RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 128236371 LA English T1 A woman in charge : the life of Hillary Rodham Clinton A1 Bernstein, Carl,, PB Alfred A. Knopf PP New York YR 2007 SN 9780375407666 0375407669 AB Carl Bernstein's portrait of Hillary Rodham Clinton shows the true trajectory of her life and career, with its bursts of risks taken and safety sought--a detailed, sophisticated account of the complex political meteor who has helped define one president and may well become another. We see the shaping of Hillary as a self-described "mind conservative and heart liberal"--Her ostensibly idyllic Midwestern girlhood; her early development of deep religious feelings; her curiosity fueled by dedicated teachers, by the ferment of the sixties, and, above all, by a desire to change the world. At Wellesley Hillary thrives, already perceived as a spokeswoman for her generation. At Yale Law School she meets Bill Clinton and ties her fortune to his. Bernstein clarifies the dynamic of their marriage, shows us the extent to which Hillary has been instrumental in Bill Clinton's triumphs and troubles, and sheds light on her own political brilliance and her blind spots.--From publisher description.
