The Extreme Makeover of Hillary (Rodham) Clinton

Hardback
Buchanan, former U.S. treasurer and sister of former presidential nominee Pat Buchanan, takes Hillary Clinton to task in this unapologetically partisan biography. Buchanan outlines how Clinton's personality and character changed after she was elected to the Senate, casting mock sympathy as she goes: It must be a terrible thing to be as deeply insecure as Hillary. It has made her so incredibly susceptible to the ideas of others. Subsequent chapters criticize the senator's positions on hot-button issues, including healthcare, same-sex partnerships and the war in Iraq. Though Buchanan backs up many of her points with outside scholarship and Clinton's own interviews and records (both as senator and student), claims that Clinton accepts no responsibility and disregards even the most basic standards of behavior make this a sermon for the choir.
