There's also a lot of Obama hysteria in this book, because it was written before the election. Still a worthwhile read.

Now, for the first time, Fox News political analyst and former Clinton adviser Dick Morris turns his sharp-eyed gaze on Hillary, the longtime First Lady, current New York senator, and bestselling author. In Now, for the first time, Fox News political analyst and former Clinton adviser Dick Morris turns his sharp-eyed gaze on Hillary, the longtime First Lady, current New York senator, and bestselling author.
In Rewriting History, Morris draws on his own long working relationship with the Clintons, as well as his trademark deep research and candid, nonpartisan analysis, to create a rebuttal to Hillary's bestselling autobiography, Living History. Morris documents how Hillary hides her true self behind a "Hillary" brand that is chatty, charming, giggly, and warm—but is far from her true personality. In Rewriting History, Morris pierces the mask to get at the truth behind the distortions and omissions of Hillary's memoir.
Here we meet the real Hillary, both good and bad: the manager who makes the trains run on time, but also the paranoid who sees all those who disagree with her as personal enemies; the idealist, but also the "advice addict" easily misled by the guru of the moment. Morris describes Hillary's sense of entitlement, and warns that it may lead deep into financial scandal.
And he demonstrates how Hillary dodges criticism by pretending that every attack is directed not just at her, but at every working woman in America. Ultimately, Morris argues, the Hillary Clinton of today is marketing a false front, obscuring both her wants and her assets behind the phony facade of a domestic Everywoman.
But as she pursues higher office, she also faces a choice. Will she, like Bobby Kennedy, see the error of her ruthless ways, and embrace the sincere idealism she professes? Or, like Richard Nixon, will she allow the darker angels of her nature to overcome her, jeopardizing herself and the country in the process?

It's from such a close position her political consultant that I won't give it 5 stars. Because the author being part and particle of the "works" from Arkansas and into the latter Bill Clinton presidency- I discern that the base information and the voice and "eyes" of the author himself to be "relative" to a facade of disingenuous behavior, as well. Others feel this makes Dick Morris the encyclopedia of Hillary, but I think it holds piles of baggage in itself.
He does know the details of minuti It's from such a close position her political consultant that I won't give it 5 stars. He does know the details of minutia place, times, purpose.
I have loathed her personality traits of assumptions from early, early days- so this was little surprise to me.
But having the real history in particulars here from Dick Morris detailed as opposed to her "Living History" written "facts"? And yet how hard she tries, I'm sure that is actual and eternal. As is her greed and her duplicity to "facade" profile for the moment being constantly applied and quickly too- she is a genus at this for "explanations".
Redefining her roadblocks or opposition as not only wrong or bad but having base in an evil morality. It's practice in her role model of this "evil other" belief is now common. That's become her main legacy in progressive development, IMHO. As the progressive movement learned well from her examples of positing in this way as often as she does herself. No other opinion being allowed as it is "evil" to not agree with the "we think" redefined terms being one of victim, historic, or identity politics.
The Nixon personality comparisons to "eyes" in this book was 5 star outstanding. So different from a Bill Clinton or JFK who could float opinions like waves in the sea- taking on new forms or directions at will in a "fellow well met and liked too" congeniality that leaves the majority in civil discourse or a good will intent ocean. This is the best psychological description profile of Hillary's core perceptions that I've ever read.
She was never going to adopt a baby. Nor did she ever clean out closets during the Paula Jones court case. On and on and on. And she has always, as long as I remember any speaking or apart from being "the couple" pose speech- consistently disdained "the others" or some generic deplorable "enemies list" to assault in generality. Or at times very specifically too.
But this is the best book on her core flaws and "eyes" superior attributes. And her will power and ability to morph. They have not changed since she was dark and curly haired with thick black glasses and no makeup. View all 5 comments. Aug 19, John rated it liked it Shelves: bio-and-memoir , politics. Disclaimer: I've loathed the Clintons from the get-go. Do I respect Dick Morris?
Not much. Does he offer us new information here? Is the book worth reading? Because the author has been behind-the-scenes with the Clintons; he's seen her without The Mask What-you-see-is-what-you-get with Bill, although that changes in a kaleidescopic manner. The Clinton apologistas - I consider them stark raving mad, but that's their perspective - are a lost cause. I'd urge readers who feel t Disclaimer: I've loathed the Clintons from the get-go. I'd urge readers who feel they are open-minded on the subject of the Clintons to read this book, and Ed Klein's.
It should be obvious that, while many politicians will say anything to get ahead, Hillary leaves the rest eating her dust. Both books also do a good job outlining her pattern of sheer greed as well.
Aug 03, Precia rated it really liked it Shelves: politics , clinton. Dick Morris was a very close advisor to the Clintons and therefore, I think his characterizations and accounts of their actions and behavior are quite reliable. What he writes about her personality and way of conducting herself seems as applicable to a run as it did back in the early 's. While she is a very smart and disciplined person in many ways, the Dick Morris was a very close advisor to the Clintons and therefore, I think his characterizations and accounts of their actions and behavior are quite reliable.
While she is a very smart and disciplined person in many ways, there is a sense of entitlement and unwillingness to be truthful that remains relevant in her actions today. The email scandal is a perfect example. Sep 20, Roy W. Morris was a political consultant who worked with the Clintons starting back in Arkansas and continuing into the Clinton presidency.
If you have the idea that Hillary has never been proven to have done anything wrong, this book will clear up your misconception. From the Whitewater land deal to managing the "bimbo eruptions," Hillary has been utterly determined to gain power at any price, and no doubt feels the end justifies the means.
Morris has a new book, "Armageddon," written for the campaign. Mar 01, Steph rated it it was ok. So I'm probably voting third party this year. The thing that bugged me, though, is I can't tell if Dick Morris is a credible source, given that he was fired by the Clintons. I also can't tell if he was comparing HRC to Nixon out of spite, or if it was an apt comparison because they both think they are above the law. I don't have a solid answer yet, but it bugged me enough that I bought a book about the Nixon administration and plan to read it this year.
Edited to add: The other thing that bothers me about women in power, like HRC, is their downplaying of how smart and cut-throat they are because these aren't "publicly accepted" virtues of women. And that drives me up the wall. I think that's dangerous on both sides of the aisle. Feb 21, Brandon rated it really liked it. It was like reading Hillary's biography and then finding out the truth without actually having to read the lies first.

Who won the 4th Democratic Debate? A good read, as long as you take it with a grain of salt. Morris has written extensively about the Clintons see below and also contributed to Hillary: The Movie , a documentary about Rodham Clinton when she was still a Presidential candidate.

Review of The New Prince () — Foreword Reviews
Arthur M. Schlesinger taught past presidents an important lesson: If you want escapees from your administration to write glowing memoirs or how-to books for aspiring politicians about you, make sure to get assassinated. Richard Morris. His ship sank, though, when he was ingloriously exposed for amorously engaging the feet of a prostitute, and was shown the door by the tut-tutting Clinton.
He also wrote this book, the true value of which gives us a glimpse into the scrupulously convoluted thinking of a highly paid political consultant in the dying days of the twentieth century. It is a book that is easy on the eyes and well worth reading. To say the book is a well written, lovingly crafted book, though, is to miss the point. In the world of pollsters, focus groups and post-modernist political theorizing, words can stand on their heads.
A lack of forthrightness can come across as lyrical truth telling. What Mr. Morris seems to be saying that the days of the Big Idea are gone, and that his work with Clinton proved the worth of Thinking Small. He advocates similar behavior to aspirants to public office in the future. Watch it: They may write a book. Disclosure: This article is not an endorsement, but a review.
