Hillary Clinton begins media tour for memoir, could be campaign dry run

By Daniel S Levine,

Be prepared to see a lot of Hillary Clinton this month, even if you try to avoid her. Her new memoir, Hard Choices, is hitting bookstores this week and she will be hitting the media tour trail to promote it. Some see it as a dry run for a 2016 presidential campaign, but, as expected, Clinton has not directly answered the question whenever she’s asked about it.

Although the book doesn’t hit stores until tomorrow, many news organizations have already got their hands on copies and began dissecting it. The first chapter that leaked concerned the 2012 attack on a U.S. mission in Benghazi, which was the most anticipated part of the book. In it, she outlined the events leading up to the attack and her response. She also refused to be “a part of a political slugfest on the backs of dead Americans,” later adding, “Those who insist on politicizing the tragedy will have to do so without me.”

The television aspect of the media tour started this weekend on ABC News. A full special, including an interview with Diane Sawyer, is set to air tonight. She’ll also do a live interview on Good Morning America tomorrow.

According to The Huffington Post, she also has scheduled interviews with NBC News and CBS News. Clinton will also participate in a town hall on CNN.

Surprisingly, she has booked a Fox News interview on June 17, starting at 6:45 p.m.

Clinton will be starting the book tour in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago and Washington D.C. this week, as well, notes The Associated Press. Next week, she’ll do a short tour of Canada before more stops in the U.S.
