BOOK REPORT: "Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years" by Rich Lowry

The most recent book I read was "Legacy: Paying the Price for the Clinton Years" by Rich Lowry of National Review. As we approach the fifth anniversary of the September 11th attacks, I thought it was necessary to remind myself of what was going in the 1990’s that left us so vulnerable to terrorist attack. I understand that the ABC’s special mini-series "The Path to 9/11" is going to be tough but honest about the Clinton Administration’s record on combating terrorism. I have the two-part, five-hour special programmed on my TiVo. I’ll blog on it after I see it.

I am very interested to see how Penny Johnson Jerald portrays Condoleezza Rice in the mini-series. The last thing I saw her in was when she played the ambitious, duplicitous and estranged First Lady to President David Palmer (played by Dennis Haysbert) in the outstanding FOX TV show "24". She also played Kasidy Yates, the wife of Captain Sisko, on "Star Trek: Deep Space Nine".

Back to the Lowry book. It’s a quick read and is a good primer on the litany of Clinton policy and character sins while president. I recommend it.
