Franklin Roosevelt launched the New Deal with a pledge to “help the forgotten man,” relations between American Jews and the Democratic Party have been as close as lips and teeth. Even as Jews prospered and assimilated into the mainstream of American life, most of them remained loyal to FDR’s liberal vision and refrained from following the pattern of other affluent groups by shifting to the Republican Party. Over the course of the past twenty elections, a stunning 75 percent of the Jewish vote has on average gone to the Democratic presidential candidate. As the old saying goes: “Jews earn like Episcopalians and vote like Puerto Ricans.”

The Jewish Problem With Obama Part 2

The Jewish problem with Obama can be traced back to his first full day on the job. On January 21, 2009, he summoned his national security team to the Oval Office and laid out a tough new policy toward Israel. According to our sources, Obama said that in order to make good on his campaign promise to extricate 200,000 American troops from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the U.S. had to create a grand coalition of “moderate” Muslim states and Israel to isolate Iran, which has made no secret of its ambition to become the nuclear hegemon in the Middle East.

The Jewish Problem With Obama Part 4

At a certain point, many Jews began to wonder if there was something more behind the Obama administration’s confrontational approach toward Israel than a simple difference of policy. As a result, they began to take a second look at Obama’s past for clues to his present behavior. In particular, they were curious how Chicago’s bare-knuckle politics had shaped Obama’s outlook.
