Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With the Bush administration now in its final years, all eyes are turning to the 2008 political season — especially those of Democratic voters, who are casting about for a galvanizing leader to help them win back the White House.

And in that role, argues longtime political strategist Susan Estrich, no candidate even approaches the power and promise of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the senator from New York. She is, by far, not only the most popular Democratic leader in the country, but also one of its most popular and admired politicians, period. Both a passionate spokesperson for progressive values and a strong advocate for our troops overseas, she has used her time in the Senate to establish herself successfully as a genuine political powerhouse. There is no candidate whose election would bring such vitality and lasting change into the White House. And she offers Americans a once-in-a-lifetime chance to break the world's most prominent glass ceiling and elect a female president of the United States.

In an atmosphere where conservative Hillary-bashing is still as virulent as ever, Estrich demonstrates all the reasons that this principled leader still blows away any other potential contender in the early polls for 2008. And, with arguments both stirring and sensible, she reminds us that if Hillary should succeed, America and the world would be changed forever and for the better.

Review:

"A political strategist who's worked with Michael Dukakis, Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, Estrich (Sex and Power) doesn't make any bones about her political beliefs. She's for education, choice, gay rights, the environment, accessible health care and balanced budgets, and she expects that her readers will be, too. So it's the members of her own party, and the moderates of the Republican party, that Estrich aims to persuade with this lively book on why Hillary Clinton should be elected president in 2008. 'The reality is that Hillary isn't running yet, but her opponents are already running against her,' Estrich writes. The recent slew of anti-Hillary books, she argues, is designed to undermine Clinton's candidacy because Republicans, who have elected such divisive presidents as Ronald Reagan and Bush 43, understand that just because a candidate is polarizing doesn't mean than she can't win. Estrich takes on Ed Klein's, Peggy Noonan's and Dick Morris's books directly, but her main argument lies elsewhere. Clinton, she says, is the only woman in America capable of becoming president, and if she wins, her mere election will further the cause of mothers and daughters everywhere. 'She has become a symbol of all of us, of our generation of women,' Estrich writes. 'She wins, we win. She loses, we lose. That's how it works.' With its detailed analysis of past campaigns, its handling of both symbolic measures and policy points, and its juicy dish about past Democratic candidates, this is the most convincing-and most entertaining-argument for Hillary yet."

Book News Annotation:

Will she be the first female American president? She certainly has a chance, opines Estrich (law and political science, U. of Southern California Law School). Estrich evaluates Clinton's record and the reasons why she inspires enthusiastic support and vehement castigation almost at the same moment. Estrich analyzes why reactions to Clinton are not always based upon her sex, why Clinton's policies are often ignored but her personality receives close scrutiny, and why she cannot seem to shake the ever-present memory of Bill Clinton's legacy. However, Estrich's primary goal is to make a strong case for nomination if not election. The result is well-researched, and also clearly biased.
