HRC: State Secrets and the Rebirth of Hillary Clinton

The authors make a concerted and largely successful effort to go beyond the caricatures of one of the most admired and loathed figures in modern American politics.

“HRC” may be most valuable as a guide to future messaging, an indication of what those closest to Hillary Clinton see as her strongest moments.

In spite of its limitations, HRC does a good job of showing the tentacular reach of Clinton’s network. It is hard to imagine all these people are sticking around for old time’s sake.

After finishing “HRC” I understood, in a way I had not before, how and why the Clinton union has evolved into a juggernaut with such formidable “power to reward and punish.”

The portrait of Hillary Clinton that emerges from “H R C” is that of a woman with “a bias for action,” in one source’s words, someone who would rather act than be passive in the face of opportunity.
