Politics ~ fascinating reading

ELECTION BOOKS

“Double Down” , just out from journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann,, reveals Obama aides secretly considered replacing Joe Biden with Hillary Clinton in the 2012 election

The book examines the debate and how senior aides ultimately concluded the move would not offer enough  of a boost to justify the change.

And what of Obama and Bill Clinton? Though Obama recognized he needed Bill’s support, he could barely endure him. When the two golfed together in fall 2011, they couldn’t  finish 18 holes. What a story. The book also looks forward to 2016….even examining potential implications for Governor Chris Christie.

Politics makes for fascinating reading. Get more on my show The Book Report.
