Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Buchanan, former U.S. treasurer and sister of former presidential nominee Pat Buchanan, takes Hillary Clinton to task in this unapologetically partisan biography. Buchanan outlines how Clinton's personality and character changed after she was elected to the Senate, casting mock sympathy as she goes: "It must be a terrible thing to be as deeply insecure as Hillary. It has made her so incredibly susceptible to the ideas of others." Subsequent chapters criticize the senator's positions on hot-button issues, including healthcare, same-sex partnerships and the war in Iraq. Though Buchanan backs up many of her points with outside scholarship and Clinton's own interviews and records (both as senator and student), claims that Clinton "accepts no responsibility" and disregards "even the most basic standards of behavior" make this a sermon for the choir.

FAR LEFT IDEALOGY

She harbors a deeply cynical view of the traditional family and thinks kid should be able to sue their parents to resolve family arguments.

In an article "Children Under the Law" she equates the legal minority status of children to slavery and thinks married women should be emancipated. She even equates the family itself with slavery and the Indian reservation system.

She served in 1987-88 as director and chair of the board of directors of the New World Foundation. In 1987, Hillary and the New World gave $15,000 to the National Lawyers Guild, which was founded as an adjunct to the American Communist party. In 1988, she gave $5,000 to the Committee in Support of the People of El Salvador, which was a support group for the Communist guerrillas in El Salvador. The list goes on and on to include scores of other more obscure but equally radical left-wing groups.

There are those who would excuse Hillary's involvement in radical politics because she was just a kid. But she wasn't just a kid. She was 40 years old and knew exactly what she was doing when she sponsored the hard left from her perch at the New World Foundation.

She would later become the most influential First Lady in history in setting U.S. policy. And her husband would become the first President in 37 years who did not issue a proclamation during Captives Nations Week... speaking out against the horrors of Communism or others forms of tyranny.

HATRED OF LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICIALS

Hillary was openly hostile to policemen and state troopers, calling them "pigs". One trooper said that Hillary forbade him to speak when he accompanied her on a trip to Washington because, as she put it, he "sounded like a hick from Arkansas.

I am a lifelong Democrat with quiet misgivings about this year's race (and a native New Yorker a little--not hugely--unsettled that an Illinois native, by way of Arkansas and D.C., has ended up our senator). I was prepared for Ms. Buchanan's conclusions. However, I was unprepared for the depth and integrity of her research. This is a soundly written book. It's a sobering, even a frightening, assessment of the practices, policies, rhetoric, and cronyism we might face if we elected the person who emerges from these pages. I urge people to read this book before deciding whom to support as a Democratic candidate. It has rattled me sufficiently that the decision has become a matter of conscience.

Format: Hardcover
Bay Buchanan does an incredible job in gathering the speeches, talks, conversations, radio/TV appearances and other sources where Hillary expounds on everything from the war in Iraq, weapons of mass destruction to abortion and "It Takes a Village." She also interviews both friends of Ms. Clinton's and other Democrats as well. Ms. Buchanan then compiles all this information both past and present to present a picture of both where Senator Clinton stands on the issues and where her advisors (for good or ill) have told her to stand.

Reading this book may not convince you either way on voting for Senator Clinton for President in 2008, but it should give you insight into her true positions on such issues as education, abortion, the military, feminism, taxes and economics to name a few.

A very informative book for votes in any political party. Highly recommended!

Format: Hardcover
Bay Buchanan, the younger sister of Pat Buchanan and former Treasurer of the United States, offers up some unique bulbs of observation amidst a larger garden of perennial wisdom. She updates the earlier tomes with an exploration of Mrs. Clinton's time in the Senate and provides a central theme that is both compelling and persuasive. Her idee fixe is that character is a monumental aspect of leadership and that Hillary Clinton is entirely devoid of it.

The Extreme Makeover illustrates Hillary's unfamiliarity with the virtue of responsibility, and that she is every bit as prolific and stunning a liar as her husband. Buchanan traces the scandals integral to Mrs. Clinton's existence and finds one element common with them all: she could have mitigated the damage in practically every instance had she admitted the truth from the outset. This was trued of her venture into cattle futures, the Whitewater fiasco, Travelgate, her collection of FBI records on "perceived enemies," and the Grand White House Looting scheme of 2001. Yet, self-admission is not something of which Hillary has ever been capable--she would prefer to blame others. The author describes her as a card-carrying member of "the National Association of Victimhood." It may take several decades to document all the mistruths inherent to a second Clinton administration...and by then, in the words of Christopher Hitchens, they'll be no one left to lie to.

Apart from style, The Extreme Makeover succeeds in warning readers of what a Hillary Clinton presidency will look like, and, more precisely, who it will target. A made over person is exactly the Hillary we see lecturing us on CNN and CBS. The real would-be queen is simply not fit for widespread consumption.
