Disclaimer: I've loathed the Clintons from the get-go.

Do I respect Dick Morris? Not much. Does he offer us new information here? Not much. Is the book worth reading? Yes.

Why? Because the author has been behind-the-scenes with the Clintons; he's seen her without The Mask (What-you-see-is-what-you-get with Bill, although that changes in a kaleidescopic manner). The Clinton apologistas - I consider them stark raving mad, but that's their perspective - are a lost cause. I'd urge readers who feel they are open-minded on the subject of the Clintons to read this book, and Ed Klein's. It should be obvious that, while many politicians will say anything to get ahead, Hillary leaves the rest eating her dust. Both books also do a good job outlining her pattern of sheer greed as well.

I'm not a huge fan of Morris, but he has some unique and scary insights into the Clinton Machine. This info. should give Democrats and Republicans alike pause.

Now, for the first time, Fox News political analyst and former Clinton adviser Dick Morris turns his sharp-eyed gaze on Hillary, the lontime first lady, current New york senator, and bestselling author. For, as he argues, no politician in America today is better aligned to become president in 2008--and none would bring more baggage to the White House--than Mrs. Clinton.

In Rewrtign Historym Morris draws on his own long working relationship with the Clintons, as well as his trademark deep research and candid, nonpartisan analysis, to create a rebuttal to Hillary's bestselling autobiography, Living History. Morris documents how Hillary hides her true self behind a "HILLARY" brand that is chatty, charming, giggly and warm--but is far from her true personality.

In Rewriting History, Morris pierces the mask to get at the ttruth behind the distortions and omissions of Hillary's memoir. Here we meet the real Hillary, both good an bad: the manager who makes the trains run on time, but also the paramoid who sees all those who disagree with her as persoal enemies; the idealist, but also the "advice addict" easily misled by the guru of the moment. Morris describes Hillary's sense of entitlement, and warns that it may lead deep into financial scanda. And he demostrates how Hillary dodges criticism by pretending that every attack is directed not just at her, but at every working woman in America.

Ultimately, Morris argues, the Hillary Clinton of today is marketing a false front, obscuring both her warts and her assts behind the phony facade of a domestic Everywoman. But as she purseus higher office, she also faces a choice. Will she, like Bobby Kennedy, see the erroro of her ruthless ways, and embrace the sincere idealism she professes? Or, like Richard Nixon, will she allowthe darker angels of her nature to overcome her, jeopardizing herself and the country in the process?

As Rewriting History suggests, we can only hope that Hillary Clinton's past performance is no guarantee of future results.
