If you could sum up The Destruction of Hillary Clinton in three words, what would they be?
Painful, Accurate, Timely
What other book might you compare The Destruction of Hillary Clinton to and why?
The Handmaid's Tale is a good comparable read because it is the future, past and present for many women living in the United States and the "destruction" that we saw has far reaching implications for those who don't fit into one societal norm of gendered behavior. .
Any additional comments?
This was a great listen, although very difficult to re-visit. I appreciated Bordo's careful analysis and Huber's mispronunciation of "Sarandon." It is not an easy book because it reaffirms that many of us do not have any hope and that in my lifetime, we will not see any progressive president elected by the US. I hope one day Sanders' supporters will try to understand that you cannot just promise free tuition and it will happen; that Sanders' invoked old leftists tactics to divide women from "real progressive issues" and to imply white women are the establishment (without recognizing that these women are also battered, killed, subjected to violence and harassment, and no recourse in the courts if raped. The book is sad and sobering and also terrifying.

I really enjoyed this book, mostly from the view point from a woman almost my age. I have felt everyone of these situation that happened to Hillary in my adult business life. Women rights and equality is a fight we are still battling though it might have a different face and tactic even from those who believe they are progressive. We have to continue educating those individuals who do not understand, if by want or ignorance.
Thank you for writing this book.
