Hillary Clinton’s book release has Dems worried, irritated
FOX News ^ | August 17, 2017

Posted on 08/17/2017 9:42:02 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer

Democrats are on edge over Hillary Clinton’s forthcoming book that is likely to dredge up the controversies surrounding her 2016 defeat to President Trump, just as the out-of-power party is trying to "move on" and chart a course back to the majority.

The former secretary of state, U.S. senator and first lady who added Democratic presidential nominee to her resume last year apparently isn’t done with public life. She plans to release her book, “What Happened,” next month.

But Bloomberg reports that Democrats are privately concerned that Clinton’s book will help Trump, by fueling his case that Democrats are going after him because they’re bitter.

The feeling in the party was captured by Sen. Al Franken’s comment in June that she and the party have to “move on” from her shock loss.

Other prominent Democrats also have needled Clinton for her post-defeat comments.

Clinton’s public standing may have something to do with the concern: A Bloomberg poll from July showed she remains deeply unpopular, even more so than Trump, who has historically low approval ratings. The poll showed 58 percent viewed her unfavorably – Russian President Vladimir Putin had only slightly worse ratings.

How many millions was she paid for this book?

She will “sell” maximum 10,000 copies, which will all be bought by TV news networks, so their hosts can wave it on air and talk about it for 2 minutes.

My suspicion is that articles like these are being published just to help Hillary sell books. When you actually read it, you’ll see that it’s nothing but a boring bunch of self-serving BS. She’s not going to tell us where the bodies are buried. She buried them.

Hillary’s book publisher will be asking himself;
“What Happened?”

“likely to dredge up the controversies”

Someone would have to read it.

Dredge up the controversies? That is pretty funny.

What they probably mean is that she will be taking the attention away from their current controversies.

“”Trump, who has historically low approval ratings””

Really? How do his ratings get a label of “historically”?? I wasn’t aware he’d ever been rated before. Why?

Oh! I get it - HISTORY - for all of 7 months!

Simon & Schuster lost an estimated $10 million on her last book deal. This one will be no different. It’s money laundering.
