Could Tell-All End Hillary's Presidential Plans?
Senator Hillary Clinton is the early Democratic front-runner for the 2008 presidential race -- but an explosive new book could derail her capitol dreams.
"Extra's" own Gotham Gossip, Ben Widdicombe,
columnist for The Daily News, gave us the inside word
on the tome that could topple the contender.
"It's going to be all about what happened behind
closed doors during the Monica Lewinsky scandal,"
Widdicombe revealed to us. "Although it's a political
biography, it's also going to be very personal and,
friends of Hillary believe, quite damaging."
Tentatively titled "The Truth About Hillary,"
the book reportedly deals with Hillary's sometimes-troubled
marriage, and accuses Clinton of viciously attacking
the women who accused her husband of sexual advances.
The book is due out in late summer, leaving the Clintons plenty of time for damage control.
As for Hillary, she just cut a soft and cuddly Public
Service Announcement in which she uses Sesame Street
characters to talk about healthy eating for children.
Meanwhile, at a recent event, former president Clinton
took time to present a warm picture of his family life,
saying, "We try to really have the weekends together,
so it's worked out all right. I'm proud of her. I think
she's done a good job down there."
But after this book comes out, the American people will
have to decide for themselves just how good of a job
Hillary has done and whether she deserves a chance to
take on the highest job in the land.
