Hillary Rodham Clinton and Chelsea Clinton, in New Orleans, discuss 'gutsiness and resilience' in new book


Louisiana was not kind to Hillary Rodham Clinton on election night 2016. She won only 38.4% of the state’s vote as she failed to become the country’s first female president.

But Clinton received a rapturous response Saturday when she and her daughter Chelsea spoke at a sold-out event at St. Charles Avenue Baptist Church in New Orleans about “The Book of Gutsy Women — Favorite Stories of Courage and Resilience.”

The 450-page book by both mother and daughter profiles more than 100 women, in politics (Shirley Chisholm and Ann Richards), athletics (Abby Wambach and Venus and Serena Williams), medicine (Florence Nightingale and Clara Barton) and other fields, including Ruby Bridges, who integrated an all-white elementary school in New Orleans in 1960.

1. Hey, nola.com, HIllary did not (fail) "to become the country's first female president".

I remember that she won the popular vote and her "loss" was due to a corrupt election process and the ratfuckers that supported tRUMP. Your weasel words won't change that reality. disclaimer: I went to the
nola.com website to leave a comment but I don't feel like providing them with my personal information.
