Format: Hardcover
Most conservatives are completely baffled by the Hillarymania of today's liberals. A recent poll illustrates that she remains a highly polarizing figure among the American electorate. Should she run in 2008, the right will have no trouble turning out its base as 48% of the population hold an unfavorable view of her. Her road to victory will be formidable, but the Clintons have encountered numerous challenges over the years and emerged victorious time after time. It is undoubtedly for this reason that R. Emmett Tyrrell, Jr. (with Mark Davis) decided to write Madame Hillary: The Dark Road to the White House.
Their account is a brief political history of the woman who could be queen. It is also an attempt to warn us of what may happen should she seize power. This biography gazes into the future and is terrified by what may be.
The "Madame" in the title refers to China's Madame Mao who was known as "the white boned demon." Tyrrell does not accuse Hillary Clinton of being a demon but does believe that the respectable person presented to us by her PR department does not in fact exist. Senator Clinton is a "Coat and Tie Radical" who has never forgotten or disowned the revolutionary ideas of the 1960's. Society exists for her and her kind to reconfigure.
As the allusion to Madame Mao may have informed you, this book is not an objective account of Hillary's life. It is written from the perspective of a warrior in the Clinton Wars and there is nothing equivocal in its narration.
As Editor in Chief of The American Spectator, R. Emmett Tyrrell's experiences with the Clintons were legion and none of them produced pleasure. He recounts a story when he ran across Bill in the Jockey Club. He decided to ask him a question.

One of the most useful aspects of this important and entertaining book is the light it sheds on how the Clintons (both of them) habitually respond to any criticism: (1) Vigorously deny it; (2) Launch ad hominem attacks on the critic; (3) Act personally victimized by the criticism ("Why do they hate me?"); and (4) Say the critic is obsessing over "old news." Some of the reviews on this page prove their supporters have learned the script well.

The Clintons and their scandals are hardly old news, given that she is a powerful US Senator and presumptive candidate for the presidency. Bob Tyrrell has had the Clintons' number from the beginning. And in this book, he picks up the late Barbara Olsen's torch as the writer with perhaps the clearest understanding of Hillary Clinton, her deeply radical, if deeply camouflaged, designs for our country, her lust for power, and how she intends to go about winning it.

The problem is that the Clintons arouse such strong feelings, both pro and con, that it can be difficult to separate the facts from the *Kultursmog* (such a great word -- I've admired it for years). Tyrrell and coauthor Mark Davis have done the heavy lifting for us, giving us chapter-and-verse not only on the Clintons' Arkansas and White House years, but also Madame Hillary's journey "from Methodism to Maoism" (p. 120) and into the ranks of Coat and Tie Radicals. Like Olsen, Tyrrell sees the heavy hand of Saul Alinsky not only in her early radical years, but also in her approach to politics and power even today. This is enlightening and disturbing reading.

I should start this review by saying I used to subscribe to the liberal agenda. I believed in state sponsored dole programs, government intervention in the affairs of everyday life, and the use of the judiciary to bring about change. Yes, my friends, I even voted for Bill Clinton in 1996. Then, about six or seven years ago, I experienced what I can only describe as an epiphanic experience, a Kuhnian paradigm shift in my political outlook. Several factors accounted for my sudden migration away from the liberal cosmology. Arguably the largest influence on my new sense of the world occurred from reading history. I quickly saw that the ideas of today's elites didn't jibe with reality, that these concepts had been tried before and had always failed. Even worse, not only did liberalism fail, it brought about the end of civilizations. The scandals emanating from the Clinton White House also did a lot to dampen my enthusiasm for the liberal "truths." Anyone who could blindly support the Clintons despite the deluge of lies, smears, and outright crimes perpetrated by the dynamic duo are truly pathetic creatures in dire need of help. The idea of Hillary Clinton running for, let alone winning, the presidency of this great nation is a notion that sends chills down my spine.
"Hillary for President" also scares R. Emmett Tyrrell and Mark W. Davis, so much so that the two conservatives decided to write this slim novel outlining the ways Hillary will attempt to usher in an era of far left quackery the likes of which even Lenin, Stalin, and Mao could not have foreseen.
