New Hillary memoir to be titled “Hard Choices”?

posted at 10:01 am on April 18, 2014 by Ed Morrissey

I suppose Hillary Clinton probably couldn’t use What Difference At This Point Does It Make Anyway as a book title, but Hard Choices seems just as fraught. Simon & Schuster announced the new title in a press release today, republished by Daniel Halper at the Weekly Standard:

“HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON’S INSIDE ACCOUNT OF THE CRISES, CHOICES, AND CHALLENGES SHE FACED DURING HER FOUR YEARS AS AMERICA’S 67TH SECRETARY OF STATE, AND HOW THOSE EXPERIENCES DRIVE HER VIEW OF THE FUTURE,” reads a description of the book by the publisher.

“All of us face hard choices in our lives,” Hillary Rodham Clinton writes at the start of this personal chronicle of years at the center of world events. “Life is about making these choices, and how we handle them shapes the people we become.” In the aftermath of her 2008 presidential run, she expected to return to representing New York in the United States Senate. To her surprise, her former rival for the Democratic Party nomination, newly elected President Barack Obama, asked her to serve in his administration as Secretary of State. This memoir is the story of the four extraordinary and historic years that followed, and the hard choices that she and her colleagues confronted. Secretary Clinton and President Obama had to decide how to repair fractured alliances, wind down two wars, and address a global financial crisis. They faced a rising competitor in China, growing threats from Iran and North Korea, and revolutions across the Middle East. Along the way, they grappled with some of the toughest dilemmas of US foreign policy, especially the decision to send Americans into harm’s way, from Afghanistan to Libya to the hunt for Osama bin Laden.

By the end of her tenure, Secretary Clinton had visited 112 countries, traveled nearly one million miles, and gained a truly global perspective on many of the major trends reshaping the landscape of the twenty-first century, from economic inequality to climate change to revolutions in energy, communications, and health. Drawing on conversations with numerous leaders and experts, Secretary Clinton offers her views on what it will take for the United States to compete and thrive in an interdependent world. She makes a passionate case for human rights and the full participation in society of women , youth, and LGBT people. An astute eyewitness to decades of social change, she distinguishes the trendlines from the headlines and describes the progress occurring throughout the world, day after day.

Secretary Clinton’s descriptions of diplomatic conversations at the highest levels offer readers a master class in international relations, as does her analysis of how we can best use “smart power” to deliver security and prosperity in a rapidly changing world—one in which America remains the indispensable nation.

Apparently, neither Clinton nor Simon & Schuster did much research into book titles. First, it sounds a lot like Decision Points, George W. Bush’s semi-memoir of his presidency, which came out in November 2010. It’s very close to John McCain’s Hard Call from 2007, which isn’t a memoir but rather a recounting of difficult decisions by world leaders, meant to burnish his own leadership merits ahead of his presidential run.

But perhaps even worse, the title Hard Choices has already been used in the foreign-policy memoir context — from an administration with which this White House wants to avoid comparisons. Cyrus Vance, who was Jimmy Carter’s Secretary of State when the Iranians captured the American embassy in Tehran and kept diplomatic personnel as hostages for 444 days, wrote Hard Choices: Critical Years In America’s Foreign Policy in 1983. It’s out of print now, but I’d bet that the publisher could scare up a copy or two.

The publisher? Er … Simon & Schuster.

So we’re getting a retread title for a Secretary of State and administration whose foreign policies were themselves retreads of the Carter administration. Perhaps that’s appropriate, but it still  leaves the question of just what these hard choices were. Not approving more security for a consulate in the middle of a failed state, and then ducking responsibility for that hard choice? Trading a missile-shield defense system in eastern Europe in exchange for selling commercial jets to Russia and saving face in Shanghai? Which style of reset button to give Sergei Lavrov? We’ll see in June when the tome hits the bookstores.

Update: National Journal’s Matt Berman noticed it too, but says it’s forgivable in the larger context of the “ridiculous exercise” of political-campaign books:

In 1983, Cyrus Vance, who served as secretary of State in the Carter administration from 1977 to 1980, released his memoir about his own years in office: Hard Choices: Critical Years in America’s Foreign Policy. The book doesn’t appear to be widely read now (if Amazon is any guide), but when it was published, it was praised by Foreign Affairs as a “highly rewarding” read “for the serious observer,” and hailed as a “remarkable picture of the diverse problems and strains with which an American secretary of State must cope today.” Which sounds, at least in part, like what Clinton is going for with her new book.

Hillary Clinton can be forgiven for the repeat. The basic nature of political-memoir titles is just to be as vague, unoffensive, and bland as possible. The golden rule, best explored in the third-season premiere of HBO’s Veep, is to say absolutely nothing while suggesting absolutely everything. It is, in short, a perfectly ridiculous exercise.

I’m not sure which of us caught it first — the comment times at NJ suggest I did, but either way it’s close — but I am surprised that so few caught it at all.

New Hillary memoir to be titled “Hard Choices”?

Hard choices like should I admit to having no foreign policy credentials, or make up a story about running from sniper fire with my daughter? Should I tell the truth that my incompetence got 4 Americans killed or blame a YouTube video instead? Vodka or bourbon? Hard Choices indeed.

