Overview

Host of The Reid Report on MSNBC, the Grio.com managing editor and Miami Herald columnist Joy-Ann Reid charts the complicated relationship between Barack Obama and Bill and Hillary Clinton, showing how the Democratic party s faithful and its power players have been caught in a whirl of shifting allegiances to each and how this ever-changing strategic balance is shaping the party and its hopes to retain the White House.

The epic battle between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party s nomination in 2008 profoundly split the Party faithful. The fight was brutal and ugly, sparking a media feeding frenzy.

When it was over, Hillary supporters backed Obama, who as president appointed Hillary to the highest position in his cabinet: Secretary of State, a role she embraced to wide acclaim. Four years later, former President Bill Clinton appeared on the campaign trail and at the Democratic convention, giving Obama the most powerful and effective endorsement of the re-election. Now, more than two years before the next national election, with speculation about a second Hillary Clinton presidential candidacy running rampant, the questions have already begun: Will Obama people be welcome in a Clinton campaign? What role will the sitting president play in the campaign and will his support even be welcome?

Veteran reporter Joy-Ann Reid investigates these questions and more, offering breaking news, fresh insight, and experienced insider analysis, mixed with fascinating behind-the-scenes drama, to illuminate one of the most intriguing political relationships in modern history and its importance for the future of America itself."
