    would definitely sell better, and that is my worry.

    But I think any memoir would do reasonably well, given that the author and the fact that it could be released pre-2016 when there will be a lot of buzz about whether Clinton will run or not.  

    •  Hillary's careful by nature, (3+ / 0-)

      so I don't think that's anything to worry about too much (unless she's seriously done with politics).

      On the flip side, if she runs in '16, I'd love to see her take more chances, shake things up a bit. In other words: Not simply run as the frontrunner, as she did last time. She needs to stay fresh and relevant.

    •  I don't think she's in it for the money... (2+ / 0-)

      I think this book is more for the villagers who will surely read it, and to her ardent supporters to give them the ammo to really sell her FP credentials.  It doesn't need to be a best seller, and it doesn't need to be controversial.  

      She lied about Tuzla -  people lie about things that they are self-conscious/insecure about.  Pres Obama choosing her as his SOS allowed her to fill that hole in her resume - so even if she decided not to run, she'd know that she would have FP qualifications second to none this time around.  

      If you're not talking about what billionaire hedgefund bankster Peter G. Peterson is up to you're having the wrong conversations.
