& Taylor

A Time magazine photographer showcases more than 150 photos of Hillary Clinton—including her efforts on behalf of health care, her tenure as first lady, her years on Capitol Hill, her trailblazing run for the presidency and all the way up through her 2013 press conference as secretary of state in Kabul with Hamid Karzai. 50,000 first printing.

Simon and Schuster
Rich full-color and stirring black-and-white photographs tell the story of Hillary Rodham Clinton’s political life on stage and behind the scenes—from one of the world’s most famous photojournalists—most published here for the first time.

Diana Walker saw and photographed Hillary Clinton in 1976, and again in 1979. But she truly began to record Hillary’s life in pictures beginning in 1993, from her efforts on behalf of health care, her press conference concerning the cattle futures, right through her tenure as First Lady, as a Senate candidate, her years on the Hill, her trailblazing run for the Presidency, up through her tough, smart press conference in Kabul in 2013 with Hamid Karzai.

Through it all, Walker has had a front row seat. As a photographer for Time magazine, she has had unprecedented access to Hillary’s life behind closed doors, capturing the range of Hillary’s emotions and experiences and the many layers of her character. The photos she took at this time are a unique archive of images that paint a revealing and remarkable portrait. From Hillary’s early days as First Lady to her time as Secretary of State, Walker was there to preserve the dramatic Washington moments, all the way to the iconic time in the military cargo plane when Hillary sat in dark glasses concentrating on her Blackberry. Hillary allows you to share her journey and come closer to comprehending the woman behind this extraordinary public life.

Showcasing more than 150 high-resolution photographs, in both full-color and black-and-white, Hillary features an introduction by bestselling author Walter Isaacson and an epilogue by Diana Walker describing her years at Hillary’s side during so many momentous and personal events.

[UPDATE #2: Just learned that Hillary appointed the founding member of PNAC to be an advisor to the State Department - - that's Project for a New American Century, the ultra-neocon bunch.

[UPDATE: Hillary Clinton has just personally attacked Sen. Bernie Sanders on his remarks in 1974 suggesting the CIA should be shut down! Imagine suggesting that when the Church Committee uncovered countless murders by the CIA - - of innocents here and abroad - - during their MK ULTRA program! Fortunately, the vice chair of the DNC just resigned and endorsed Bernie {Rep. Tulsi Gabbard}.]
I admit to constantly being confused about HRC. The other night, during interviews, she praised democracy in Libya, yet I thought her and her husband were anti-democracy in Libya as, after all, the Clinton Administration did extreme rendition Libyan pro-democracy activists who had fled that country, kidnapping and flying them back to be tortured by Gaddafi's henchmen? [Bush would later do the same regarding Egypt and pro-democracy activists from there!]
Does she mean that the al Qaeda which she and the Obama Administration supported in Libya, was pro-democracy?
This is all very confusing, I thought al Qaeda, which is supported in Syria and was supported in Libya, until they refused to sell back their weapons in that attempted CIA buyback program in Benghazzi - - where al Qaeda kept their weapons, stole the CIA funds, and destroyed the CIA station there - - was supposed to be an enemy in their War on Terror?
All too confusing for this Real Progressive . . .
