HILLARY’S ‘DOOMED CAMPAIGN’ ARRIVES
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.
