There is a new book coming out about the Clinton 2016 campaign. It is interesting in a number of aspects. Most interesting is that the Clinton camp was pulling for Donald Trump to win the GOP nomination. It is an open secret that they viewed Donald Trump as a flawed and very beatable candidate.

Podesta was bullish on Kasich. Bill and Hillary..
