Description
Weekly Standard editor Daniel Halper provides a meticulously researched account of the brilliant calculations, secret deals, and occasionally treacherous maneuverings that led to the Clintons' return to political prominence and to Hillary's once-unlikely position as the 2016 frontrunner for the White HouseIn the thirteen years since the Clintons left the White House, they have gone from being virtually penniless to multimillionaires and are arguably the most popular politicians in America--respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike. But behind that rise is a never-before-told story of strategic cleverness, reckless gambles, and an unquenchable thirst for political power.Investigative reporter Daniel Halper uses a wealth of research, exclusive documents, and detailed interviews with close friends, allies, and enemies of the Clintons to reveal the strategy they used and the deals they made to turn their political fortunes around. Clinton, Inc. exposes the relationship between Obama, the Bush family, and the Clintons--and what it means for the 2016 election; how Bill and Hillary are laying the groundwork for the upcoming presidential campaign; how Vice President Biden and other Democrats are trying to maneuver around her; Chelsea's political future; the Clintons' skillful media management; the Clintons' marriage and why it has survived; and an inside look at the Clintons' financial backers and hidden corporate enterprises.Clinton, Inc. will be the key to understanding America's most powerful political couple as they stand poised to reclaim the White House, with revelations that just might impact the presidential race.

display_description In 2001, Bill and Hillary Clinton left the White House under a cloud, dogged by scandals and investigations. Even many Democrats were glad to see them go. Yet within just a few years Bill had secured a new reputation as a global humanitarian and elder statesman, and Hillary was running for president. Despite her 2008 loss to Barack Obama, Hillary bounced back to become a powerful and respected figure in his cabinet. Today the Clintons are among the most popular politicians in America--respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike. Their transformation has been so complete that it takes an effort to recall just how low their fortunes were a decade ago. None of this happened by accident. Behind the Clintons' remarkable comeback is an untold story of strategic calculation, backroom deals, reckless gambles, and an unquenchable thirst for wealth and power. Here, Weekly Standard reporter Daniel Halper compiles a wealth of research, exclusive documents, and candid interviews with friends, allies, and former enemies of the Clintons to reveal how they rebuilt their reputations, reconstructed their political machine, and positioned themselves for even greater success. Halper describes in intimate detail how the Bill and Hillary partnership works; provides new insights into their deals and friendships; and a comprehensive Republican effort to bring their ambitions to a halt.--From publisher description.
