Heather Hill, February 2015. Trade Paperback. Used - Very Good. Item #242989
What makes a winner? How do you change public opinion and the course of a nation? Sex, money, power; the Clinton-ization of American politics.Capitol Hillary shows how the Clintons used emotional and persuasive techniques found in religious conversion and national movements similar to brainwashing, to convert the nation.This book explains how Bill Clinton, an obscure governor of a small state, plagued by scandal that had ended other political careers, pushed forward against inestimable odds to defeat George H. W. Bush, the most popular president in polling history and bring the Reagan Revolution crashing down, marking its end.Will anyone remember what happened in the 1992 presidential election campaign? "Read my lips." "I didn't inhale." "I'm not sittin' here as some little woman standin' by my man." "I could have stayed home and baked cookies and had teas." "I feel your pain." "None of us is a stranger to sin and weakness." It was the most significant, and yet bizarre, campaign in modern history.Capitol Hillary chronicles what happened as the campaign unfolded, how it was won and lost, and its implications for the nation, that still affect us to today. It takes a unique look at how candidates change public opinion, so people will vote for them. This is a must read for anyone who wants to run for office, work on a campaign, or vote. It can be a guide to how elections are won and how they are lost. Over twenty years after we were first introduced to Bill and Hillary, we are facing the prospect of history repeating itself. Capitol Hillary re-lives their introduction to national politics to remind us.Because, those who forget the past are destined to re-elect it.
