4-0 out of 5 stars A Fair Look
I read this book.As a young person just beginning to vote, I like what I read here and found Clinton to be an intelligent and educated person.I have not been able to find anything written by our current president that compares, but I am still looking.It is easy to see when a republican writes one of these reviews about a democratic author because they don't seem to know how to acknowledge intelligence!But this is an intelligently written book, on it's own merit and I recommend it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Most interesting in retrospect.
Although I voted for Bill Clinton twice for President, it was only recently that I happened to read this agenda-setting book from his 1992 campaign. It's astonishing at this late date to see how successful Mr.Clinton has been in turning his long-ago ideas into legislative reality.Yes, he has had some failures over his two terms (especially his failure toreform America's health care system on a large scale--he's had to makechanges since in more piecemeal fashion). But the majority of the promiseshe made in 1992, he has since fulfilled. One of the most telling results ofreading this book now, is to see how Mr. Clinton, like other politicians,has found that some of the things he thought of as black-and-white issues(such as civil rights problems in China) turn out to be much more complexonce you approach them from inside the Oval Office. Despite hateful attackson him from conservatives, President Clinton has turned out to be one ofthe most fair-minded and energetic presidents we've ever had. I guess Iwould have realized that from the first, if I'd only read this politicalroadmap back in '92.

1-0 out of 5 stars Pure Drivel
Anyone who can read would not be fooled by the pandering garbage in this book. Anyone who would be fooled by it probably can't read. Thus, who would possibly buy this book?

1-0 out of 5 stars Clinton's vision ofhow he should run your life
This candy-coated pap (sorry for the mixed metaphor) of Clinton's perscriptions for how he should run our lives deserves a re-read, if for no other reason than to refresh one's memory of the vacuity and hypocrisy it contains.One small example: page 8 talks about those evil Reaganites who made "paper profits" in the 1980s.Clinton fails to mention his own paper profits from the bribe, er cattle futures trading, that he received in the 1970s and 1980s.That this man was reelected is a testment to the moral and intellectual limpness of the American people and also to wiliness of a man who I may be disgusted with, but have to admire for his sheer stamina. ...

Product Description
Responding to the release of Clinton’s long-awaited memoir, Bob Barr (the man behind the so-called "vast right wing conspiracy") shares his judgment on the Clinton legacy. His new book, The Meaning Of Is: The Squandered Impeachment And Wasted Legacy Of William Jefferson Clinton, clearly highlights the shocking depth of corruption that characterized Clinton’s administration. Proving his reputation as Clinton’s worst nightmare, Barr reveals previously unknown details of the impeachment process; describing how its scope was artificially limited and its progress politically undermined by both Democrats and Republicans. Published by Stroud & Hall Publishers, the book is expected to be available in bookstores in August 2004.

Barr writes, "Looking back on the Clinton administration from the perspective of someone who was personally involved in investigating basically every public corruption case raised against Clinton, I am most amazed that the Monica Lewinsky case is ultimately what got the president impeached.This is not to say that lying under oath and obstructing justice are not impeachable charges or that the remedy we chose was inappropriate.However, these charges pale in comparison to the systematic damage Bill Clinton did to American national security, the office of the presidency, and the civil liberties of individual American citizens."

The Meaning Of Is provides a starkly contrasting viewpoint on the record of the Clinton administration than found in President Clinton’s new book. These two books promise to ignite a fresh debate on the real legacy of the Clinton administration.

Barr writes, "Bill Clinton will go down in history as a failed president, because he had the intelligence and opportunity required for greatness, but suffered from fundamental character flaws… There is no core to Bill Clinton, no principle he will not sell out, no lie he will not tell, no rule he will not break, if he believes doing so will best serve his immediate interests."

