I know the fawning masses of the true Democratic Party will rush to buy this and it doesn't really matter to Hilary since I'm certain she got a nice 7 figure advance. Although writing is seen to be cathartic by many and a way to find truths emotions sometimes hide, in typical Hillary fashion we see denial of events, denial of personal responsibility and (of course) her trademark blame game.
Thanks to USA Today and other news outlets we get a glimpse of what is destined to be stuck somewhere in between auto biographies and fiction in mainly northern bookstores.

She dedicates some space to none other than Bernie Sanders. Some excerpts:
His attacks caused lasting damage, making it harder to unify progressives in the general election
As if she should not have been exposed to the politics of a primary run? As if anyone who followed the primary run knows what each candidate said about the other. Although Americans find the negativity surrounding presidential campaigns disheartening we understand it is the way they do it. Perhaps 'What's good for the goose is good for the gander' is not a bit of wisdom Hillary was exposed to at any point in her development. Or, more likely, Hillary felt the nomination was her due and Bernie had no right to seek it out; giving her the God given right to sling mud while everyone else should understand that mud should never be returned to her direction?
He didn't get into the race to make sure a Democrat won the White House, he got in to disrupt the Democratic Party," The fact that the democratic party has had to continually circle the wagons to protect Hillary, elevate Hillary, and create unreasonable expectations of support for Hillary would be ample evidence to an average person that their presence was a disruptive influence. Not our Hillary. No no. Her shenanigans, alone, cost the Democrats the presidency in 2016. Will she ever own it? When pigs fly, perhaps.
'attacks from the "Bernie Bros" got "ugly and more than a little sexist," Let's not blame Hillary supporters of attacks against Bernie which were discriminatory because of his religion. But, since Hillary attempted time and again to use the sex card in her campaign while allowing her supporters to denigrate evangelicals, Catholics and Jews, could we reasonably expect her to understand the hypocrisy? And how could she admit it even had she seen it since she constantly attempted to use sex to her advantage during the campaign? She could not have admitted that attacks on women for not being faithful to her for the sole reason that she was a woman were as as ridiculous as had Bernie suggested Jews would be foolish not to support a Jew.
We could see Hillary as working through her denial and hope that some day she would see the truth but would that be realistic? After all hasn't the majority of her adult life been about lies, subterfuge, mud slinging and attempts to hide the facts? From her days as a politician's wife through today she has blamed failures and problems within the political arena on everything from right wing conspiracies and bimbos to misogyny, former FBI director James Comey, Wikileaks and Russian interference.
In a world demanding truth I think her book would sit firmly in fiction but, that's not America today. Today we know that many think if they dig their heels in and insist a lie is the truth, long enough, they can convince themselves that others would be fools not to believe it.
I won't be reading her book, but I have little doubt she will rationalize her way through every mistake she made, as most humans, especially public figures, do.
But look at the bright side, you have new fodder for renewed Hillary hating. Yay!
True. The ability of the human mind to rationalize whatever it wants to believe is incredible - there is little doubt that will convince thousands of here total innocence, that she is to blame for nothing at all.
If, that is, those that would believe are also literate - hard to believe but it's probably true.
I don't know PP. I'm not in the habit of not admitting a mistake. I would say a good percentage of people are willing to own up to their failings. Of course, we will present (at times) a list of extenuating circumstances which contributed to our folly but we do admit that we either made poor choices or were simply in the wrong.
I am not chomping at the bit to buy her newest book. It was her stubbornness and dismissal of Sanders and his supporters while hopelessly wasting our political capital trying to suck up to Republicans, that lost Progressives the election. So, enter Donald Trump.
I can dispute every single point that she made that your provided in excerpts.
What disappoints me the most is that she still hasn't figured all of this out yet....
I'm not part of the "fawning masses" but I do have a morbid interest in reading this book. I won't buy it, though, I will wait till it turns up at my local library.
(Public Service Announcement: support your local libraries, kids!)
I won't even glance at that rectangular holder of total BS.
She should have kept quiet and dignified and let the Russian investigation blame Russia and Trump, and Bernie.
This was probably her last chance to run so I guess she's rationalizing,as others have stated. ...

He came close to pushing Hillary out - either because of white male misogyny that seems to still be an issue; or because they actually wanted free...
