Bill Clinton 'could sabotage' Hillary's run for President
Bill Clinton doesn't want his wife to win the U.S. presidency, according to sources cited in an explosive new book about the $100 million conglomerate that the Clintons have become since they left the White House.
The former president is 'deeply conflicted' about the idea, writes Daniel Halper in 'Clinton Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine,' a well-sourced and easy-reading book released Tuesday.
A former senior adviser to President Clinton told Halper that if Mrs. Clinton, the presumptive Democratic favorite, should become president, 'Clinton's f***ed.' History would remember Hillary as the trailblazing first female president, the insider says, but 'he's gonna be the guy that got a b*** j** and was impeached.'
Friends of Bill say in the book that the former president with the wandering eye 'dreaded' the idea of going back to the White House in 2017 because he would be 'trapped' there, leashed, without room for his libido to run or any meaningful say in government policy.
He would also find his wings clipped – literally losing his ability to jet-set and entertain celebrities nonstop in exotic locales between $750,000 speaking engagements.
'Why would he want to be the first spouse?' a Clinton confidant told Halper. 'What's he going to do? Live back in the White House and do the Christmas cards?'
