Hillary Clinton: Born Again Progressive or Architect of Empire

Doug Henwood

In the current presidential campaign, Hillary Clinton has been acting like some sort of born-again progressive, the reincarnation of Eleanor Roosevelt. Many people are falling for this act. But there’s nothing in her history of hawkishness and service to money and imperial power that should inspire anyone to believe her. Join us for an afternoon with Doug Henwood, who reviews that history in his book My Turn (OR Books http://www.orbooks.com/catalog/my-turn-by-doug-henwood). Doug Henwood is editor of Left Business Observer, host of Behind the News, and author of Wall Street. He is working on a study of the American ruling class as a rotting social formation.
