Audio Interview: Ed Klein on Blood Feud
Much to the chagrin of the Washington Post, Ed Klein’s Blood Feud is outselling Hillary Clinton's new memoirs. Naturally, Klein is elated. “It is a terrific thrill to knock Hillary off the top of the [best-seller] list, I have to tell you. She helped me a lot, because she put out a committee-written book that has absolutely nothing new in it.”
In contrast, Klein’s Blood Feud is loaded with juicy details, and dramatic scenes of five of the most powerful people on the planet scheming against each other.
Five? In addition to his portraits of the Clintons and the Obamas, Klein’s Blood Feud sheds new light on one of the most mysterious members of Barack and Michelle’s inner circle, Valerie Jarrett. As Klein describes Jarrett, she’s the distaff equivalent of Tom Hagen, the dangerous consigliere pulling the strings behind the scenes of The Godfather.
During our 18-minute long interview, Klein will discuss:
● What roles did Jarrett and Hillary play in the Benghazi debacle starting on September 11, 2012?
● What was the key promise that the Obamas made to Bill and Hillary, that the president would later renege on?
● Obama’s political skills versus his performance on the job he’s landed with them.
● How will Hillary perform on the campaign trail in 2015 and 2016 and, if she wins, as president?
● What are the health issues plaguing Bill and Hillary, and how serious a threat are they?
