Contents:
"Or I wouldn't have run" -- The mercenaries and the missionaries -- Feeling the Bern -- The summer of the server -- The Biden threat -- Mrs. October -- "I was certain we were going to lose" -- The prize and the pain -- Base politics -- Turning the corner -- Canary in the auto plant -- Damage -- "Too easy" -- "Hillary just can't make up her mind" -- But it looked great -- "It's so phony" -- "Demeanor is the debate" -- Red October -- Comey -- "I'm sorry" -- The aftermath.
Scope and content: "It was never supposed to be this close. And of course she was supposed to win. How Hillary Clinton lost the 2016 election to Donald Trump is the tragic story of a sure thing gone off the rails. For every James Comey revelation or hindsight acknowledgment about the electorate, no explanation of defeat can begin with anything other than the core problem of Clinton's campaign--the candidate herself. Through deep access to insiders from the top to the bottom of the campaign, political writers Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes have reconstructed the key decisions and unseized opportunities, the well-intentioned misfires and the hidden thorns that turned a winnable contest into a devastating loss. Drawing on the authors' deep knowledge of Clinton from their previous book, the acclaimed biography HRC, Shattered offers an object lesson in how Clinton herself made victory an uphill battle, how her difficulty articulating a vision irreparably hobbled her impact with voters, and how the campaign failed to internalize the lessons of populist fury from the hard-fought primary against Bernie Sanders. Moving blow-by-blow from the campaign's difficult birth through the bewildering terror of election night, Shattered tells an unforgettable story with urgent lessons both political and personal, filled with revelations that will change the way readers understand just what happened to America on November 8, 2016"--Provided by publisher.
