In breaking barriers and making history, Hillary Clinton has few equals in American public life. She was the most activist First Lady since Eleanor Roosevelt, the first First Lady to be elected to the U.S Senate, the first First Lady to run for president, and the winner of more votes than any woman running for any U.S elected office. Yet her path has been anything but smooth. Few politicians have provoked such scorn from across America’s great divide—or have had to endure such epic setbacks and scandal. Now, with a resilient Hillary on the brink of another possible run for the presidency, all eyes have turned to signs of her intentions. In this new book by the correspondents of TIME’S Washington bureau, her singular life story is told anew, with an eye to what kind of a leader she would be. Among the insights:
Hillary's Unique Celebrity:
”Clinton is so globally famous, so primed for the presidency that her life as a private citizen has become virtually indistinguishable from her life as a candidate,” writes David Von Drehle.”There’s not a door she can’t open nor a camera she can’t command.”
Her Political Evolution:
From a Goldwater Girl as a teen, Hillary was transformed in college into a feminist icon and champion of social justice. “Since Xmas vacation,” she wrote, “I've gone through three and a half metamorphoses.”
Her White House Lessons:
Change is really, really hard. Don’t trust the press. Soldier on—and other takeaways from eight years as First Lady.
Her Methodist Faith:
How it guides her through crises and helps set her political agenda. “As a Christian,” she says, “part of my obligation is to take action to alleviate suffering.”
