The Hunting of Hillary: The Forty-Year Campaign to Destroy Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton has endured more than thirty years of vilification and slander. She is no saint, but probably no worse than any other politician. This book is not an indictment of her persecutors. It is a remarkably fair-minded account of Clinton’s life in politics and the enmity she has provoked. It is chilling to relive the many Clinton scandals. The author writes of prosecutor Brett Kavenaugh obscenely slurring Mrs. Clinton and demanding lurid details of her husband’s intimate foibles with Monica Lewinsky. So, Mrs. Clinton has endured intimate pain from political foes and more deeply from her spouse. We all may remember her I’m no stand by your man woman speech and how it is belied by her deep continuing connection with her husband. In like manner, the more abuse she endures, the stronger her fight to remain politically relevant and aspiring. We think of her eleven-hour ordeal at the hands of Senate Republicans and what inner strength she must have. In a strange way, the fact that she has been so targeted, must mean that she presented the greatest threat to the existing political order. A fascinating woman and interesting account.
