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.

Everyone of them basically tells the same story.

I am not a big Hillary fan, but she, like any literary subject, deserves fairness and accuracy.

Everyone who plans to vote should read this book.

Format: Hardcover
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.

The only reason I didn't give Buchanan's book five stars is because what she did was really nothing more than point out the history of Hillary Clinton. She simply reminds us of Hillary's track record, though Ms. Buchanan does so in a very entertaining fashion. There is nothing that could possibly be challenged in the book: It's all a matter of record. I encourage anyone who is terrified of the possibility of a President Hillary Clinton, or anyone who would love for her to become President, to read this book. The former will find they are justified. The latter may realize what a huge mistake they are making.

The Extreme Makeover - - another "state of emergency" - - if it should prove successful

I have written about the threat from the ultra liberals and far lefters before. This has included substantial effort focused on our former VP (see all my reviews). And I have written about the writings of Bay Buchanan's brother, Patrick and his book State of Emergency. Perhaps it is a bit coincidental, but Bay's new book: The Extreme Makeover, is also about a "state of emergency", namely the situation we would face if Hillary Clinton were elected President. Bay Buchanan warns the American electorate that if they don't do their homework, on who Hillary Clinton really is, that the "consequences of doing less are too grave to consider."

Bay Buchanan doesn't waste much time on telling her readers where she stands. Examples:
* the front book flap tells us that Hillary "has always been in her adult life a dedicated, unapologetic liberal."
* And the back book cover quotes Kate O'Beirne: "In her indispensable exposé, Bay Buchanan reveals Hillary Clinton in her natural state--and its not pretty. Buchanan strips away Clinton's moderate makeover and reveals a left-wing record that can't be disguised."
* Back to the front book flap. "As Buchanan makes clear, not only can Hillary not be trusted, but her `makeover' is exactly what one would expect from an unprincipled left-wing politician."

Hillary's record includes a 2004 speech: "It's time to put the common good - - - ahead of individuals."
"Hillary's view of government is simple. "It is to remold society. It can do so by coercion, as in the case of health care; by indoctrination, as in the case of education; or by redistributing the wealth through tax and spend policies.