5-0 out of 5 stars The Meaning Of Is: The Squandered Impeachment and Wasted Legacy of William Jefferson Clinton
This is a great eye opening book in to how the impeachment of Clinton should have removed him for office because of his criminal activities in the areas of sellling out our national security to China, repeatedly violating American citizens civil liberties and repeated stonewalling of investagators of his criminal activities (Monica Lewensky was only a minor thing in the grand scheme of things). He explains how the impeachment process was hampered by both Dems and Republicans who were more interested in not rocking the boat so they can keep getting easyly reelected (Don't stop the gravy train). He is not a partisan hatchet man but a man of principle that recently said in reply to a question on the campaign trail as the 2008 Libertarian Party candidate for President that if he had to choose nither George W Bush or Bill Clinton to be president he would have to take Clinton. This from a man who was the lead man on the impeachment of Clinton and who served Reagan and was a 8 year Republican Congressmen. Also check out this book on our lost liberties A Nation Of Sheep By Judge Andrew P. Napolitano!

1-0 out of 5 stars Total Display of Hatred
Bob Barr is obsessed with the hatred of the Clinton's. We can disagree on issues but not on personalty. President Bill Clinton despite everything will be recorded in history as the only American President that ever created over 22 million new jobs. He presided over the best US Economy in history. A man of peace with very high intelligent quotient perhaps in the history of US presidency with most powerful and persuasive speech.

Bill Clinton made America a country everybody all over the world wanted to associate with during his presidency. The first US President toreceive a standing ovation at United Nations general assembly. Over 2 million people waited in line to greet Bill Clinton in Ghana during his visit to Africa.

Bill Clinton is still loved all over the world. He is a man who love life and women. He appointed women as judges to US courts a friend of the African Americans and the poor whose government almost wiped away welfare andunemploymentfrom America. Despite his shortcomings as a human being Bill Clinton was the best President US ever had after JFK. Bill Clinton said "let us not be offended about our critics because they bring out the best in us". Even to his enemies he was generous in words, in all his books, he never destroy even his critics he always has something good to say about everybody.

Bob and his fellow right wing writers most of them say they are Christians may want to destroy Bill Clinton legacy over his honesty that related only to his personal life in which most of them "Republicans" were equally guilty if not worse off. Clinton in his work as President was honest with the poor, honest with social security, honest with world like David in the Bible who God so loved that he said "I could have destroyed Israel but for my love for David" Clinton dishonesty never led to the death of 3000 US soldiers in any war.

5-0 out of 5 stars A MUST READ
I KNEW before reading this book that Mr. Clinton was a President we would NOT call great, and never call honest... I was so floored that an IMPEACHED president could remain in office as he did, thoroughly thumbing his NOSE at ALL of us Americans who he was TRUSTED to serve.Bob Barr, sure lays it on the line , tells the truth, kindly, but truthfully.Everyone should really read this book, even if you have your own ideas about Clinton, this is an EYE opener for those who think he was a "great" president.

5-0 out of 5 stars Tell it like it is
Bob Barr has written an excellent book.Using clean, spare language he gets his points across and builds a convincing case.He uses specific images and anecdotes that are sometimes funny, sometimes disturbing and always work to their best effect and stay with you.In a highly readable fashion, Bob Barr also gives you a good understanding of how things work in Washington, D.C.If you want a better understanding of how government works, if you care about National Security, if you care about the future of America, I strongly recommend this book.I was walking in lower Manhattan this morning and I stopped by to look at historic Fraunces Tavern and to remember where a different kind of terrorist group set off an explosion and injured and killed innocent people almost 30 years ago.I found it chilling to read in Mr. Barr's fine book that the Clintons didn't seem to have a problem offering clemency to members of this terrorist group during Mr. Clinton's final days in office.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ground Zero, Clinton Impeachment...
Meaning of Is...
House Resolution, 5 Nov 1997 (Familiar Date, Barr's Birthday)

Scholarly, bare knuckled honesty, dead serious with a flair for well timed, subtle, and outright humor. On the road to Impeachment, unlike a Mike Moore documentary!

