Hugh Hewitt’s new book The Queen: The Epic Ambition of Hillary and the Coming of a Second “Clinton Era” is now available at Amazon. I’ve got a review copy, but haven’t had time to read it yet. No matter: Hugh’s stated purpose is to outline the path that Hillary can take to the White House, in hopes that a wiser GOP can respond in time.
Hugh reminds us that, while we may think Hillary is a terrible candidate with a lousy record, she is, at the moment, the prohibitive favorite to be our next president. Currently European betting houses have her at better than even money. I think she can be had, but we shouldn’t underestimate the difficulty of running against the Clinton machine, the newspapers, magazines, television networks and educational institutions, and more money than has ever been spent on a political campaign in the history of the world. If Hillary were not a queen but a king, George III, then Hugh would be our Paul Revere.
So: buy The Queen. Read it, then lend it to a friend. Or, as Hugh would say, buy several and pass them out. The Clintons are coming, and that should be enough to motivate anyone.
