I don’t usually go to the Hollywood Reporter for political news, but this bit caught my eye.
Huma Abedin is pitching a book.
Sources say the longtime adviser to Hillary Clinton and estranged wife of disgraced congressman Anthony Weiner has been meeting with top literary agents during the past few weeks to discuss a book that is envisioned as a reflection on how her personal and professional lives collided during the campaign.
The report says she is seeking as much as $2 million for the book which, apparently, has Mrs. Clinton’s blessing.
As history records, just before most voters headed to the polls in Novenber, the FBI announced that “while investigating allegedly illicit text messages from Weiner to a 15-year-old girl, it had unearthed emails related to Clinton’s private server.” We all know how that ended.
She can do whatever she wants. As one who reads nearly everything about campaigns and contemporary politics released, I’d be inclined to give this volumes a miss. I don’t blame Ms. Abedun for her husband’s “problems,” but I don’t want to read about them either.
I’m sure there’s a market for this kind of thing, perhaps somewhere near the true crime and self-help sections. No publisher is going to pay real money for this unless it dishes real (new) dirt and extreme soul-baring. Ick in either case.