Superb intellectual honesty and analysis. Evenhanded criticism of Democrat and Republicanleadership alike. Down home, home-spin candor. Insider renegade who takes the moral and principled high ground to the next level. Genuine, open, and frank delivery of a defining moment in our Nation's history. A true patriot, sharing with us the inside and behind the scenes of this epic American saga and political tragedy--- the squandering of a presidency; deliberate national security breech; and intentional unraveling of our God given constitutional rights as American citizens.

Readers confused by years of conflicting information would like nothing better than to have the Clinton scandals spelled out for them. How better to do this than by presenting the issues in the context of an impeachment trial--a "political science fiction" that projects what could happen, based on the facts we already know? This book does just that, dramatizing the events, using real-life characters appearing under their own names. ... Read more

Tyrrell must be a Democrat plant among the lunatic right.He writes this hilarious suicide scenario for the Republican party--Impeach the President!--and the fools actually follow it.Only, the Barrbarians andHydethesalami don't build their case on Tyrrell's long, paranoid list ofcrimes and/or sins committed by that bad boy and Antichrist, Bill Clinton(now called William Jefferson Clinton to dignify his accusers).Why, theycan't even catch the Evil One with his hand in the cookie jar.But they docatch him with his thing in an airhead, and by God, that's good enough forthem!Off to trial they go with a case spun from whole cloth andfustian--mostly fustian--out of sex, sort of.Thus does the party ofLincoln, already descended to being the party of Nixon, morph into the BlowJob Party.Last one to leave turn out the lights.Neat book.

Product Description
Politics and Religion:It is an inspired letter to President Clinton. It shares the authors travels in Arkansas with his friends and relatives, it speaks about our American heritage and it is also a reference book that includes The Constitution, The Declaration of Independence plus documents, songs, letters, etc

It addresses issues that most politicians and members of the media avoid, making this book an eyeopener to the reader concerning what is going on in Washington, D.C. with the "powers that be".

The irony of this, is that Shenandoah is a resident of the conservative camp. Controversial, to say the least!

For the last several years April Shenandoah has researched and gathered material pertinent to the "changing times" we live in.

By invitation, Shenandoah delivered the first copy to President Clinton at the White House February 4th.

This first-run, hardcover of So...Help Me God! is considered a "Collectors Edition" It is hand numbered and signed.. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A life changing reading experience!
I consider myself a well informed citizen, and yet when I read So...Help me God, I was amazed and deeply greived to see how far our country has strayed from its wonderful beginning.The authors research on the smallestdetail of our true American history was very enlightening.It was not justthe sad scenerio of Pres. Clinton but the revelation ofthe real moraldecline of our country. Some of the questions that she asked in her letterto Mr. Clinton, were questions thatmany Americans would like to ask. Ialso felt a deep compassion for our President when I realized how far, heto has strayed from his conservative Christian beginnings.It seemsobvious that somewhere he violated his own core values.I was very angeredat President Clinton when I read this book. But after reading it, eventhough the author exposed even more than I already knew, I felt compassionfor him. I also love having our Constitution, Declaration of Independanceand all the other American documents included in this book. I am sorry toadmit that I have not read these since High School. I consider thisbook to not only be excellent reading, but it is wonderful reference bookthat I will always have in my personal Library.

Editorial Review

Product Description

The journalist who co-wrote the original article breaking the Monica Lewinsky scandal for the Washington Post reveals the complete story behind the headlines: a riveting, in-depth account of an event unique in American history -- the first impeachment of an elected president.

"For all of the titillation about thongs and cigars, the story of the impeachment and trial of William Jefferson Clinton was not so much about sex as it was about power. It may have started with an unseemly rendezvous near the Oval Office, but it mushroomed into the Washington battle of a generation, ultimately dragging in all three branches of government....

"Clinton opened his second term vowing to bring the parties together, to become the 'repairer of the breach.' But the last half of the presidency demonstrated that the breach was wider than anyone had anticipated."

