WHAT A magnificent cover, the newly released teaser of HRC, due out in February, written by Politico’s Jonathan Allen and The Hill’s Amie Parnes.
“Would you reconsider, perhaps stay another year? Obama asked,” according to an excerpt from the upcoming book “HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton.” “No, Hillary said. It was time for her to leave public office.” [Politico]
It’s the best cover I’ve seen since my own for The Hillary Effect, which reveals Clinton in the aftermath of the slug fest of the 2007-2008 primary season.
In fact, these two covers best depict, graphically and in their titling, just how far Hillary Clinton has risen, resurrected her reputation, and burnished her gravitas since she was pilloried during her first run for the presidency.
There has been such good feedback on my book, the history, the accuracy, but especially the story it tells, that my publisher will be offering it widely in 2014 and for the first time in book stores and libraries, too.
Most importantly, there is also enough distance from the bruising battle between Hillary and Obama that more people are finally now willing to read the history of the great primary that pitted two giant political Democratic talents against each other. That became our biggest obstacle when my book was first released two years ago next month. I got dozens and dozens of emails about how people just couldn’t relive the heartache, wishing me well on the book. A whole new audience awaits a book that was meticulously fact checked, researched, and delivers the story of the 2008 primary season.
Seen from the vantage point of today, the media’s change from 2008 to today has been a tectonic shift, which my book proves with facts, quotes and anecdotes that reveal just how far Hillary Clinton has come since then.
Juxtaposed next to each other, these two covers tell the story of the last years of growth in HRC’s power and prowess, as Hillary Clinton considers a second presidential run, which will be nothing like the last.
