HIL­LARY’S ‘DOOMED CAM­PAIGN’ AR­RIVES

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

The lat­est Hil­lary-themed book hits the shelves Tues­day and could well to blaze a path to the most-read roster. “Shat­tered: In­side Hil­lary Clin­ton’s Doomed Cam­paign” by Jonathan Allen and Amie Banes has been rated No. 1 in sev­eral pol­i­tics and gov­ern­ment cat­e­gories on Ama­zon well be­fore its pub­li­ca­tion.

“No ex­pla­na­tion of de­feat can be­gin with any­thing other than the core prob­lem of Hil­lary’s cam­paign — the can­di­date her­self. ‘Shat­tered’ will of­fer an ob­ject les­son in how Hil­lary her­self made vic­tory an uphill bat­tle, how her dif­fi­culty ar­tic­u­lat­ing a vi­sion ir­repara­bly hob­bled her im­pact with vot­ers, and how the cam­paign failed to in­ter­nal­ize the lessons of pop­ulist fury from the hard­fought pri­mary against Bernie San­ders,” pub­lisher Crown Books ad­vises in ad­vance notes.

The new book will face po­lit­i­cal com­pe­ti­tion on The New York Times Best­seller List when the time comes. Cur­rently No. 1 in the non-fic­tion realm: “Old School: Life in the Sane Lane” by Bill O’Reilly and Bruce Feirstein, de­scribed as a de­fense of old school tra­di­tional val­ues ver­sus those of the ul­tra-sen­si­tive “snowflakes” gen­er­a­tion. Also in the top-10 is “Nev­er­the­less” by ac­tor and fre­quent Trump im­per­son­ator Alec Bald­win.

Another book is mak­ing some head­way through the treach­er­ous pub­lish­ing seas. “Drain the Swamp: How Wash­ing­ton Cor­rup­tion is Worse then You Think,” by Rep. Ken Buck is also ap­pear­ing in the top po­lit­i­cal cat­e­gories at Ama­zon, com­plete with a cover than in­cludes the U.S. Capi­tol and an al­li­ga­tor.

“It is an in­su­lar process di­rected by power-hun­gry party elites who live like kings and gov­ern like bul­lies,” the Colorado Repub­li­can writes.
