The Social and Political Evolution of the Clintons

Bill & Hillary: So This Is That Thing Called Love - Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince

Bill & Hillary: So This Is That Thing Called Love is both a biographical coverage of the Clintons and a political exposé; so readers interested in more than the Clintons' personal lives now have a detailed, weighty exploration that traces the couple's social and political evolution, from how each entered the political arena to their White House years under Bill Clinton's presidency.


One might expect a light survey from a biography, but Bill & Hillary is anything but: as much as it contains gossip, scandal, and biographical sketches, it also delves deeply into the news and politics of its times, presenting enough historical background to fully explore the underlying controversies affecting the Clinton family and their choices.


Sidebars of information and black and white photos liberally peppered throughout the account offer visual reinforcement to the exploration, lending it the feel and tone of both a gossip column and political piece - something that probes not just Clinton interactions but the D.C. political milieu as a whole.


The result may appear weighty, sporting over five hundred pages, but is an absorbing, top recommendation for readers of both biographical and political pieces who will thoroughly enjoy this spirited, lively, and thought-provoking analysis, which arrives in perfect time for Hillary's presidential run.
