President Barack Obama and those closest to him are “doing everything they can” to encourage Vice President Joe Biden to challenge Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination, former New York Times Magazine editor-in-chief Edward Klein tells Newsmax TV.
In a panel discussion Tuesday on “Newsmax Prime” with host J.D. Hayworth and Miranda Khan, the author of “Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas,” said the push is coming from the president, First Lady Michelle Obama and Obama’s senior advisor, Valerie Jarrett.
“[They] are doing everything they can at this point to encourage Joe Biden to throw in his hat,” he said.
Klein said he also believes Clinton is in “a kind of race against time.”
