Item Description...
For many people, Hillary Rodham Clinton is an Everywoman often held up as an example for all women - feminist but devoted wife and mother, determined social activist, champion of pro-family values, architect of the liberal "village" she believes it takes to raise a child. But in The Hillary Trap, journalist and media personality Laura Ingraham turns a razor sharp eye on this view of Hillary and questions her status as a metaphor for the modern "empowered" woman. According to Ingraham, below the surface of the "strong woman" is a victim-a woman who, though a former First Lady and now a U.S. Senator, has gotten power through compromise and concession, self-deception and deviousness, particularly in the way she has used her relationship with her husband, the former President. Ingraham suggests that if anything, Hillary's mix of opportunism, acquiescence, and dependency has set women back rather than leading them forward. This is the "Hillary Trap." The Hillary Trap discusses the areas in which women have seemingly made strides-in schools, the workplace, the courtroom, and the home- but where they have in fact, Ingraham argues, lost ground. Part biography, part social criticism, always filled with biting wit and provocative political insights, The Hillary Trap shows why a belief system based on women as victims is damaging-and what women can do to regain their power.

More About Laura Ingraham
Laura Ingraham After graduating from Dartmouth College, Laura worked as a speechwriter in the final two years of the Reagan Administration at the White House, the Department of Transportation and the Department of Education. She went on to graduate from the University of Virginia School of Law, where she was Notes Editor of the Law Review. She served as a law clerk to Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and Ralph K. Winter on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit. After clerking, Laura worked as a white-collar criminal defense attorney for Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom. Laura launched "The Laura Ingraham Show" in 2001. In addition to hosting her own syndicated radio program, Laura is an author, frequent columnist, and television commentator. Her book The Hillary Trap: Looking for Power in all the Wrong Places, first released in June 2000, was recently re-released in an updated paperback version. Her second book, Shut Up & Sing: How Elites from Hollywood, Politics, and the UN Are Subverting America is a bestseller. Ingraham's most recent book, Power to the People, was released on September 11, 2007, and topped Amazon's bestseller list September 14. In Power to the People, Ingraham focuses on what she calls the "pornification" of America. She discusses issues such as traditional family values, education, and American patriotism. Power to the People stresses the importance of getting involved in the culture:
"The main thread that runs through these topics I cover in the book is civic involvement and civic virtue. Get in the game. Start a blog, report on what is happening at your local PTA. If you are a parent, and you are disgusted at what you see on your kid's computer screen, do something. Track where your kids go on the Internet. Tell your kids that you are going to review where they are on the Internet. Be a parental filter. Learn about threats that face America - from within and out. Education is the first line of defense."
Laura's latest venture The Obama Diaries: Defeating Obama, Saving America is part fact, part fiction, all fun. Major media outlets love to describe the president as "no drama Obama," but The Obama Diaries tells a different tale. Through these "diary entries," readers will see past the carefully constructed Obama facade to the administration’s true plans to "remake America."

Take it easy  Aug 12, 2007
I do not like Hillary ether, But this book crosses the line of informative, on her and her politics, to an I hate Hillary rant.
Paris Hilton takes on Hillary  May 18, 2005
Let's face it the only reason this Ms. Ingram has a career is that she is sort of attractive and conservative, a combination that apparently filled a need in our Faux media universe. (Also nice to be able to trot out Laura so as to prove that the fear of women embodied in Rush's quaking "femi-nzai" doesn't entirely translate into male Star War fan level of female company.) And let's also be fair she's no worse a hack than Hannity and is at least a bit more coherent than Ann Coulter. Her book on Hillary is just plain fatiguing, throw out some carefully spun ideas that Hillary supposedly represents than trash the straw woman Laura has created. Repeat this exercise endlessly and you have this book. Even while skipping a fair bit I was beginning to crave a little Coulter lunacy to keep things from getting too drab but no such luck. Ms. Ingram, unlike Ann, actually looks good in a leopard skin mini skirt, so why not some photos of that to keep one awake? Or are we supposed to pretend this is a serious book?
Hillary is dangerous--but you already knew that.  Jan 24, 2005
As a disclaimer, let me say that I am a fan of Laura Ingraham's, but I am NOT a fan of Hillary Clinton. You might think that would translate into a rave review for this book, but it doesn't. The basic construct of each chapter is to take a liberal position, demonstrate how Hillary embodies it, and then offer a body of evidence rebutting the position and proving that Clinton is anti-democratic, anti-woman, anti-choice and anti- nearly everything else good and decent. It should be a devastating critique, but it isn't--what comes across is a loosely connected series of chapters with talking points and arguments that suggest Hillary is the personification of what's wrong with America today. And that's the problem--Ingraham would have been more persuasive if she had focused on the most egregious of Hillary's flaws instead of trying to indict Clinton on everything under the sun. Despite the fact that Ingraham litters the book with facts and data (most of which are nice tidbits for any argument you may get into with a Clintonista), it all gets monotonous very quickly and can even seem a little petty at times. All in all, it is a quick, readable political book (think "beach book") with several very good standalone chapters, but it doesn't deserve a place on the conservative bookshelf pantheon. Save that for something from Bork, Schlafly or Buckley.
Sister Sister  Dec 2, 2004
The Hillary Trap is a reader which exposes the failed feminist theory still being pushed by the victim fanfare of the Hillary Clan. In it are seven sections each titled with a different trap. "The sisterhood trap," "The Education Trap," "The Work Trap," etc. which are all traps utilized by Hillary and her group-thinkers to spread the disease of victimhood thinking, lesson individual responsibility and freedom, and gain more government control for "The Village," theory.

An important read for anyone who wishes to clarify the underpinnings of feminist group-thinking, victimization attitudes, or social theory concerning personal responsibility and the tacits of personal freedom.

Book is Really About the Failed Views of Elite Liberal Women  Oct 11, 2003
Laura Ingraham poses an interesting thesis: Hillary Clinton uses the language designed to "liberate" the masses of women in America, yet her policies are less likely to do so. For instance, low-class Sen. Hillary Clinton often speaks of a need for a "village" to raise a child, but in doing so, Ingraham points out, this means taxes must be higher, which decreases the independence of women, and places one's child in a stranger's hands--a child-care provider, which is a necessittee considering our high-tax system (reaching a federal income tax maximum of 35% as of this writing, but was 39.6% when Ingraham published her book).

Similarly, it is also true with other areas--such as self-defense. Hillary Clinton believes that women should not be able to defend themselves, and should instead, while being raped or abused, to accept their victimhood or try to call the police by dialing 9-11, which is not practicle considering police officers cannot be everywhere. Of course, in Hillary's world, this is not a problem since she has Secret Service protection and lives in an upscale neighbhorhood in New York.

The prose is not of the highest quality in this book. It seems that the writer is using the same tone that she would on her radio show, which takes away from the quality of the book. There is a difference between a spooken and written voice, and that is a major defefiency here.

Also, it is important to recognize that while Ingraham is talking about Hillary Clinton, her focus is not necessarily exclusively on her. She is criticizing elite women--those who subscribe to the views of the National Organization for Women, the university professors, female anchors at major news networks (excluding Fox News), and those who work for liberal think tanks or female Democratic Members of Congress.

Overall, it is a good book, although it does lack the quality I have experienced in other conservative books such as Ann Coulter. It lacks the superb logic, researched material, and ability to seriously call one's political opponents for what they are: usurpers of power.
