Obama Book Author Calls Michelle ‘The Politician’
The author of the new book The Obamas, New York Times Washington correspondent Jodi Kantor, said in a recent interview that First Lady Michelle Obama was the real politician.
“Michelle Obama is the real politician in the family in the sense she is more effusive, better at connecting instantly with people,” Kantor said. “A good source of mine once said to me, ‘Here’s what you have to remember: She is Bill Clinton, and he is Hillary.’”
Kantor’s book, which is to be published Jan. 10, is described as a “penetrating, gossipy page-turner of a biography” about the Obamas’ time in the White House.
In an interview with Chicago Magazine Kantor described the occupants of the White House as Washington introverts who did not have a clear idea of what the Presidency would be like when Obama was elected.
The author conducted interviews with White House staffers, the President and the First Lady in the writing of the biography.
