Among them, President Obama's advisers secretly considered replacing Vice President Joe Biden ont he ticket with then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton to capitalize on her poll numbers.
That's according to "Double Down", a soon to be released book by journalists Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.
And that isn't the only Clinton-Obama drama recounted in the book.
The book also details the long-strained relationship between Obama and former president Bill Clinton.
The New York Times obtained a copy of the book and summarizes it:
"When the two of them golfed together in September 2011, an effort aides hoped would bring them closer, they did not even finish 18 holes. Mr. Obama succinctly expressed his view of Mr. Clinton to an aide after coming off the course at Andrews Air Force Base. “Obama grimaced and replied, ‘I like him ... in doses,’ ” the authors write."
OutFront: Paul Begala was an adviser to the pro-Obama Super PAC during the 2012 campaign and was also a Counselor to President Clinton when he was in the white house; and Alice Stewart was a surrogate for the Romney campaign in 2012 and she was interviewed for this book.
