Well, I’m sure the world is waiting breathlessly for this one.
“Shattered” is a follow-up to HRC, which offered an inside look at Clinton’s years as secretary of State.
The new book follows Clinton’s second bid for the White House, which ended in a surprise loss to Republican Donald Trump that saw the former first lady win the popular vote by 3 million votes.
Parnes co-wrote the book with Jonathan Allen, the head of content at Sidewire and a columnist at Roll Call. The two also paired up on HRC.
And we know how well that book did for her. As in, it was a dud.
This book can be seen as exactly what it is: desperate, backwards gazing and second-guessing, as Democrats try to piece together what happened to their identity politics, “first woman president” narrative.
Crown Publishing frames the book by saying, “”a big-picture narrative of the candidate’s shortcomings and misfortunes that ultimately brought down what was widely considered a sure-fire presidential victory.”
And therein lies the problem, that they will, inevitably miss.
Clinton was not owed the presidency, neither because she was a woman, nor because of her last name.
The book is scheduled for release on April 18, 2017.
