147. ok you hooked me
read the reviews of the book on amazon I will buy the book tomorrow...none of the purchase price will go to the Clintons or their campaign.

Some of the reviews were very well written, this one is for the LU (pun intended) the op:

What also becomes clear is that destiny (pardon the New Age-ism here) brought Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham together. It is highly unlikely that Bill Clinton, given his many compulsions and personal demons, would ever become President without steady and reassuring "adult supervision" from Hillary. And while Hillary would likely be an important player in the public arena, she does not appear to have that "IT" factor that would propel her (in elective politics, arguably) beyond a congressional seat; had she not gotten all the exposure through the marriage to Bill Clinton. The book is as much a biography of a woman, as a biography of loving and yet always turbulent, hurricane of a marriage.

Gallary God, do you have a website with some of your digital images...and also will have to check out the Liza story....another casualty of the sexual predator....Ms Clintons loving husband :puke:
