Earlier this year political writer Edward Klein published a book entitled, "Blood Feud", subtitled, "The Clintons vs. the Obamas", which now looks like it was quite prescient in its predictions of the Obamas supporting someone other than Hillary Clinton for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination. A reading of Klein's book is very revealing in its insights into the long standing and continuing animosity between the Obamas and the Clintons that runs deep and wide ranging, despite all the 'kiss ups' in public.
Obama, admittedly the quintessential manipulating masterful politician and especially outstanding campaigner/fundraiser, has been quietly and subtly pushing for someone of his own radical political ilk to confront Hillary and upset her apple cart along the way to the 2016 Democratic National Convention. It has now surfaced that 300 former Obama campaign staffers have rallied round the idea of Elizabeth 'Fauxcahontas' Warren, recently minted United States Senator in 2012, as the Democratic presidential nominee.
This group of 300 former Obama staffers have organized a group called "Ready for Warren" with an open letter to Elizabeth Warren. The contents of the letter included these observations from the group.
We believed in an unlikely candidate who no one thought had a chance.
We worked for him — and against all odds, we won in Iowa.
We organized like no campaign had organized before — and won the Democratic primary.
We built a movement — and the country elected the first-ever African American president.
We know that the improbable is far from impossible.
Now, former staffers from President Obama’s campaigns, along with former staffers from OFA, are joining with the thousands of Americans who are calling on Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016.
Rising income inequality is the challenge of our times, and we want someone who will stand up for working families and take on the Wall Street banks and special interests that took down our economy.
We urge Elizabeth Warren to run for president in 2016.
Expect to see Elizabeth Warren, despite protestations to the contrary, to run against Hillary. The money will be there at her disposal from the multitudinous sources cultivated by the master campaigner and fundraiser, Barack Obama. All Obama has to do is call in all the chits he has planted among the rich and powerful liberals in high places in business and banking. Obama, the socialist who has, for tactical and strategic purposes, morphed into a corporatist for pragmatic political purposes, has the power and forces necessary to anoint Elizabeth Warren as his successor to his mantle of the radical liberal as president
Forget about Warren supposedly challenging Obama over the CRomnibus bill and it diminishing the Dodd-Frank legislation regulating financial institutions. This pales in comparison to the long standing animosity between the Obamas and the Clintons. On the plus side, it gives Warren the image of being independent of Obama, all the while utilizing his political influence and campaign resources to challenge Hillary. Dizzy Lizzie may be saying she won't run, but that's only good until the moment she announces that she will run. Expect it to happen since there simply is no other Democrat that could possibly be viewed with winning potential. It's either going to be Hillary or Lizzy and I'm putting my betting money on Lizzy when I look toward who will be supporting her and all the resources Obama brings to the fight for the future of the Democrat Party.
The real problem that both Hillary and Lizzy have to overcome is that America does not appear to share their thought of continuing the failed radical liberal policies of a warmed over mutation of Barack Obama. Hillary has a more formidable challenge to separate herself from Obama. Warren is not burdened with all that Obama administration baggage that Hillary has to drag to the campaign trail.
