Published 2005 by the Penguin Group. NYC, NY 10014
Happened to run into this great former NY Times best seller and it is more pertinent than ever — with Hillary, Obama’s Secretary of State, about to shoulder the blame for Obama’s blunders in the Benghazigate, Libya tragedy and the on-going presidential cover-up)
Quotes below all from the jacket of the book, which is a great read.
The truth about Hillary is more frightening than you can imagine. For more than a decade, countless journalists and biographers have struggled to pin down the character of Hillary Rodham Clinton. Yet despite all the scrutiny, no one — until now — has explained her many contradictions and deceptions.
She’s a wife, but she shows no wifely instincts.
She’s a mother, but she isn’t maternal.
She’s a feminist, but she rode to power on her husband’s coattails.
She’s strong and assertive, but she has abetted decades of chronic infidelity.
She inspires fierce loyalty among her followers, but she frequently stabs them in the back.
In this controversial and eagerly anticipated book, distinguished journalist Edward Klein produces secret documents and stunning evidence from sources close to Hillary Clinton to show just how much she has been willing to lie, bully, cheat, and manipulate people in her quest for power.
Klein reveals a pattern of chronic bad behavior during a decades long effort to become America’s first woman president, no matter what the cost. The Truth About Hillary contains shocking new accounts of key moments in Hillary’s private and political life, giving readers a rare opportunity to assess the true character behind her public mask.
Among the many eye-opening revelations:
• How the culture of lesbianism at Wellesley College shaped Hillary’s politics.
• How she acted as a secret partisan agent of Ted Kennedy’s during the Nixon impeachment.
• How she set up an elaborate system to monitor her husband’s girlfriends.
• What she really knew early on about Monica Lewinsky and hid from the country.
• How her image makeover as a moderate senator is a sham.
Americans know that when it comes to political leadership, character counts far more than any policy position or speech. And as they begin to size up Hillary Clinton’s fitness for the highest office in the land, they will turn to Edward Klein for the truth that Hillary Clinton doesn’t want the public to know.
One former Hillary campaign worker had the following to relate:
“She is the most unbelievable actress I have ever met, said a woman who worked on Hillary’s Senate campaign. “I remember one time at a women’s leadership forum event in New York, 30 of us sat around Hillary talking about politics. And she said, “You know, I love this organization, not just because we sit around and talk about politics, but, because of the bonds of friendship forming around us. The way she said it, people were riveted by her performance. But, I had gotten to know her and I could tell she didn’t mean it. She has this unbelievable ability to be a liar. She is soulless.”
EDWARD KLEIN is the author of The Kennedy Curse; Farewell, Jackie; and several other New York Times bestsellers. He is also the former foreign editor of News-week and former editor in chief of The New York Times Magazine. He is a frequent contributor to Parade magazine and Vanity Fair.

His latest biography, The Amateur, is certainly a must read, especially with the election upon us. The book was just reviewed here in Israel Commentary, http://Israel-commentary.org/?p=4570.
