Has President Obama turned his back on likely 2016 Democratic presidential contender Hillary Clinton in favor of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass.?
In an opinion piece published Sunday in the New York Post, Edward Klein, author of “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas,” said sources tell him Obama “has quietly promised [Warren] complete support if she runs for president.”
Klein called the move “a stinging rebuke” to Obama’s nemesis.
According to “Blood Feud,” first lady Michelle Obama secretly calls Clinton “Hildebeest,” which, if true, suggests the move may not be all that surprising.
In the alleged plot, senior advisor Valerie Jarrett stars as Lady Macbeth, having been authorized by Obama “to conduct a full-court press to convince Warren to throw her hat into the ring” — allegedly, Jarrett and Warren have already had a series of secret meetings in the past several weeks.
Calling Warren “the darling of progressives,” Klein said the former Harvard law professor would “energize the left wing of the Democrat Party.”
Klein further states that Obama is worried that Hillary will undo many of his policies if she succeeds him, whereas Warren would “carry on the Obama legacy.”
“The Obamas believe that Warren sees things from the same ideological point of view as they do,” an Obama administration source said. “She is a committed progressive who, like Obama, wants to transform America into a European-style democratic-socialist state.”
But don’t count out Bill Clinton, the consummate politician, who is sure to have a hand in the 2016 presidential election should his wife run. If there’s to be any blood letting, you can be sure the Clintons will give as good as they get.
