Overview

Weekly Standard editor Daniel Halper provides a meticulously researched account of the brilliant calculations, secret deals, and occasionally treacherous maneuverings that led to the Clintons’ return to political prominence.

In the twelve years since the Clintons left the White House, they have gone from being virtually penniless to multi-millionaires, and are arguably the most popular politicians in America—respected and feared by Republicans and Democrats alike. But behind that rise is a never-before-told story of strategic cleverness, reckless gambles, and an unquenchable thirst for political power.

Investigative reporter Daniel Halper uses a wealth of research, exclusive documents, and detailed interviews with close friends, allies, and enemies of the Clintons to reveal the strategy they used and the deals they made to turn their political fortunes around. Clinton, Inc. exposes the relationship between President Obama, the Bush family, and the Clintons—and what it means for the future; how Bill and Hillary are laying the groundwork for the upcoming presidential campaign; how Vice President Biden and other Democrats are trying to maneuver around her; Chelsea’ s political future; the Clintons’ skillful media management; the Clintons’ marriage and why it has survived; and an inside look at the Clinton’s financial backers and hidden corporate enterprises.

Clinton, Inc. is the key to understanding America’s most powerful political couple.

Editorial Reviews

William Kristol
“The Clintons reside at the peak of the American power elite. Halper explains, in riveting detail, how they got there and how they stay there. But Halper hasn’t just produced a must-read. He’s also opened an important—and disturbing—window into the current state of American politics and society.”
Tucker Carlson
“Daniel Halper is a such a good reporter, I’ve tried to hire him three times. Few people in Washington have better sources or a sharper eye for detail. Halper gets the story every time and, trust me, there’s a story here.”
Rich Lowry
“If you think you know all there is to know about the Clintons, Daniel Halper proves you wrong. Read this highly informative, appropriately excoriating book about the once and perhaps-future First Couple—and consider yourself warned.”
Hugh Hewitt
“The ‘Must Buy’ Book of the Summer.”
Lloyd Grove
“Halper’s study is juicy and gossipy, yet scrupulously researched, drawing on numerous on-the-record conversations (as well as many not-for-attribution interviews) with prominent Democrats and Clinton insiders, past and present.”

I was not impressed with the book. It was disjointed, and lacked organization and a theme. The best I got out of it is that it was a recap of what we already knew about the Clintons and served nothing more than a ntshell version of a history lesson over the past 14 years. There were times when I thought the author was critical of Hillary Clinton and other times when I thought he was her biggest supporter. It was difficult to determine where he stood on the issue of Hillary and her presidential aspirations. It was clear that he is not fond of Chelsea. Nevertheless, it did not meet my expectations and I would not recommend it.