These people at S and S should not be editors. Any editor worth his or her salt should know the difference between hard and difficult.

many of the major trends reshaping the landscape of the twenty-first century, from economic inequality to climate change to revolutions in energy, communications, and health. Drawing on conversations with numerous leaders and experts, Secretary Clinton offers her views on what it will take for the United States to compete and thrive in an interdependent world. She makes a passionate case for human rights and the full participation in society of women , youth, and LGBT people. An astute eyewitness to decades of social change, she distinguishes the trendlines from the headlines and describes the progress occurring throughout the world, day after day

…and, oddly, no mention of economic policy. Inequality…but no policy. Full participation of women, youth, lgbt, ..apparently those are all mutually exclusive traits…much like women and minorities.

Ugh.

“HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON’S INSIDE ACCOUNT OF THE CRISES, CHOICES, AND CHALLENGES SHE FACED DURING HER FOUR YEARS AS AMERICA’S 67TH SECRETARY OF STATE,

Given her record, this had better be a book about deciding if she wanted another pillow or not as she spent four years on a continual world tour. Because otherwise it will all be lies. She never successfully faced a crisis, her choices were all wrong (charging stations for electric cars in Vienna but no added security for the Benghazi consulate, for example), and we see the results of the challenges she faced as the Middle East burns and Russia is expanding its empire by military force.

Cripes, I sit back and remember fondly now when Carter was in office.

Sure, this was back when NYC was a morally, financially, (and a lesser extent) bankrupt Outhouse that was less than a year & mayoral term away from being Detroit: The Early Years. But it was only a reflection of the crap the whole nation was going through.

You’d be surprised how many older Low-IQ Democrats want to travel back in time-they are still absolutely convinced that the 8 years of Slick were a magical golden era, even though his was a pResidency About Nothing, just like the hit TV show that ran during the same time frame.

They totally ignore the fact that his pResidency had absolutely no significant accomplishments (see Democrat historian Richard Goodwin’s scathing essay in the Boston Globe on July 4, 1999, where he called Slick’s tenure a total failure). And they also totally ignore the fact that he left his successor the deadliest attacks on US soil in American history. For some reason, they can forgive him for that.

Bill and Hillary Clinton should be in prison for crimes against humanity for what they did to their fellow citizens at Waco, TX, on April 19, 1993. The Waco Massacre and church burning (it was not a “compound,” it was their church),was the most brutal, heinous violation of civil, human and Constitutional rights in this nation’s history. Innocent men, women and children were attacked with tanks, poison gas (CS gas turns to cyanide when heated) and burned alive. Those who ran from the church were machine-gunned as documented in the movie “Waco, The Rules of Engagement.” If you doubt how bad this was consider that you never hear the left stream media talk about it. They want it erased from history but this memorial site will remain forever:
www . wizardsofaz . com/waco/waco2 . html
And if that weren’t bad enough, Clinton’s thugs then stuck a machine gun in the face of a 5 year old boy and sent him to the communist gulag known as Cuba: www . therealcuba . com/elian_gonzalez . htm
Let’s hope Clinton isn’t teaching President Prompter too many of his old tricks!
Here is a list of the children murdered at Waco:
Lisa Martin 13, Sheila Martin, Jr. 15, Rachel Sylvia 12, Hollywood Sylvia 1,
Joseph Martinez 8, Abigail Martinez 11, Crystal Martinez 3 Isaiah Martinez 4
Audrey Martinez 13, Melissa Morrison 6, Chanel Andrade 1, Cyrus Koresh 8

Wow, smells like Open Reg Teen Spirit in here. HillAREWe, is that you?

Please tell us what her “qualifications” were to be the Junior Senator from New York, and then we’ll move up the food chain from there.

(Heads out back to start another sundial)

Hillary Clinton bundler pleads guilty to illegal contributions

A prominent New York hotel magnate who was a top bundler for then-Sen. Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign pled guilty in federal court Thursday to making more than $180,000 in illegal campaign contributions and to witness tampering.

Sant Chatwal, 70, admitted using employees and vendors for his hotels as straw donors to avoid limits dictated by campaign finance law. Investigators also recorded Chatwal telling an associate not to admit that donations were reimbursed, court papers say.

-snip-

Court papers don’t identify the recipients of Chatwal’s illegal largesse by name, but indicate it dated back at least to 2007. A source familiar with the investigation told POLITICO the unlawful donations were delivered to Clinton’s 2008 campaign, as well as to Rep. Kendrick Meek’s 2010 Senate campaign in Florida and to a campaign by former Sen. Chris Dodd, who served as head of the Senate India Caucus.

THE BIGGER THEY ARE

Column: Hillary Falls to Earth

Hillary Clinton may end up deciding she wants to spend the 935 days until election 2016 making corporate speeches and spoiling her grandchild. Recent events have exposed weaknesses in Clinton’s supposedly impregnable armor, gaps through which a Democratic or Republican challenger could damage, perhaps even defeat her. The bad headlines to which she has been subjected are enough to make anyone—anyone who isn’t a Clinton—think twice about running for president….”

Just read the article. Unfortunately the author makes a fatal and incorrect assumption:

Far too many reporters, in both the mainstream and the conservative media, have a professional incentive in fact-checking Clinton.

He then goes on to claim that after the NY Times published a whitewash story covering up for Hillary’s incompetence in the Benghazi fiasco, their story was “deconstructed” by “experts and Senate investigators.”

But what he fails to mention is that the NY Times never retracted their whitewash, and never corrected it.

In fact, the Democrat Media is heavily invested in Hillary for 2016.
