Big Media, Hillary Haters and campaign opponents are all atwitter about 2 books about to be published. They hope that these books will demolish the Hillary for President campaign.
We recall years ago when Tucker Carlson stated he would eat his shoe if Hillary’s upcoming autobiography Living History sold 1 million copies. Soon thereafter he was seen salting his booties at the dinner table. A few weeks ago the noise was about 2 other books about to be published that would sink the Hillary campaign. Did you know they have already been published?
The purpose of all these books is to make money but there is also a political component to their publication. Originally these 2 upcoming books were to be published in the fall in order to impact the campaign season. Due to the competition for sales and the desire to be first, the books are now scheduled to be published in early June. The early publication date will diminish even further the little chance these books have of influencing the course of events.
The publicity flack for one of these books made the political/sales motivation clear in yesterday’s New York Times by explaining they were releasing excerpts of the book on June 3rd because “the Democratic primary debate in New Hampshire on June 3 “presented a significant coverage event for our book,” which traces Senator Clinton’s life through her decision to run for president.”
This flack further added that “the publisher would be sending out copies to members of the media and to campaign managers for all presidential candidates in both parties next Tuesday.” This is a sad and desperate ploy to generate publicity for a pair of books that will create as much of a wave as a pebble striking the Pacific Ocean.
In 2005 there were at least 3 books attempting to derail Hillary’s senate campaign. This year we have 2 books published already and another 2 books emerging in June. The old zest and verve in anti-Hillary books is gone however. In previous years the authors of these screeds actually believed they would accomplish the destruction of Hillary. Now they just look at the calendar to see how they can profit from her ascension to the White House.
We checked Amazon to see how many books have been published about Hillary. Here is a short list of some books about Hillary Clinton. The long list of Hillary books serves to underline the many years of experience Hillary has as well as how she has prospered under this examination. Few people, let alone political candidates can withstand such minute examination of their lives. Here is a short list of some of the Hillary books we found:

But every year, after every book is written, one thing remains the same: Abraham Lincoln was a great man; Hillary Clinton is a great woman.
