HRC by Jonathan Allen & Amie Parnes
She may try for the nomination again in 2016. Therefore you should know what you are going to be voting for.
Reading this book you come away with the feeling Hillary has a vindictive streak. She keeps records of wrongs done her and seeks to repay.
She is a type A personality and a choleric. She can make quick decisions and stick with them. She will listen to you but her mind is already made up.
“None can predict the future, and promises in Washington have a way of vanishing into the humid air, but to a remarkable degree, throughout her tenure at State, Hillary would stick to the philosophy and agenda she outlined in her confirmation hearing. Whether that’s a sign of a sound strategy or stubbornness, the continuity is undependable.” The authors point out.
She has accomplished great things in her years in politics that will portend her future activities.
The authors major on Hillary’s term as Secretary of State under Obama. They detail the decisions she make working with him and how she handled herself under pressure. After all, she may run in 2014 and you want to know what she may be like if elected to office
What drew me to this book is firstly that it isn’t written by Hillary. Therefore the facts can’t be bent to whitewash reality. Secondly the writers, Allen and Parnes, are newspaper reporters who cover this area normally. They can present facts that can be verified.
I recommend this book for the general information it gives.
