Hillary Clinton News Today: Belles-Lettres

Hillary news today includes her book deal.

By Michael Falcone | ABC OTUS News – 2 hrs 35 mins ago

Hillary Clinton has inked a book deal with Simon & Schuster to write a wide-ranging book that the publisher says will cover "dramatic moments" from her tenure as secretary of state, "frame her thoughts about the recent history of U.S. foreign policy and the urgent, ongoing need for American leadership in a changing world."

The book, which so far does not have a title, is tentatively scheduled to be published in June 2014 , according to The Associated Press.

But readers here knew that was coming. We did not have the specifics, and we still do not, but the more surprising news was this letter that came into my inbox 45 minutes ago.

Dear Still,
There hasn't been a presidential election in my lifetime when Democrats have been as united behind a potential candidate as we are today. The enthusiasm and hunger for a Hillary Clinton Presidency is unlike anything I've ever seen.

So I'm not going to waste my time writing you about how great Hillary is or how formidable she'd be -- you know it already.
But it isn't worth squat to have the fastest car at the racetrack if there ain't any gas in the tank -- and that's why the work that Ready for Hillary is doing is absolutely critical.  We need to convert the hunger that's out there for Hillary's candidacy into a real grassroots organization.

Hillary had to give up all of her political organizing activities when she became Secretary of State. That means it’s up to us to build this thing from the ground up.

The fact of the matter is that political campaigns have changed. The Obama campaign connected with people in ways that had never been done before in American politics -- and one of the things that made it possible was that they never stopped organizing after 2008.
Over four full years, they amassed an unbelievable grassroots network -- and used tools like Facebook to mine data and make sure that if they had an undecided voter in the Marine Corps, there’d be a retired sergeant on the phone asking for his vote.

We owe it to Hillary to start putting the building blocks of her campaign together now. The modern political campaign demands it.

Thanks so much for your support,
