Trending, "What Happened", New Release Book by Hillary Clinton


     
What Happened
                           

What Happened by Hillary Clinton will soon be hitting the bookstores on Sept. 12, 2017, a day after the US remembers the Sept. 11 attack on the World Trade Center during the Bush era.

I started with this as right after the World Trade Center attacks and President George W. Bush launch the Iraq invasion, then Senator Hillary Clinton was  one of those that approve the Iraq invasion and war  - Years after her work as Secretary of State under the Obama administration was very prominent and colorful defining her political fate as stateswoman in foreign diplomacy. With this came part of the major hurdles in her presidential bid leading to her defeat to incumbent President Donald Trump for the thousands of leak emails using her personal email server for state email communications. Her approval of the Iraq war was one of the repeated propaganda's against her even as democratic party nominee until being the official democratic party presidential candidate in 2016.

History will write Hillary as the first woman in the US to be a standard bearer of a major party as presidential candidate. In her new forthcoming book, she  describes what it was like to run against Donald Trump, the mistakes she made, how she has coped with a shocking and devastating loss, and how she found the strength to pick herself back up afterward. With humor and candor, she tells readers what it took to get back on her feet—the rituals, relationships, and reading that got her through, and what the experience has taught her about life. She speaks about the challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye, the criticism over her voice, age, and appearance, and the double standard confronting women in politics.

 Hillary takes you inside the intense personal experience of becoming the first woman nominated for president by a major party in an election marked by rage, sexism, exhilarating highs and infuriating lows, stranger-than-fiction twists, Russian interference, and an opponent who broke all the rules. This is her most personal memoir yet. In the last few months, speculations and speculations, threads and threads of feeds on social media talked about how she lost and why as well as if she is going to make a comeback.

In the few years then I was sort of involved with political affairs during my time as as an APEC Youth leader what I've seen so far is that Mrs. Clinton has outlived any presidential candidate in history of presidential candidates as she was able to come back and make another run for the presidency in 2016 after losing in 2008 to then Senator Obama. She was able to make the comeback as she had the popularity, she and her husband has the army of followers and supporters and she did not really had a lot of questionable past scandals and moreover she was an effective Junior Senator form New York which initially people had reservations when she made the run for Senator after being First Lady. The last part is that she has the professional merit as Lawyer and her enduring work then for the healthcare initiatives as First Lady leading to the Affordable Care Act.

She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

With that in mind, the reality is presidential candidates normally retire from the lime light and embrace being a private citizen after a defeat. Hence, which is why I mentioned Hillary was unprecedented making a second run for the presidency. Yet, it is done, she will be in another end of being an observer and private citizen but she will indeed have a big section when the history books are written as the first woman as a major party presidential candidate which of course will defined her political life from being First Lady, Senator and then Secretary of State.

 She lays out how the 2016 election was marked by an unprecedented assault on our democracy by a foreign adversary. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how dangerous the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

So we should look forward on her more on being a pro-active political observer and being involved in preserving democracy in America.
