Book Review: Hard Choices by Hillary Rodham Clinton
The Only Woman to Ever Be a First Lady, a Senator, a Secretary of State and a Presidential Nominee for a Major Political Party
Hillary Clinton Has Had a Unique Viewpoint of Recent History
Recently, hundreds of residents of Los Angeles, California stood in line for up to seven hours outside a shopping center called The Grove in order to meet Hillary Rodham Clinton and get an autographed copy of her latest book, "Hard Choices."
This book is a biographical review of her four years as Secretary State during the first term of President Barack Obama. She admits that she was surprised when he asked her to serve in this capacity, especially after their hard fought primary election battle in which she had opposed him.
Hilary Clinton's memories of her service as Secretary of State are fascinating. By the time she completed her four years of service, she had traveled nearly a million miles and visited 112 countries, giving her a unique perspective on important issues throughout the world, including poverty, energy innovations and climate change.
Ms. Clinton also discusses the tumultuous events that occurred during President Obama's first term, including winding down the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the 2012 attack on our embassy in Benghazi, Libya, our relationships with China and North Korea, and the capture of Osama bin Laden.
In her book, she also discusses her viewpoints about human rights, including the empowerment of women and the LGBT community.
Some people have read this detailed book in the hope that they will find a hint regarding whether or not Hilary Clinton plans to run for president in 2016. While the book does not even give a clue regarding her decision, it does help us understand her values and could serve as a detailed resume of her international and foreign affairs experience ... which far exceeds that of any other potential candidate.
While the book is obviously written from her point-of-view of world affairs during Obama's first term as president, it is also a fascinating record of the events that took place during this period of history.
Whether you are a supporter of Hilary Clinton, a historian, or simply interested in the current state of international affairs, you will discover that this book is fascinating to read.
