New excerpt from Jon Allen and Amie Parnes’ “Shattered”

FIRST IN PLAYBOOK — NEW EXCERPT FROM JON ALLEN AND AMIE PARNES’ “SHATTERED” — ‘That Was My Last Race’: “As Hillary thumbed through the pages, the [concession] speech struck her as tone-deaf. It’s too charged, she thought, too political. … ‘Look I really just want to concede gracefully, wish him the best thank everybody, and get off the stage … This is not a moment for me to do more than that.’

“Jake Sullivan, her chief strategist took the lead in defending the tone. ‘Everything you said, we’re going to do in this speech … But you have been saying for many months that he temperamentally unfit and that he would be dangerous, and, if you meant it, you should say it. And you made a case that all these people’s rights and safety are in danger—if you meant that, you should say it.’ ‘It’s not my job anymore to do this,’ she said, her voice growing more forceful … ‘Other people will criticize him. That’s their job. I have done it. I just lost, and that is that … That was my last race.’” The Michiko Kakutani review, “‘Shattered’ Charts Hillary Clinton’s Course Into the Iceberg” http://nyti.ms/2nXmaYu$17.43 on Amazon http://amzn.to/2pu0JhV Currently ranked No. 3 in all books on Amazon
