First lady Michelle Obama warned her husband not to challenge former Black Panther and four-term Rep. Bobby Rush in 2000, threatening divorce when Barack Obama got walloped in his first bid for national office, a new biography of the president claims.
“Michelle actually had divorce papers drawn up,” author Edward Klein wrote, quoting one of Mrs. Obama’s friends.
In the unauthorized “The Amateur,” Klein also said that Obama was talking divorce after the loss. “This was a calamitous turn of events, and during the dark days that followed his defeat, he turned to Michelle for comfort. But she was in no mood to offer him sympathy. After all, he had refused to listen to her warnings about taking on the formidable Bobby Rush. He had put his family in a precarious financial position. And he had dashed Michelle’s hopes of creating a stable and secure future. As a result, their marriage was on the rocks, and Obama confided to friends that he and Michelle were talking about divorce.”
Leaks from the book by Klein made headlines over the weekend, especially a claim that former President Clinton considered Obama an amateur. Obama supporters have criticized the book, which is based on 200 interviews.
