Hillary Clinton – Review of What Happened: Election Failure Memoir

What happened on the evening of November is marked in the history books and is known to everyone; a well prepared presidential candidate lost to Donald Trump.

This extraordinary memoir has flashes that suggest Hillary Rodham Clinton is well informed of all that happened. However, it sometimes descends like a mode of settling her blames.

Just like any good informative book, it starts at the end; the elections ended her dream and her career. She explores the whole experience of having failed spectacularly and publicly and how open the passage was.

There are touchingly intimate moments and dry whit at home. She explains how she managed to hunt down a specific wallpaper design to decorate their New York’s home bedroom to match the one they anticipated at the white house.

If the wallpaper came from the past political period, it almost feels like her campaign had the same origin.” I carried out a traditional presidential campaign while carefully planning the policies and building coalition painstakingly. On the other hand, Trump was busy running a TV show that relentlessly had expertly stoked the Americans resentment and anger,” she writes.

It was not only about Donald Trump. Clinton reserves some criticisms of her democratic nomination rivals and Bernie Sanders who proposed the bold ideas that would never have passed in the Congress. Mr. Trump is also responsible for the Wall Street line of attacks that was developed and plundered during the election period, she argues.

She narrates that the “optics” was the only wrong thing for taking more than a hundred dollars from the big reputable banks which had a hand in plunging the country into a recession. Hillary Clinton turned out to be a victim who seemed like a flawed candidate with uninspiring campaigns to the whole world.

Mr. Comey was responsible for the homebrew email servers probe that Hillary Clinton used when she was the state’s secretary. Just eleven days to elections, Comey announced that the investigations were going to be reopened which ensured there were a slew of drawback headlines during that crucial moment. “Although Comey caused few voters to change their minds, the mess was enough to move the Electoral College to Trump,” writes Hillary Clinton.

The impact may never be known, but I am glad to imagine the level of intervention it would have caused if she together with her media team had evaded the controversy, instead of avoiding the legitimate questions. The whole book talks about Clinton’s World Reminders: The billionaire friends and Hampton’s hobnobbers in the Dot Com world. She is an active woman when it comes to detailing sexism that has been plaguing her politics and caused many introspection bouts as she figured out how to manage the chromosome.

Ultimately, she analyses Mr. Trumps appeals to show her flaws. She dissects why she did not connect well with Rust Belt states; the primary factor of handling her rival’s election. She concludes by indicating that she did not lay the fault but was done by the arrayed actors that were against her. Perhaps, a better title for Mrs. Clinton’s Thesis would have been a new expression of verbal shrug that sometimes suggests terrible things happen for no reason.