-- from the Prologue

With unprecedented access to all the players -- major and minor -- Washington Post reporter Peter Baker reconstructs the compelling drama that gripped the nation for six critical months: the impeachment and trial of William Jefferson Clinton. The Breach vividly depicts the mind-boggling political and legal events as they unfolded, a day-by-day and sometimes hour-by-hour account beginning August 17, 1998, the night of the president's grand-jury testimony and his disastrous speech to the nation, through the House impeachment hearings and the Senate trial, ending on February 12, 1999, the day of his acquittal. Using 350 original interviews, confidential investigation files, diaries, and tape recordings, Baker goes behind the scenes and packs the book with newsworthy revelations -- the infighting among the president's advisers, the pressure among Democrats to call for Clinton's resignation, the secret back-channel negotiations between the White House and Congress, a tour of the War Room set up by Tom DeLay to force Clinton out of office, the agonizing of various members of Congress, the anxiety of lawmakers who feared the exposure of their own sex lives, and Hillary Clinton's learning that her husband would admit his affair with Monica Lewinsky.

The Breach is contemporary history at its best -- shocking, revealing, and consequential. It is a tale of how Washington became lost in "the breach" of its own partisan impulses. All of this, and much more, makes The Breach one of the most important and illuminating volumes of history and contemporary politics of our generation.Amazon.com Review
In case you missed "our long national nightmare" the first time around, or have recovered from the stunning deluge of coverage and pundit-babble inflicted upon the nation, or if you're just hazy on some of the details, The Breach is for you. Peter Baker, a longtime reporter for the Washington Post, covered the White House from 1996 to1999. He has used his experience and access to write the ultimate Beltway book about the six-month saga of the impeachment and trial of President Clinton, from the unfortunate, verb-parsing grand jury testimony of August 1998 to the Senate acquittal in February 1999.

The Breach is a refreshing departure from the daily onslaught of revelations, spin, and commentary that characterized the affair as it unfolded; it's a rigorously researched and extremely detailed account of what happened. Some of the information is new, even shocking, and often depressing. But mostly it's a reminder of how savage and surreal the whole thing was, with adulterers accusing adulterers and the fate of the Executive held to ransom. In a tale of rampant male ego, it is the old feminist saw "the personal is political" that perhaps best encapsulates the experience. Though The Breach is detailed, compiled from hundreds of interviews, investigation files, diaries, and recordings, it lacks that numbing quality the contemporary coverage had. This is inside baseball, written for C-SPAN geeks, Beltway bandits--wannabe or actual--and curious citizens alike. Perhaps the highest praise for such an endeavor is that even after all the hype, this book still manages to be a page-turner. --J. Riches ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A fascinating tour of the sausage factory
There's an old gag:laws are like sausages - you really don't want to know how they're made.

Here, in the run-up to the 2008 presidential elections, this book is still a worthy read - and not just because of the potential for the Clintons to find themselves back in the White House.

Breach makes clear some very important points.First, it becomes evident that the frequent bitter charges of 'partisanship' made during the run-up to the impeachment were purely tactical - and driven by the White House.

The book is oddly comforting in several respects.First, it reveals how gut-wrenching members of both parties found the situation - and how seriously most involved took it.Contrary to public opinion, this episode actually wasn't a partisan food fight.The majority of Republicans are shown as being concerned primarily with the rule of law and the concept that the President cannot be above it.The majority of congressional Democrats viewed Clinton with extreme anger and disappointment - after all, he had lied to them as well.Indeed, the earliest threat to Clinton's presidency came not from Republicans but infuriated Democrats.Views softened as the tale wore on - and most congressional Democrats sincerely did not feel that the case rose to the level of 'High Crimes and Misdemeanors.'

That there were partisan attack dogs on both sides of the aisle is almost secondary to the fact that most members of Congress, regardless of party took the situation extremely seriously and agonized over it.

There are no heroes in this story. One might argue that there are really no villains, either - although if not a criminal (and that's certainly still open to debate) Bill Clinton certainly emerges as a self-obsessed cad of the first order.

