In their new book, HRC, veteran journalists JONATHAN ALLEN and AMIE PARNES tell the mesmerizing story of Hillary Clinton's political rebirth, based on eyewitness accounts from deep inside her inner circle. Hillary Clinton’s surprising defeat in the 2008 Democratic primary brought her to the nadir of her political career, vanquished by a much younger opponent whose message of change and cutting-edge tech team ran circles around her stodgy campaign. And yet, six years later, she has reemerged as an even more powerful and influential figure, a formidable stateswoman, and the presumed front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination, marking one of the great political comebacks in history.  HRC offers a rare look inside the Clinton political machine and shows how Hillary fundamentally transformed the State Department with her unparalleled knowledge of how power works in Washington. A book signing will follow this Forum. Photo Credit for Allen: Stuart Hovell, Photo Credit for Parnes: Chip Somodevilla
