Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices
June 12, 2014
Guests: Lissa Muscatine, Lara Brown, Jennifer Rubin
The former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Philadelphia this week, promoting her new memoir,Â Hard Choices.Â The book tackles questions over Clintonâ€™s vote for the Iraq war, and her handling of the Benghazi attack as Secretary of State.Â It closes by posing yet another question: whether the former New York Senator and First Lady will run for President in 2016. Â We review Secretary Clintonâ€™s time in the State Department, analyze her memoir, and assess a possible Presidential run.Â Guest host Mary Cummings-Jordan talks to: LISSA MUSCATINE, a longtime speechwriter, senior advisor and friend to Hillary Clinton, most recently serving as Chief of Speechwriting at the State Department; LARA BROWN, Program Director at George Washington Universityâ€™s Graduate School of Political Management and author ofÂ Jockeying for the American Presidency: The Political Opportunism of Aspirants; and JENNIFER RUBIN, the Washington Postâ€™s Right Turn blogger.
