Politico's ebook Obama's Last Stand is out today. The third in a series, it looks at the state of the race for the White House, this time honing in on President Obama's reelection campaign.
From the book via Politico's own writeup:
Obama’s trash-talking competitiveness, a trait that has defined him since his days on the court as a basketball-obsessed teenager in Hawaii, was on display one night last February, when the president spotted a woman he knew was close to Sen. Marco Rubio in a Florida hotel lobby. “Is your boy going to go for [vice president]?” the president asked her. Maybe, she replied.
“Well,” he said, chuckling, according to a person who witnessed the encounter. “Tell your boy to watch it. He might get his ass kicked.”
The book is based on two months of reporting and interviews with two dozen current and former members of Obama’s team, according to Politico.
