WASHINGTON — Hillary Rodham Clinton's forthcoming book will be called Hard Choices, a title that reflects how the potential 2016 presidential candidate may try to define her record as President Barack Obama's secretary of state while she considers another White House campaign.

Publisher Simon & Schuster said Friday that the new book, to be released June 10, will offer Clinton's "inside account of the crises, choices and challenges" she faced as secretary of state and "how those experiences drive her view of the future."

"All of us face hard choices in our lives," Clinton writes at the start of the book, according to the publisher. "Life is about making these choices, and how we handle them shapes the people we become."

Clinton's State Department memoir will hit bookshelves as the former first lady and New York senator sits atop polls about hypothetical candidates as the leading Democratic contender should she seek the presidency. Since leaving the State Department, Clinton has traveled widely, giving speeches to industry groups, college students and others while joining the foundation led by her daughter, Chelsea Clinton, and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.

    Having gotten the advanced copy the other day, it is a fascinating book.
    Definitely a new book duh, but there is only one truth in it, which would be the only hard choice Ole poor Hillary had to make and swallow, was working under Obama as secretary of state.
    No doubt that the flocks of liberal minions will buy this book and Ooh and Aah for days on end.
    Spoiler alert !! Same old and failed lies, schemes, and approaches repackaged in a new presentation (verbiage) that is assured to give liberals a false empowerment.

    The only choices she ever seemed to make were about what to pack on her next unproductive foreign trip. John Kerry, inept as he is, has done more as Secretary of State than she did in 4 years. Compare her record to Condoleezza Rice and see the difference. I'll bet her choices on Benghazi don't make the book.

    Hard choice - to be a humiliated cuckold or let go of superman's coat tails and stand on her own veracity.

    I'll bet pobunker supports the nut case rancher in nevada with the rest of the tea party and skinheads. Let's see if I got this right, food stamps BAD, health insurance BAD, entitlements bad, people getting something for free (like cellphones) BAD, BUT, BUT a rancher getting free grazing rights for his cattle GOOD. Liberals protesting BAD, skinheads, militia's,so called patraiots protesting GOOD. Liberals breaking law BAD, conservatives breaking law GOOD. It's is about sterotyping images welfare queen BAD, rancher patriot GOOD. Sensable people see through this charade the right wing is putting on. You only have to see the absolutes nut cases supporting the rancher, Ted (dirty pants) Nugent NRA board member, Mike Huckabee ex Baptist preacher,Sean Hannity and Rush Limbough. That says it all.
