Summary
  • "Why does she stay with him? Where does she go from here? The author who revealed a generation's Passages now answers all the questions about the most talked-about First Lady in American history. In Hillary's Choice, Hillary Clinton is rendered fully human for the first time. Here is the life of a woman that is also the story of a marriage--and the drama of a presidency. From her childhood with a demanding father and frustrated mother to her life as a professional wife determined to elect her husband president ... from the sexual betrayals that nearly broke her to the national scandal that remade her ... this is the epic journey of a modern American woman, a saga that begins in passivity, moves through self-punishment, and ends in power. Who was the one "other woman" who posed a serious threat to their marriage? What was the real reason for the health care failure? How did Hillary escape the snare of Kenneth Starr? How has she managed, through it all, to be a good mother? No matter what her future, the mysteries about Hillary Clinton's past have been fully resolved by Hillary's Choice, a stunning achievement from a master chronicler of our times."--Publisher's website
