Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton reveals in her new book that Barack Obama’s team asked her to attack Alaska Governor Sarah Palin after Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) chose her as his running mate in the 2008 presidential race.

“[The Obama camp] immediately issued a dismissive statement and reached out to me in hopes I would follow suit,” she wrote. “But I wouldn’t.”…

“I was not going to attack Palin just for being a woman appealing for support from other women,” she wrote. “I didn’t think it made political sense, and it didn’t feel right. So I said no.”
