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?
