Hillary Clinton & US President 2016
June 15, 2014 by staff
Hillary Clinton & US President 2016, Hillary Clinton launched her memoir, Hard Choices, on Tuesday, laying the foundations for a potential presidential run with a carefully crafted self-portrait of a battle-hardened politician who has bounced back from her bruising defeat in 2008 armed with a clear vision for the future of America.
The former secretary of state, senator and first lady kicked off a typically gruelling nationwide book tour in New York in a blaze of primetime TV coverage. Less of an overt manifesto than The Audacity of Hope, Barack Obama’s book published ahead of his first White House run six years ago, Hard Choices still manages to adroitly position Clinton for a 2016 presidential bid.
The 656-page volume, reported to have earned Clinton an $8m advance, seeks to assuage any remaining liberal doubts over her 2002 vote in favour of the Iraq war, and to bat away conservative attacks over her handling of the Benghazi affair in which the US ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans died. It also makes clear that as secretary of state between 2009 and 2013 she spoke her own mind to a president whom she came to respect and like, but with whom she did not always agree.
The book finishes on a tantalizing note. “Will I run for President in 2016? The answer is, I haven’t decided yet.”
