Hillary Clinton’s Hard Choices


Guests: Lissa Muscatine, Lara Brown, Jennifer Rubin

The former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is in Philadelphia this week, promoting her new memoir, Hard Choices.  The book tackles questions over Clinton’s vote for the Iraq war, and her handling of the Benghazi attack as Secretary of State.  It closes by posing yet another question: whether the former New York Senator and First Lady will run for President in 2016.  We review Secretary Clinton’s time in the State Department, analyze her memoir, and assess a possible Presidential run.  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 University’s Graduate School of Political Management and author of Jockeying for the American Presidency: The Political Opportunism of Aspirants; and JENNIFER RUBIN, the Washington Post’s Right Turn blogger.
