Former President Bill Clinton has been busy writing playbooks for his wife, Hillary, to use in her likely 2016 presidential campaign including how to take maximum advantage of my death," according to a new book out Monday.
In Edward Klein's Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. The Obamas, the former president is quoted suggesting that his death and subsequent state funeral would help elect Hillary Clinton. He said it would be worth a couple of million votes.
In the epilogue of his book, provided to Secrets, Klein quotes Bill Clinton complaining that the Hillary Clinton for President campaign in 2008 started too late. He also said that when she runs, Hillary Clinton has got to hit hard at the Obama record.
Klein, a former New York Times and Newsweek editor, interviewed dozens of Clinton and Obama insiders for his book which details hostile feelings between the two political families.
In one conversation revealed to Klein, Clinton, who has suffered heart troubles, suggests that there is a benefit to his wife if he dies before the election.
Starting on page 276, Klein begins by quoting the former president:
Im worried how my health will affect your campaign, he said. I have to do all I can to prepare the campaign playbooks, but I also have to accept the fact that if I fall by the wayside, you have to continue without me and make a positive thing out of it.
A positive thing? Hillary said. What the hell are you talking about?

Don’t worry about that Bill. She will piss on your grave.
Doesn’t sound like too smart a thing for Ol’ Slick to tell Hillary ...
I wouldn’t put it past either of them. Him to put this all together and her to run it out just as he advised.
Evidently there is nothing so bad, in their world, that it cannot be exploited.
That works for me - if it turns out she kills him.
Bill Clinton is dead? Who knew? lol
State funeral? Where? North Korea?
If you guys thought the Paul Wellstone Memorial/Fundraiser/Pep-Rally/Free-For-All was something, just wait until either of these two old Commies pass on.
You ain’t seen nothin’ yet, LOL!
That quote in and of itself illustrates the difference between the two. Bill is the consummate politician, who can play four three-dimensional political chess games at the same time. Hillary on the other hand, has the political instincts of a pet rock.
Given all the snippets being leaked about this book, it sounds like it should be pretty much an overly lengthy National Enquirer piece...
I would think it would be a great fund-raising tool:
"Piss on Bill Clinton's grave! $100!
I could go broke contributing to that fund.
People dancing in the streets, throwing manure at the casket....oh yes, I can see it all.
I hope he goes slowly.
Under the outhouse at the Clintoon Libary! (sic on purpose)
This should not have surprised me, but it really did. If this is true, how did the writer find out such a juicy gem of information? Bill may not want to put that ‘bee in her bonnet’.
I find it astonishing that he thinks so little of this country that he would consider his death a chance for her to become CIC.
It’s all a game to them—no more,no less.
I heard he has named his unit the vuvuzuela. Ever since he saw all those adoring soccer fans blowing those obnoxious horns at the South Africa hosted world cup a few years ago he can not get it out of his head.
