Attendees will experience first hand accounts of the tensions that exist between president Obama and the Clinton’s, how he crashed the December 2009 Copenhagen Conference on Climate Change, and how the Obama team pleaded with him not to pursue a health care agenda.
Topics covering the influence of his wife, Michelle, and the confrontation between Obama and General Patreus over Afghanistan will also be covered.
Tickets for the event can be purchased for $32 and includes a signed copy of the book.
