The paperclips and dog-ears seemed a little contrived at first, but I realize that it did give the appearance of a dossier that had been compiled against an enemy agent! I felt that the little, seemingly insignificant or trivial details of her life and childhood helped me to paint a better mental picure of the driving forces in Hillary's life. As a former national and state licensed therapist, the little details helped me to create a case study snapshot. The influences of the feminist movement, her continued pursuit and espousal of radicalism and socialism, her upbringing under a driven father, the upheaval of the 60's, the me-generation of the 70's, the self-consciousness towards her own body (specifically her legs), the disdain and reproachful way Bill treated her... Whew, her issues of being driven, loathing of men in general, thirst for power/dominance and control, all make sense. as another reviewer said, "When peeling back the layers, we need to know this stuff to get at what makes Hillary tick."
Looking at all the background and biographical details makes me realize (and hopefully others) that in her machinations we see clearly that she has not become more conservative or even centrist. She is a radical socialist to the core, and the most frightening thng in this revelation is that she seems to truly believe that she alone is right, that she alone is the people's champion and this sense of righteous indignation fuels her passionately to apire to the pinnacle of power at all costs.
Like a true socialist, Hillary will do anything and everything to obtain power. She will reinvent herself over and over to do so. This book shows clearly that pragmatism is all a pose to make her attractive to the broad electorate. For her, the end (her obtaining power) will justify any means.
What was most noteworthy to me, was the exposure of two significant points. One, Hillary really despises conservative Christianity and the traditional family structure; and two, when she feels threatened or makes a mistake etc, she will lash out and attack anyone, someone to take the heat off herself. I believe that much of her angst towards conservative, traditional culture is based on her indoctrination by her radical youth minister that had espoused the hard-core anarchist philosophy of Saul Alinsky.
The raw data and files and documents provided in "Dossier" were helpful in evaluating the depth and extent of Hillary (and Bill's) corruption.
The CD also tells about the policies that she intends to implement and that most of it is for financial gain and power and not to help the people. I like the part where with all her pork barrel project her state was one of the few that was going down economically while the rest of the country was moving up.
So all in all it was just funny stuff to hear and pretty tongue in cheek. If you're a die-hard Hillary fan I don't think you'll hate it, just say it's all lies and laugh it off.
I don't like mean-spirited content, and this book tested me very little. I find Carpenter's book to be as witty as Coulter columns, but a little less snippy. I didn't find that the "non-fact" opinions that occasionally followed a topic detracted from my experience. In some cases, I beat her to the punchline in my mind, and thus felt quite involved in the book. It probably deserves 4-1/2 stars for keeping the reader's attention, but I can't inflate this book at all due to the seriousness of the issues at hand. Normally, reader-engagement is integral to the quality of a book, but in this review, the focus is roundly on the ideas expressed within, not whether Ms. Carpenter is yet on par with Hemingway.
I have found most politicians to sometimes be disingenuous and/or guarded, but anyone who replies to questions in court or before congress with, "I don't know" over 250 times is exceptionally shady. If you read nothing else into this, let it be, "Mrs. Clinton is exceptionally shady." Once you know *how shady*, it'll be up to you to decide if she's fit to hold office in the greatest nation the world has ever known. There is no doubt that Mrs. Clinton was involved in a campaign finance violation for which her fund-raising committee was fined $35K ... BUT ... the committee in question has already spent the money, and now only has a couple thousand dollars. It looks like they'll default on the judgment ... slick, huh? You'll be surprised at just how slick the Clinton's are according to this book. Everything under the sun is fair game to them, and thus to this author, including:
* Hard and Soft money discrepancies in campaign funding
* Co-mingling of funds between spouses, one of whom has taken money ($16+ million) from foreign powers
* Power-brokering to the elite, foreign and domestic
* Pork barrel politics, including "earmarking" $120 million for "first responders" in NY from the money set aside for Hurricane Katrina victims (now who "doesn't care about black people", Mr. Kanye West?)
* Abominable national security ideas, including conflicting ones on identification cards and issuance of VISAs.
* Illegal immigration will be a thing of the past, b/c there will be no such thing as "illegal" immigration.
* National health care will be a boon to the poor, and a burden on the rest of us. Hillary hasn't given up on nationalizing our healthcare system. She only opposed Bush's prescription plan because it wasn't "comprehensive" enough.
* [excellent exchange between HC and Senator Rick Santorum (R-PA)] She believes that "less than perfect" fetuses should be treated differently under the law than "perfect, healthy" fetuses. Anyone seen the movie "Gattica"?
* She voted against our current Chief Justice Brown citing no reason other than politics. Can you believe turning away a stellar nominee b/c he wasn't your idea...petty behavior, and beneath the standards of the American people, I say.
* She is afraid to speak to the press, and rarely grants "hallway interviews" like so many other Senators, and indeed public figures at large, who know communicating with the press and the public is part of their job.
I could go on for ages. This woman is disgraced as a First Lady, a failure as a lawyer, a failure as a healthcare reformer, and a hired gun for NY corporations (like Corning, Inc.) and NY municipalities. Her personal fortune is of more than questionable origin, and she undoubtedly will run for President starting after the mid-terms in November of this year. America is smart enough to read the facts here and elsewhere, and make it's own decision. If nothing else, just follow the money trail in this book. Ask yourself if it's good, right, just and fair that she succeed in another "slick" maneuver. Do you want children who grow up to be "just like her"? Don't just get your news from NPR and the NY Times, read Carpenter's sources. Read the Wall Street Journal. Watch Mrs. Clinton on TV, and ask yourself if she looks like she's being forthright. This is a good place to start looking at details. This is not the "end-all" indictment of Mrs. Clinton, but it lists a lot of heavy hitters. Read it, and I trust you will be stunned at how deep the rabbit hole goes, as I was.
