Will you read Hillary Clinton’s memoir?

Bringing you a Crossfire Classic today. Remember when former Crossfire host Tucker Carlson lost a bet to Hillary Clinton in which he said she would not sell 1 million copies of her book?

Well, spoiler alert, she did and his punishment was to eat a shoe cake.

Today, her new memoir, which focuses on her time spent as Secretary of State, releases this June.

This book is an important one for Clinton, as it serves an opportunity for her to frame her years as America's top diplomat as a success, especially with critics charging that she had no crowning achievement during that time.

We want you to weigh in: Hillary Clinton’s new memoir will be published June 10. Will you read it?

Crossfire Classic: John Connally

John Connally survived November 22, 1963 and went on to a long, distinguished career – including service as U.S. Treasury Secretary. In early 1983, he was a guest on Crossfire and reflects on the assassination of President Kennedy.

Connally was also asked about the most-impressive leader he’d worked with. His answer may surprise you.
