Barack Obama’s and Hillary Clinton’s complicated relationship has framed the nation’s greatest policy debates for the past eight years. They presented a united front publicly when ordering the Bin Laden raid and pushing for healthcare reform. But beyond the cameras, old resentments and conflicting visions of the role and purpose of US power strained relations, according to White House correspondent Mark Landler. Why did their worldviews diverge, and what legacy is Obama leaving for a possible Clinton presidency?

Mark Landler’s latest book, Alter Egos: Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and the Twilight Struggle Over American Power, will be available for purchase and signing from The Book Cellar following the program.
