Peggy Noonan, a speechwriter for the Reagan White House and one of our most astute political observers, argues in this compelling book that Americans must look closely at Hillary Rodham Clinton and the implications of her calculated bid for power. In The Case against Hillary Clinton, she offers an eye-opening assessment of the scandals and failures of the Clinton years, from Whitewater to health care to the Filegate and Travelgate affairs, which cast a revealing light on the first lady's motives and behavior. She poses searching questions about the difference between public service and lip service, between the whole truth and the shameless parade of evasion and spin marshaled throughout the Clinton years. As Hillary's ambition seeks ever greater heights, Noonan takes the measure of the woman and the politician and makes a passionate argument against her candidacy.… (mer)

From reading Peggy Noonan's op-eds over the years, I've come to the conclusion that I like reading her when she likes her story. And she hates anything Clinton. While I like some of the facts discussed in the book, overall I found it to be a bit catty. ( )

I read this book because I like Peggy Noonan. Hillary Clinton is, of course, the devil, but why write a book about it? I can't really recommend this as a book to read for good information. As Noonan is a notorious conservative, you'd do well to be watchful for a slant in the facts. ( )

This is a very short polemic on the character of the former first lady by Reagan speechwriter and author of "What I saw at the revolution" and other works. In this book the writer is alleging that Senator Clinton feels entitled to power, Noonan summarizes her involvement in a number of scandals. So many scandals and a good teflon suit. This book shows once again, as many other do, that Hillary cares about only one thing, Hillary. As with any book about Hillary Clinton, this book conatians some strong language. And is a fast read, so spend an afternoon and read it. ( )

Clinton Fatigue. It's the reaction people have when they hear O.J. hit his girlfriend, or they found Jeffrey Dahmer's cookbook. Yeah, so?

This was yet another book on Hillary Clinton. This one tells by example why she is the way she is. It was very well-written. I read it in two days.

One of the key sections o this book is a meeting between Hillary and entertainment executives. The author happened to be at the house in the kitchen. She fired up her tape recorder and got the entire speech. Mrs. Clinton was railing into the execs about the content of their movies and shows. I started to feel that maybe Hillary isn't that self-absorbed. Maybe her "caring about children" isn't really just talk. Then the author reveals she (Noonan) made the whole thing up. It would have been really nice if Hillary HAD made this speech. But Noonan's point had been made. Hillary wouldn't do the right thing at the expense of her political career, her "friends", or her cash flow.

Noonan examines what Mrs. Clinton has accomplished in her career. Nothing. She's never authored one piece of legislation, or lowered taxes. There was the Health Care Reform debacle that she headed. She worked for a short time at the Rose Law Firm. She and her supporters talk about her leadership, her experience, and her ability to get things done. Huh?
She has lived in government housing for over twenty years. She's never picked the kids up from school, cleaned house, run errands, fixed dinner, paid bills, gone to sleep exhausted, and gotten up the next day to do it all again. When Chelsea was a baby she tried to hire a nanny to look after her and claim it was "extra security". And yet she seems to have all the answers as to how the government should take care of children and families. She wrote articles in the '70s about how divorce and the women's movement was deteriorating the nuclear family, and because of this the government should step in and raise the kids.
The other fascinating aspect of Mrs. Clinton was revealed in an interview with a close friend of Hillary's. She refused to say anything specific, but showed Noonan a book Borderline Conditions and Pathological Narcissism. In summary, she says Bill and Hillary need to be loved and admired by others, but they also have a very inflated concept of themselves. It's a vicious circle. Without mass approval their concept of themselves falls. In other words, they need to be in our lives for a long, long time.

This was an eye-opening and fascinating book. Not because we hear about all the scandals and problems with Hillary. But because we learn why she is the way she is.

New York, I feel your pain. ( )
