First lady Michelle Obama refused to invite Bill and Hillary Clinton to dinner at the White House and hoped Vice President Joe Biden would run for the Democratic Party nomination this election year, according to a new book by former White House correspondent Kate Anderson Brower.

“The 2008 presidential campaign left deep and lasting scars on both the Clinton and Obama camps, and they are still shockingly fresh,” wrote Brower in her new book, “First Women, the Grace and Power of America’s Modern First Ladies.”

Brower said the relationship between the Hillary and Michelle is “fraught with hurt feelings and resentment.”

Michelle, according to a report by London’s Daily Mail, is still bitter about Hillary mocking her husband’s promises of “hope and change” at an Ohio campaign rally.

Hillary had said, “The sky will open, the light will come down, celestial choirs will be singing, and everyone will know that we should do the right thing, and the world would be perfect.”

Brower also said Hillary has been resentful that the late Sen. Ted Kennedy – who served as Hillary’s mentor in the Senate – wouldn’t support her 2008 run for the White House.

The author said an insider in Democrat front-runner’s inner circle told her Hillary is now running for the White House to settle the score on that loss.

And Hillary is absolutely determined to win.

In fact, Michelle, a good friend of Vice President Joe Biden and his wife, Jill, had hoped Biden would run for president and snatch the the Democratic Party nomination from Hillary.

According to the report, Hillary’s crowd believes President Obama doesn’t have Hillary’s work ethic.

And the Clintons also believe “Michelle hasn’t done enough as first lady,” causing some federal programs to lose funding because she didn’t make them a priority.

WND has reported in recent weeks on the Clinton family’s unleashing of a barrage of attacks on Obama and his record in the White House. On April 14, Bill Clinton took a jab at Obama’s handling of world affairs, saying, “Unlike when I was president, a lot of things are coming apart around the world now. We like to just think about our economic issues, but you have to worry about a collapse in Europe dragging back the American economy. You have to worry about the largest number of refugees since World War II. And all this stuff comes home.”

And on March 21, Bill publicly lamented the “awful legacy” of the past eight years.

Then WND reported when Chelsea Clinton took a cue from her father and bashed Obama’s key accomplishment, Obamacare.

What do YOU think? Is it war between the Clintons and Obamas? Sound off in WND’s poll.

Michelle made her resentment toward Hillary obvious when she failed to schedule any couples dinners at the White House while Hillary served as secretary of state.

A former Obama adviser reportedly told Brower, “When Michelle Obama views the Clintons, I don’t want to say she’s looking down her nose at them – but she kind of is.”

The relationship between the Obamas and Clintons has worsened following “recent charges of corruption and messy contributions to the Clintons’ Global Initiative, the family’s $2 billion foundation,” the adviser said.

“It fits the narrative about the Clintons that they come off as just trying to claw their way toward success and money.”

According to the author, Michelle sees the White House as a “really nice prison” and is looking forward to the day when she can leave and make big money on book contracts and speaking deals.

London’s Daily Mail reported that Michelle’s friends say she’s increasingly unhappy and politely declining interviews with the media.

“She is on her fourth social secretary after the departure of Jeremy Bernard, the first man and first openly gay social secretary,” the Daily Mail reports. “Turnover in her East Wing office is higher than most of her predecessors. Barack is aware of his wife’s unhappiness, but there’s little he can do until his term is over. He’s too involved in policy making as well as crafting his political legacy in these final months.”

The book says Michelle has never wanted to follow in Hillary’s footsteps and play the same role in the White House.

“The notion of sitting around the table with a set of policy advisers – no offense – makes me yawn,” she reported said.

Instead, Michelle sought to make her mark with fashion statements and her campaign against childhood obesity. She’s also taken her daughters on excursions around the world. On one trip to Spain with her daughter, Sasha, Michelle ran up a taxpayer-funded tab of more than a half-million dollars.

Michelle has also declined to join the Washington social scene that the Clintons embraced, opting instead to mingle with the Obamas’ Chicago friends, the Whitaker and Nesbitt families.

In her spare time, Michelle watches the reality show, “The Real Housewives of Atlanta,” according to the Daily Mail. And in the mornings, she watches MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”
