Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

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.

Review

"Estrich argues the finer points of electing a Clinton II presidency, and paints New York's junior senator as a savior not jut for the Democratic Party, but for all women." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Hardcover
I am a life-long Republican and watch Ms. Estrich on FoxNews, so I picked up this book and read it in two hours... it's well-written and packed with interesting insights and stories about presidential campaigns. I highly recommend it regardless of your political beliefs. Can Hillary win? I hate to break it to all you haters, but she has a shot. Ms. Estrich makes compelling arguments as to how she has transformed into a powerful centrist senator and shrewd politician. I don't think Condi will run, so I'm not sure who we have who can beat her... it's going to be an interesting race in 2008.

P.S. Don't listen to all these overtly partisan reviews, anyone interested in hearing a balanced argument should read this book.

The law scholar and US presidential campaigner, Susan Estrich,is trying her best for making the case for Hillary. I think it very unlikely that the current "Madam Secretary" is running for the next US president against Hillary. If she does, she would certainly be beaten by Hillary. So the Republicans would nominate somebody else such as Rudolph Giuliani and
John McCain. In either case, Hillary would not be easily beaten by either man. Then why not challenging? In my opinion, the time is ripe for Americans to elect the first "Madam President" for a change. Then the rest of world would be willing to listen seriously to what she would say, which is truly inspiring. We have been fed up with what George Bush, Jr. kept saying... His talk is nothing intellligent, but simply bloody and boring. We are planning to translate this book into Japanese so that many other non-English speaking people can share this fascinating book during the 2008 US election.

Ms. Estrich's case is smart, funny, suprising and eminently readable. If you can imagine a woman being President, this is a must-read. If you can't imagine a woman being President, this is a must-read.

Format: Paperback
I'm surprised considering the recent publication of this book, and its now very relevant subject matter, that it isn't read more. I got my copy used dirt cheap. I am a liberal independent. I have on rare occasions voted for Republicans, but my politics tend to be left of center. Thus, you'd think this book would grab me and make me change my mind - it didn't. The author writes like an attorney defending Ms. Clinton in court. As they say in law school, "When the law is against you, argue the facts. When the facts are against you, argue the law. When both are against you, pound the podium." Seems like there's much podium pounding going on in this book.

My problems with Ms. Clinton are as follows - she takes us all as fools ("I've always been a Yankee fan"), feels like she's much smarter than all of us, and does not think that the unjust disposition of a few little people that get in her way (White House Travel Office e.g.) really matters in the grand scheme of things. These are all serious character flaws - character flaws not addressed in this book, and character flaws that make me not want Ms. Clinton to be President. Nothing brings out character flaws like the pressures of the Presidency, and if Ms. Clinton becomes the first woman president she may also be the last for years to come because of this. This is the opposite of the author's prediction.

As for the state of Ms. Clinton's marriage, contrary to the author's opinion, I don't care what kind of personal life she has. I know few people that really do. It is obvious to everyone that Bill and Hillary have an arranged power-sharing agreement - just don't try to pull my leg about this to the point of amputation. Again, this just goes back to Hillary believing she is smarter than everyone else.

Format: Hardcover
This is a great book for starters for Hillary Clinton's run in 2008. Susan has transformed herself on Fox News in recent years from the flaming liberal to a sensible speaking woman. I am a conservative and I know that Hillary has a great chance to become the first woman president of the United States....mostly because most of us women...ESPECIALLY after Bill Clinton was president...are READY for a woman in the Oval Office. No one should underestimate Hillary's chances. We Republicans don't seem to have an alternative besides Condi Rice to run against Hillary...and Condi keeps saying she won't run. We don't have anyone with the name recognition. Susan Estrich wrote this book on the cutting edge of time to sell a book like this...and noticing the make over she displays on TV...she seems to think she might have a chance in a Hillary campaign and administration. Watch out all you fellow conservatives! The book makes a good case for Senator Clinton...

If I ever had any doubts about supporting Hillary Rodham Clinton for President, this book dispelled any such notions. When I first read the book over a year ago, I was impressed with the manner in which Estrich 'makes the case' for Hillary's superior intellect making her a great choice. Now that I have heard so many say that when watching the debates they notice that Hillary appears to be the smartest of the Democratic candidates, I am reminded of Estrich's book. I bought five extra copies to give to friends!
