12 September 2017 - Hillary Clinton's New Memoir, "What Happened"

Clinton looks for rewind button in ‘What Happened’
Amie Parnes (The Hill, 11/09/2017)

In “What Happened,” her chronicle of a surprisingly unsuccessful presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton repeatedly wishes she could hit the rewind button on 2016.

Clinton, the former Democratic presidential nominee, time and again expresses pangs of regret about her loss to Republican Donald Trump.

And she hits herself for not being more aggressive in attacking the hypocrisy and double standards she feels she endured from the media, Republicans and even some Democrats who have criticized what they call a lackluster campaign.

War on Truth
 
Hillary Clinton's new memoir compares Trump's 'war on truth' to Orwell's 1984
Sabrina Siddiqui and David Smith (The Guardian, 12/09/2017)
 
Hillary Clinton uses her new memoir to draw parallels between Donald Trump’s “war on truth” and the Soviet Union and George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four.

“Attempting to define reality is a core feature of authoritarianism,” the defeated presidential candidate writes in What Happened, published on Tuesday. “This is what the Soviets did when they erased political dissidents from historical photos.

Mistakes

The mistake Hillary makes in diagnosing her biggest mistake of 2016
Chris Cillizza (CNN, 11/09/2017)
 
Jane Pauley asked Hillary Clinton a simple question during a sitdown on CBS' "Sunday Morning": Were there mistakes she made that led to her loss in the 2016 presidential race? Clinton's response was telling.

"I think the -- the most important of the mistakes I made was using personal email," Clinton acknowledged. "I've said it before, I'll say it again, that was my responsibility. It was presented in such a really negative way, and I never could get out from under it. And it never stopped."

She's (sort of) right. There's no question that the decision -- during Clinton's early days at the State Department -- to exclusively use a private email address/server was a massive mistake.
