I love Cristopher Hitchens but I was disappointed by this book. This is not a journalism. This is an uninterrupted flow of hatred. Hatred that doesn't stop with Clinton but spills over to all around him. All the points made in the book notwithstanding - and it's scary if even some of them are true - I can't consider it seriously. It's just one-sided to the extreme. ( )

I was a big Clinton supporter. A person who said, I didn't care what he did with his private life as long as he did a good job as President. Yeah, I wished he was less military than he was. Yeah, I wished he hadn't supported DOMA or kowtowed to the military about gays in it, or given up on universal health care, but he was still the best president since Jimmy Carter, and I was proud of the way he boosted the economy. I thought he was generally a pretty good guy.

This book ruined him for me a bit. I still think all those things, but now I know he wasn't really a good guy. He's a rapist, plain and simple. It doesn't negate his accomplishments, or make me wish he'd never been president at all, but it does keep me from wanting to hang up a picture of him in my home that I used to think I would hang up eventually.
