Dick Morris, who helped President Bill Clinton win re-election in 1996, is the most prominent political commentator today, and one of the most fearless predictors of future trends on the political landscape. In "Condi vs Hillary", he traces the trends that could lead to the political race of the century: a contest between Condoleezza Rice versus Hillary Rodham Clinton in the election of 2008. In this eye-opening new book, Morris contends that Condoleezza Rice, secretary of state in George W Bush's second cabinet, is the only Republican on the national scene with the credentials, credibility, and popularity to lead the Republican Party in 2008. And he outlines how the Democratic Party, fresh from its narrow yet crushing defeat in 2004, is likely to return to its one source of political power in the last several decades - the Clinton family. The resulting race would be a perfect storm of twenty-first-century politics, pitting two of America's most popular - and controversial - women against each other, opening a new era in American politics...and leaving America's future hanging in the balance.
With his experience as the Clintons' political adviser, Dick Morris is uniquely positioned to offer pre-game commentary on this match of a lifetime. In "Condi vs Hillary", he reveals how Hillary Clinton has nurtured presidential ambitions for decades, and describes how years ago Hillary enlisted him to take secret polls on her behalf. He reveals what Bill Clinton really thinks of a potential President Hillary, and speculates on the agendas she would further in her campaign. And he contrasts Hillary's record with that of Condoleezza Rice, whom he calls "America's Margaret Thatcher" and whose presidency, he says, would enrage the liberal establishment and "shatter all the glass ceilings in America."
Dick Morris has advised politicians as diverse as Bill Clinton, Trent Lott, and the newly elected president of the Ukraine, Viktor Yushchenko. He is also a political analyst on the Fox News Channel, a widely syndicated columnist, and the author of four New York Times bestsellers.
