The deeply reported story of two supremely ambitious figures, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton—archrivals who became partners for a time, trailblazers who share a common sense of their historic destiny but hold very different beliefs about how to project American power In Alter Egos, veteran New York Times White House correspondent Mark Landler takes us inside the fraught and fascinating relationship between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton—a relationship that has framed the nation’s great debates over war and peace for the past eight years. In the annals of American statecraft, theirs was a most unlikely alliance. Clinton, daughter of an anticommunist father, was raised in the Republican suburbs of Chicago in the aftermath of World War II, nourishing an unshakable belief in the United States as a force for good in distant lands. Obama, an itinerant child of the 1970s, was raised by a single mother in Indonesia and Hawaii, suspended between worlds and a witness to the less savory side of Uncle Sam’s influence abroad. Clinton and Obama would later come to embody competing visions of America’s role in the world: his, restrained, inward-looking, painfully aware of limits; hers, hard-edged, pragmatic, unabashedly old-fashioned. Spanning the arc of Obama’s two terms, Alter Egos goes beyond the speeches and press conferences to the Oval Office huddles and South Lawn strolls, where Obama and Clinton pressed their views. It follows their evolution from bitter rivals to wary partners, and then to something resembling rivals again, as Clinton defined herself anew and distanced herself from her old boss. In the process, it counters the narrative that, during her years as secretary of state, there was no daylight between them, that the wounds of the 2008 campaign had been entirely healed. The president and his chief diplomat parted company over some of the biggest issues of the day: how quickly to wind down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan; whether to arm the rebels in Syria; how to respond to the upheaval in Egypt; and whether to trust the Russians. In Landler’s gripping account, we venture inside the Situation Room during the raid on Osama bin Laden’s compound, watch Obama and Clinton work in tandem to salvage a conference on climate change in Copenhagen, and uncover the secret history of their nuclear diplomacy with Iran—a story with a host of fresh disclosures. With the grand sweep of history and the pointillist detail of an account based on insider access—the book draws on exclusive interviews with more than one hundred senior administration officials, foreign diplomats, and friends of Obama and Clinton—Mark Landler offers the definitive account of a complex, profoundly important relationship. As Barack Obama prepares to relinquish the presidency, and Hillary Clinton makes perhaps her last bid for it, how both regard American power is a central question of our time. Advance praise for Alter Egos “A superb journalist has brought us a vivid, page-turning, and revelatory account of the relationship between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, as well as of their statecraft. Alter Egos will make a signal contribution to the national debate over who should be the next American president.”—Michael Beschloss, bestselling author of Presidential Courage “Mark Landler, one of the best reporters working in Washington today, delivers an inside account of Hillary Clinton’s relationship with Barack Obama that brims with insight and high-level intrigue. It’s both fun to read and eye-opening.”—Jane Mayer, bestselling author of Dark Money: The Hidden History of the Billionaires Behind the Rise of the Radical Right From the Hardcover edition.

As Hillaryâe(tm)s presidential campaign gears up, we are on the point of a titanic shift in Americanâe(tm)s role in the world. Obama has had a sceptical approach to foreign policy, with the belief that more disasters are caused by doing too much than doing too little, whether in Vietnam or Iraq. But is that really good enough in the storm-tossed world of modern foreign relations? His critics have derided it as weak and reactive, and most importantly a retreat from Americanâe(tm)s historic role as the worldâe(tm)s peacekeeper. Among the harshest critics was Hillary Clinton, who went from arch-rival, to Obamaâe(tm)s loyal lieutenant and is now poised to succeed him. As Secretary of State, Hillary has been intimately involved in every major foreign-policy debate and will take a more muscular, interventionist view of Americaâe(tm)s responsibilities in foreign affairs. Weaving together these two approaches with portraits of the two most riveting figures in the worldâe(tm)s most powerful country, Mark Landler, White House correspondent for the New York Times for over six years, describes how this sea-change in American foreign power will define the next decade. This book, informed by many different one-to-one conversations and interviews with both Obama and Hillary, Air Force One gossip, and off-the-cuff policy pronouncements, paints this debate in engaging and personal terms. As such itâe(tm)s essential reading for anyone seeking to understand either Obamaâe(tm)s legacy or Hillaryâe(tm)s promise, and outlines the core rivalry between two trailblazers who shared a common sense of their historical destiny, but have vitally different instincts about how to project American power in the world.