The book is a little dry and extremely dense.Still, it's a fascinating look inside the machinations of Washington - and if it lacks for one thing, it's a better understanding of Hillary Clinton's role throughout.She's virtually invisible throughout most of the book.Given her latter-day national clout, one might wish to have a clearer view of her activities - although the idea that she would make a serious run at the White House herself was but a rumor at the time Breach was written.

5-0 out of 5 stars Page Turner
I don't know where the author got all of his insider material, but it is fascinating and ridiculously insightful. I could not put this book down, and began it with little interest. It was given to me by someone who accidentally bought two copies, and I am glad they did.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Breach Too Far
I am always a little hesitant to pick up a book on the impeachment or any troubles that Bill Clinton had because they are usually so partisan on one side of the story or the other.The number of books that try to stay in the middle and give a fair telling of the story is a somewhat limited group.This book has to be the gold standard for fair and impartial reporting.The author tells a story that is both infuriating and disappointing all at the same time.He does a good job of detailing out the sometime rabid prosecution of President Clinton and the rather slimy way the Democrats and Clinton got himself out of trouble.I kept looking for any bias on the authors part, especially when he was covering areas I did not feel too comfortable in reading and I just could not find any.

I have always enjoyed the way Bob Woodward tells a story with all the detail.The reason I bring it up is that this author comes close to the Woodward standard.I say comes close as he has not mastered the technique of impartial, detail soaked story telling with a touch of drama.The detail was here but it did get a bit dry at times.This is a minor point as the few parts of the book I felt were a bit slow were few and far between.The author also gives the reader a nice inside look at the process.Who did what and when. I enjoyed the detail as to what the members of Congress were doing and saying.Who would have thought some many Democrats were so upset and so many Republicans were on the fence as to if the trail was right.About the only area that put a smile on my face was the actions of the Chief Justice.From the yellow arm bands to the poker playing, it was all humorous and remarkably common activity.

The book ends with a small side story of who the only winner was in the whole mess.Hilary Clinton is about the only one who came through this process with something better.Even here the author stayed above the fray and gave us a straight telling of this briefly touched on topic.What I find ironic is that Bill Clinton wanted nothing more then a strong legacy and to be remembered positively in the history books.The impeachment trial grantees that an average President that would be relegated to the mediocre pile is forever going to be brought up in history as one of the few Presidents to be impeached primarily due to partisan politics.

5-0 out of 5 stars WELL DONE!
This is easily a five star book.A reviewer of David Schipper'sunsurprisingly one-sided and surprisingly naive book "Sell Out" recommended this book for a unbiased view of the impeachment and I echo that recommendation!

What was Mr. Baker's opinion or attitude about the impeachment process?I guess he was opposed to it.The key word in the previous sentence is "guess".My guess is based upon him being a journalist, a profession that is regrettably over populated with liberals and Democrats.His employment with the Washington Post (a.k.a. the Washington Pravda to many conservatives) further enforces my guess.However, it is just a guess because I do not recall anywhere in the book where Mr. Baker revealed his true attitude.He offered criticism to the Republican leadership as might be expected, but also criticized the Democratic leadership.Conversely, he also presented good reviews to both the Republican and and Democratic leaderships when it was called for.He even, in my opinion, sympathized at times for the poor House managers who were ridiculed and chastised for daring to take the case to the Senate when conviction was a virtual impossibility.

Mr. Baker explores how the Democrats were less than satisfied with Mr. Clinton's post-grand jury speech to the nation on 17 August 1998 and how they were seriously contemplating a trip to the White House to request a resignation.Of course, the mid-term elections offered a "reprieve" and from that point on the end result of his survival was pretty much a foregone conclusion.But his actions and unconvincing words of grief and apology to all concerned were not able to prevent the actual impeachment process from continuing.

I do wish Mr. Baker had waited until after Mr. Clinton left office before publishing the book.I would have been interesting to read his assessment of how the impeachment affected the 2000 campaign.But, on the flip side, his publishers might have felt it would be better to get the book out before impeachment faded completely into history and oblivion.

