really liked it
Read in February, 2008

I won't take this review as an unbridled opportunity to defend Clinton in the wake of her current demon-ization by the press (both liberal and conservative.) Suffice to say that I don't see how one can not finish this book and not gather that she is HANDS DOWN the most QUALIFIED Democratic candidate for the U.S. Presidency. This is worth the read for an appreciation of her role in breaking new ground for the first lady as ambassador and foreign policy consultant. Very interesting in light of popular indictment of her role in the failed (more like doomed) push for healthcare reform during the Clinton admin.

Also interesting to get her perspective on Whitewater, although of course, the reader must consider the source.

Oh, and the Lewinsky stuff? Handled with grace, candor and aplomb.
