What's not in Hillary Clinton's memoir?

Washington(CNN) – How many ways can political reporters, pundits and book reviewers write that Hillary Clinton's memoir "Hard Choices" is devoid of salacious details or titillatingly news?

Many, apparently.

    Imagine that a teaklan Navarro doesn't like Hillary's book because it doesn't have juicy parts.
    The bible thumping crowd seems to like that part of anybody's life and they sure as heck make it a point of sinning when they can too.
    Is that the only reason they read books? Can they even read?

    Truth and Facts, can't find those in Hillarys' book. Guess the ghost writer forgot those.

    Now she'll be bashed for not having salacious details in her book for the GOP to use against her. Smh.

    the right wanted a tell all book so they could find things to hammer her about. They are running scared. She is just as good a politician as anyone on the right. For some reason republican men find her intimidating. Maybe because they have never met a woman with her own ideas who stands up to them. Not every woman is a Ann Romney or Laura (crazy eye ) Bush. Go get them girl .

    "She is just as good a politician as anyone on the right ... "

    She is who she is. Whomever it is who ends up running against her has a long, steep hill to climb. Not only will they end up failing in their attempt to "define" Hillary Clinton, they will fail in their attempt to run against her. Same thing happened in 2012. They spent too much valuable time "defining" Obama and not enough time "defending" themselves and what they stand for besides flinging mud pies. Once GOPers realize they're flinging mud pies at the sky, it'll be too late. The GOP candidates (indeed the party membership itself) is already running scared ... not a good position to be in when one wants to become the President of the United States of America. Running scared, that is. It shows weakness and inability to put petty politics aside.

    A memoir is not a Curriculum Vitae (CV). And in any Presidential race it is not necessary. I didn't read any memoir from neither McCain nor Sarah Palin, still they run in 2008. If any candidate decides to come up with a memoir before running, it is just only an added advantage that people get to know her/him in more details.

    Funny how Republicans continue to harass and lie about her but STILL can't come up with anything near as good. Maybe if they spent their time working to fix things, and less trying to tear everything and everyone down, they would be more attractive to doers and less for blamers.

    From now onwards I will be fully engaged with CNN in giving out my comments. I can't stand people like Mika and Joe on MSNBC who think Hillary & Bill can't become broke. First of all, why are these people there for? Who can anyone employ anyone who doesn't think? Are they judging the book by its cover? Those who are well off you know very how much you try very hard to put on a positive face that everything is OK while it is not. It happens to everyone. Even the Kochs Brothers do the same. Money is always earned and not grabbed because you have the Power/ability to do so. If the Clintons say they were broke, I fully believe they were.

    Huh?
    Oh, you have to read the book to find out what's in it. Now who said that? Oh, not Hillary? Humm. Old Gunderson no need to read book to find out what's in it. Nothing!!

    All I heard was this: "MSM bobbleheads, nontroversy peddlers and unjournalists are whining and pantwetting that Clinton's memoir does not spoonfeed them myriad juicy tidbits with which to sensationalize more nontroversy, false equivalencies and general tapdancing for advertising dollars. Angered and resentful at her apparent refusal to feed the black hole journalism machine, they've decided to make attacking her memoir the story."

    Maybe she's saving that until Americans (the world?) have bought all the rest of the garbage she can sell. After all, she IS smart.

    OMG, they were in debt! *GASP* I'll surely vote for her now, because she's just like the rest of us normal people! NOT!

    The sad part is that the Dems aren't trying to come up with something better. It's still early, though.

    It's surprising Captain Babytalk can even read and write in the first place.

    Conservative cookbook:
    – nice picture of Clinton: looks like a queen
    – not nice picture of Clinton: she is sick and old (Rove/Rush lie)
    – average picture of Clinton: Benghazi!

    You think qualified, viable POTUS candidates are grown in labs?

    Conservatives do not need to read it. They can wait for Rush to tell them what it says. Or just make up some stuff themselves.

    No, they either are married to a MALE politician and rise on HIS coattails;
    OR they WORK their way up through government, as so many male and FEMALE politicians have done, to establish a record of political service on their own merit.

    Their are more than a few who meet the second qualification. i don't recognize the first as a qualification, but apparently most Dems do.