5-0 out of 5 stars fair and balanced, too bad clinton was involved
This is a very balanced view of the impeachment. The cards were laid out for Gingrinch and his difficulties, the Managers and the Senate. No one was demonized, but it is obvious that the former President Clinton is a spoiled sociopath that at some point is going to have to be dealt with. After what this book describes in detail the House vote and the Impeachment trial in the Senate, the Country was brought to a standstill on a matter that is so ridiculous, but was brought on by one silly man!With kind of distraction, it is no wonder that September 11 th happened. This book clearly brings the depth of a crisis in our government and how this dominated the agenda for a better part of almost a year and a half. The most stunning part of the book is the end, where the Author does not go into detail, but that Clinton could have generated another a scandal with the pardons after what happened in the Congress is incredible! Great book, read it in a weekend, and I am wiser for it. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent!
Only in America could someone make money with something like this (and unlike a liberal I mean that in a postive way!)I'm sure Monica and Bill would sue for a percentage of the profits, but it would mean acknowledgingtheir words . . . and the acts that went with them.

5-0 out of 5 stars Shakespeare, eat your heart out!!!
With verse such as this, I can throw away all my Ezra Pound.More rhyming would have been welcomed, however.

Also, I think it is important to thank the publisher for printing the book in such a small format.Mucheasier to hold with one hand.

5-0 out of 5 stars awesome
Can making money really be this easy?Why do I work 5 days a week?Either this author is a genius in the uniquely American fashion, or a complete burnout with too much time and dope on his hands.

What could be more serious than the politics that governs the nation? And what could be funnier than the type of cluelessness depicted in the trial that has stirred the nation's interest?

Product Description
'Clintonism' is not an idea, or a program; still less is it aprinciple. It represents what might be termed-were it not for itsmurk-the distilled essence of consensus politics. Unremarkable in itsconstituent elements, which are a mixture of opportunist statecraft,crony capitalism, 'divide and rule' identity politics, and populistmanipulation, Clintonism has nonetheless raised these ordinarypractices to the level of theory. It has succeeded, argues the author,because of a stealthy appeal to the waning and insecure forces of anAmerican liberalism gone bad. Christopher Hitchens followed GovernorClinton through New Hampshire in 1992, and has remained an assiduousstudent of his methods ever since. In No One Left to Lie To, he profilesthe rise and decline of some prominent Clintonoids, from GeorgeStephanopoulos to the First Lady. He scrutinizes the debased newlanguage in which the discourse of Clintonism has been couched, andproposes that, if successful, the Clinton machine will become themodel of pseudo-democracy for the coming century.Amazon.com Review
The most vocal critics of Bill Clinton's presidency tend to beconservatives--think, for example, of William J. Bennett's TheDeath of Outrage--but there are those on the Left who are fed upwith Clinton as well. Among them is journalist Christopher Hitchens(most prominently associated with The Nation and VanityFair), who has produced a slim but vehement volume outlining how"Clinton's private vileness meshes exactly with his brutal andopportunistic public style." No One Left to Lie To is the storyof a man who took the Democratic presidential nomination and,having achieved office, began enacting welfare reform and anticrimelegislation that surpassed the ambitions of all but the mostideologically loyal Republicans--and routinely plundered the GOPplatform for other policy ideas as well.

Hitchens is particularly damning on Clinton's tendency to resort todivisive racial politics when it suits his purposes, as when, in thecourse of the 1992 presidential campaign, he refused to lift a fingerto save a mentally retarded African American from state execution sohe could appear tough on crime, then shortly afterwards hijacked aRainbow Coalition conference to criticize rap artist Sister Souljahfor the benefit of the attendant press. When he needs the black vote,though, Clinton will allow himself to be trumpeted as the mostracially sensitive president in American history--if not, in ToniMorrison's memorably ludicrous phrase, "our first black president."Furthermore, the man who once connived his way out of the draft hasbecome a chief executive so willing to use military air strikes as ameans of foreign policy that, in the author's view, the United Statesis now a "potential banana republic."

