And in that role, argues longtime political strategist Susan Estrich, no candidate even approaches the power and promise of Hillary Rodham Clinton, the Senator from New York. She is, by far, not only the most popular Democratic leader in the country, but also one of its most popular and admired politicians, period. Both a passionate spokesperson for progressive values and a strong advocate for our troops overseas, she has used her time in the Senate to establish herself successfully as a genuine political powerhouse. There is no candidate whose election would bring such vitality and lasting change into the White House. And she offers Americans a once-in-a-lifetime chance to break the world's most prominent glass ceiling and elect a female President of the United States.
In an atmosphere where conservative Hillary-bashing is still as virulent as ever, Estrich demonstrates all the reasons that this principled leader still blows away any other potential contender in the early polls for 2008. And, with arguments both stirring and sensible, she reminds us that if Hillary should succeed, America and the world would be changed forever and for the better.

"The most convincing, and most entertaining, argument for Hillary yet." (Publishers Weekly)
The book was an interesting read but a bit too "pro-Hillary" to take seriously. A more balanced argument would be more convincing to middle of the road political junkies like me. The left will believe everything in the book while the right will simply dismiss it as Democratic Hillary hype.
I consider myself an Independent. But just like "Commander and Chief" is a pro-Hillary TV series designed to acclimate Americans to idea of a women (Hillary) as president, this book is an obviously one-sided attempt at doing the same thing. It's easy to make a case for anything when you spin the truth and omit critical facts. Unfortunately that's what has been done here.
This is just another one sided book buy a LIBERAL writer. If you smart enough to make your own decisions and you want to hear both sides of the story; don't waist your time on this book.
