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.
