Mr. Blumenthal discussed his book The Clinton Wars, published by Farrar, Straus and Giroux. Mr. Blumenthal worked as assistant and senior adviser to President Clinton from August 1997 until January 2001. The book is a behind-the-scenes account of the Clinton presidency from 1987, when Bill Clinton began to contemplate a run for the presidency through his second term. Mr. Blumenthal details President Clinton’s relationship with Tony Blair, Hillary Clinton’s Senate campaign and Al Gore’s presidential campaign. The book is also a defense of his own role in the Clinton scandals and a loyal account of Clinton’s presidency as a highly successful one dedicated to progressive values while under constant attack by a right-wing conspiracy. After his presentation, Mr. Blumenthal answered questions from members of the audience. close
