‘Dear Madam President’ New Clinton Aide Book, Same Old Stuff

“Dear Madam President” is a new book by former Hillary Clinton aide Jennifer Palmieri. In this book, which I have not read, Miss Palmieri goes over old ground with the same tired complaints. That does not mean that we cannot have fun with it. Right? Yup.

Amazon.com has the following description of the book:

DEAR MADAM PRESIDENT is an empowering letter from former Hillary Clinton Communications Director Jennifer Palmieri to the first woman president, and by extension, to all women working to succeed in any field. By using lessons learned during her experiences with Hillary Clinton, President Obama, and Elizabeth Edwards–to name a few–Palmieri through each chapter creates a forward-thinking framework of inspirational and practical advice for all women everywhere–from boardrooms to living rooms–who are determined to seize control of their lives, their workplaces, and their country. DEAR MADAM PRESIDENT will turn the results of the 2016 election into something incredibly empowering for future female leaders and independent thinkers everywhere.

Two “empowereds” in one paragraph, that’s, um, empowering. And, there is this too from Amazon:

As a country, we haven’t wrapped our heads around what it should look like for a woman to be in the job of President. Our only models are men. This of course was seen during the Hillary Clinton campaign, and no one knows this better than Jennifer Palmieri. While wildly disappointed by the outcome of the election, Palmieri optimistically argues in the book that the Clinton candidacy and all she experienced on the campaign trail–confusion, admiration, hate, love, acceptance, rejection–can now open the country up to reimagining women in leadership roles. And that is what Palmieri takes on in this book–redefining expectations for women looking to lead and creating a blueprint for women candidates and leaders to follow.

“As a country,” we haven’t wrapped out heads around what it would be like for a blind person or a person of the Jewish faith to be in the job of President, either. I am just spitballing here, but I would think that if that person had a fresh perspective and was true to him/herself we would judge that person fairly.

Jennifer Palmieri was not just an aide to Hillary Clinton. Palmieri was the White House Communications Director for President Barack Obama. Miss Palmieri also worked in the President Bill Clinton White House and for the campaign of the reprobate Senator John Edwards. She has been around power for decades. And, yet, she hitched her wagon to Hillary Clinton and said the following in an interview with NPR:

“She’d been Hillary Clinton her whole life,” Palmieri told NPR. “She [Clinton] knew, she anticipated a lot of how the public would likely to react to her.” And Palmieri talks about what it was like running a woman for president, and how hard that was to do, saying, “I felt like Hillary was running for president with half her humanity tied behind her back.”

Jennifer Palmieri, Communications Director, did you communicate to Hillary at all? Why did you let her run for president with “half her humanity tied behind her back?” Maybe it wasn’t Mrs. Clinton’s female DNA that America and American women rejected. Maybe we rejected Hillary Clinton because the older people remember things like Billy Dale and the Travel Office. Maybe Middle America rejected Hillary Clinton because her home brew server gives them insight into her true character. As Mrs. Clinton’s aide, did you communicate this to her?

And, speaking of communicating, did y’all see Jennifer Palmieri with Tucker Carlson last night?

Call the Whambulance for Palmieri. The sour face right from jump and the total makeover by “Mrs. Doubtfire.” She said she likes Tucker. Yeah, right? Don’t put baby in the corner and don’t put Jennifer in a box.

See, I told you. Even though Jennifer Palmieri trots out the familiar tropes, we still had fun with her new book. And, yes, I am lookist.

    Well written review!

    I am reminded of the Dilbert cartoon where he turns down a new job explaining that if they have to say he’s empowered, that means he isn’t.

    We’ve seen and are seeing women as heads of state, and so far, (aside from Margaret Thatcher) I’m not impressed. Yes, they’re leading; they’re leading their countries (Germany, France and England to name three) into the toilet. I would prefer America doesn’t have to find out the hard way what it’s like to have female leadership.

    I can’t wait for 2024 and voting for Nikki Haley for president. What I don’t want to vote for is a corrupt progressive elitist. Who’s entire emails are held by the Russians, Chinese, North Koreans and Iranians, subjecting her to blackmail.
