review HRC author Jonathan Allen 103 read ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Jonathan Allen characters HRC author Jonathan Allen Ible events in Benghazi all while keeping one eye focused on 2016   HRC offers a rare look inside the merciless Clinton political machine as Bill Clinton handled the messy business of avenging Hillary’s primary loss while she tried to remain above the partisan fray Exploring her friendships and alliances with Robert Gates David Petraeus Leon Panetta Joe Biden and the president himself Allen and Parnes show how Hillary fundamentally transformed the State Department through the force of her celebrity and her unparalleled knowledge of how power works in Washington Filled with deep reporting and immersive storytelling this remarkable portrait of the most important female politician in American history is an essential inside look at the woman who may be our next president This is a book by political wonks for political wonks This book covers Clinton s defeat to Obama her time as Secretary of State and then includes information about how she is surely though subtly running for president in 2016 There is a lot of coverage of the Benghazi incidentattack and coverage of some her work during her four years in that position If you re not interested in the minutiae of politics if you re not a fan of Mrs Clinton or dislike reading a book based entirely on here say this might not be a good fit for you The book is well researched given its limitations but does presume that you as a reader are very familiar with the Clintons and with the political machine as well I would not recommend this for someone who sort of likes Clinton yes I call her Clinton not Hillary show some damn respect I swear when will women be given the respect that men do in that regard as your first book or look into her life Start off with her bio and then work up from there so you can better appreciate her strengths and actions On a side note if I never again see the word Hillaryland a word I guess used to denote the fantasy the Disneyland spectacle that encompasses working for her well I ll be a happy woman I was a Goodreads first reads winner

review HRC author Jonathan Allen 103 read ☆ eBook or Kindle ePUB ↠ Jonathan Allen characters HRC author Jonathan Allen The mesmerizing story of Hillary Clinton's political rebirth based on eyewitness accounts from deep inside her inner circleHillary Clinton’s surprising defeat in the 2008 Democratic primary brought her to the nadir of her political career vanuished by a much younger opponent whose message of change and cutting edge tech team ran circles around her stodgy campaign And yet six years later she has reemerged as an even powerful and influential figure a formidable stateswoman and the presumed front runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination marking one of the great political comebacks in history   The story of Hillary’s phoenixlike rise is at the heart of HRC a riveting political biography that journeys into the heart of “Hillaryland” to discover a brilli In brief this is a fly on the wall journalistic account of Hillary Clinton from the end of the 2008 primary campaign to the present with the focus being on a likely presidential run in 2016 The focus of the book is a her improving personal relationship with Obama after the extended primary fight b her strategy to reposition herself as a unifying candidate within the Democratic Party which seems to be entirely successful and c her management style at the State Department and political maneuvering in the Obama White HouseHRC isn t so much a foreign policy book and large swathes of first term Obama policy are treated lightly for example the reset with Russia the pivot towards Asia etc This is a shame because I personally would have like to hear what the next Democratic nominee has to say about for example counter terrorism policy or the NSA programBut there are other books about Obama s foreign policy and I thought that there was plenty of information in HRC that was interesting to me I was interested in the deliberate campaign by the Clintons to punish those who endorsed Obama during the primary this recieved a lot of hyperbole in the media Hillary s enemies list and so forth because the timing of the book s release encouraged a facile comparison with Chris Christie s expanding scandals but thankfully Allen and Amie Parnes don t indulge in that kind of nonsense in their narrativeThe enemies list in uestion is a large Excel spreadsheet of supporters and opponents in the 2008 primary which included a 1 7 scale of betrayal and markers for extenuating circumstances like if an Obama supporter was a member of the Illinois congressional delegation or the Congressional Black Caucus From then on the Clintons deliberately weighed in on Democratic primaries to punish opponents and support allies For example Kathleen Kane Pennsylvania s attorney general won the nomination over Congressman and Obama supporter Patrick Murphy with the prominent support of Bill Clinton Kane is young and popular and polls well against Senator Pat Toomey suggesting that she could be a powerful friend to the Clintons for years to come What s remarkable about this campaign that the Clintons were able to carry it out for the past six years without endangering HRC s above the fray image or jeopardzing the near unverisal support she has in the Democratic establishment It speaks volumes about her political adroitness that she could suare that circleSimilarly Hillary was a formidable inside player in the Obama White House You could say with some justice that Hillary Clinton played a subordinate role in Obama s foreign policy one reason why the coverage in this book is a little light but the same has been true of countless Secretaries of State in the postwar era But Clinton was uniuely influential among Cabinet members both in her ability to ally with other players like Defense Secretary Robert Gates to influence policy and in her ability to staff State with her loyalists not Obama s The book really reveals the degree to which Obama allowed Hillary to build up her 2016 campaign as the price of peace within the Democratic partyHRC isn t an essential read certainly and I can t imagine it has much appeal outside of people who are addicted to this kind of fly on the wall political journalism but I found it interesting as a contemporary potrait of a woman who may well be President three years from now