Of course, there is plenty of vitriol directed at Clinton's conductwith regard to Monica Lewinsky (the woman with whom he admitted, underduress, to having had an "inappropriate relationship" consisting ofmultiple incidences of oral sex) and Kathleen Willey (who alleges thatthe leader of the free world merely fondled her breasts and forced herto touch--albeit shielded under some layers of clothing--his tumescentpenis). In Hitchens's view, however, the sexual controversies are onlythe most prominent aspect of Clinton's shameful character, a moralcondition that must be considered in toto. The book is short, with anargument that runs only about a hundred pages, but that's still morethan enough room for Hitchens to serve up a comprehensive, blisteringindictment suffused throughout by his dark wit. He sums up the failureof those fixated on Clinton's adultery to fully investigate his cronyism andfinancial shenanigans: "It's not the lipstick traces, stupid,"Hitchens warns, "it's the Revlon Connection." --Ron Hogan ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Intellectual Honesty
Hitchens' main concern in this book is to demonstrate that the Left has lost its intellectual honesty. If, in fact, the Left was willing to aid and abet a charismatic self-serving demagogue, then what else could they stoop to?
While Hitchens did, in fact, work at the Nation, they sacked him because he was constantly trying to hold the Nation to an intellectual standard that they blatantly discarded going into the buildup for the last DNC sweep of the Whitehouse and Congress.

To understand the modern DNC, you need to read Hitchens. Once you see how it went under Clinton, then you suddenly understand why the current administration shielded Fanny Mae and Big Pharma rather than pursue real economic and healthcare reform.

Clinton was a corporatist. The parallels to the current administration are more than just coincidence. It's the modern DNC political blueprint.

By the way, corporate socialism is, by definition, Fascism. And a devout Communist like Hitchens knows it for what it is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Disassembling of an icon.
Like many people I liked Bill Clinton, because he had a good onscreen presence, was personable and seemed to be a good president. I have never met the man so it will take more than Hitchens' book to sway me. Irregardless the book makes me take things into consideration I had dismissed previously. When a political pundit like Rush Limbaugh, whom I mention only because he made a career out of Clinton, rails against his chosen nemesis and our president, it carries little weight. Rush commands about as much respect in this department as David Duke would have of accusing Jesse Jackson of embezzlement.
Christopher Hitchens on the other hand has data to back up his reports and seems to deal more in fact than opinion. I wish that there were more journalist like Christopher Hitchens and fewer political pundits as Limbaugh, Coulter, Beck the list goes on. I think Hitchens has maintained one constant in that he cannot be pigeonholed and is an ever evolving author and personality. He takes risks and has the intellegence the back up his opinions.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent As Always
Hitchens is probably my favorite writer. He is pithy, sarcastic, and occasionally venomous. He very quickly dissects the Clintons' duplicity and methodically exposes them for the criminals they are. I think I read the book in a couple of sittings, certainly no more than a weekend. I could barely put it down and would have burned a sick day to finish it; it was that good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Why Is This The Best Clinton-Bash Book?
Because it is written with clear restraint, where others had none. It is written with savvy, care, and a great attention for the truth. I read this little book in like 3/4 hours. It is extremely well-written.

Rather than dwell on seedy gossip, Christopher uses strong investigative journalism with easy intuition. He exposes what is obvious, but what otheres are apparently blind to. He exposes a clearly unworthy insect, revealing where it covets, decieves, writhes, abuses, and muses.

I never realized it before - and I am no republican - but Bill is probably like 75% of what all of his detractors claim.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Must Read
Hitchens analyzes the Clinton Presidency in a way that the Liberal media has refused to do. Every Democrat should read it for revelations about ways in which he let them down.Hitchens points out that Clinton actually preferred the Republican Congress after they regained control of Congress. In the 2008 election, those considering a vote for Hillary should read this first. ... Read more
