Paul Scicchitano of Newsmax noticed an endorsement for Ed Klein’s¬†The Amateur: Barack Obama in the White House¬†flashing across the Twitter feed of media mogul Rupert Murdoch:
“Long, long flight to LA read The Amateur (Bill Clinton‚??s word) by Ed Klein. ¬†Every voter should read.”
Murdoch’s parenthetical note refers to the title of Klein’s book, which is taken from former president Bill Clinton’s reputed dismissal of Obama’s political skills. ¬†The strained relationship between Clinton and Obama is a major topic of the book.
It looks as if many American voters agree with Murdoch, because¬†The Amateur¬†(published by HUMAN EVENTS’ sister company, Regnery Publishing) remains on the¬†New York Times¬†bestseller list, where it has been for the past ten weeks, reaching Number One six times.
