'Shattered,' a campaign tell-all fueled by anonymous sources, outlines a generational political disaster. By Matt Taibbi.
I'm number 90 on the hold list at my local library, which sucks, but anyways this book just seems like a blueprint for how never to run a campaign. My take from watching it all unfold was she didn't think she needed a reason, she was a Clinton, an insider to the party and it was her turn after she took a backseat to Obama. The same way Obama took the SUPERdelegates in 2008 she took them in 2016 and became the candidate nobody thought could lose against Donald all while watching her avoid reporters, not really answer questions and give stiff speeches all while her team refused to campaign in "safe" states that turned out not to be safe... it was all just mind boggling.
So essentially this is just a well documented account of a significant political train wreck. Got it.
