A new documentary has been released on the Clinton years and what is billed as a “ten year campaign to destroy Bill and Hillary Clinton.” The Hunting of the President is based on a book by the same name by Joe Conason and Gene Lyons which was first published in 2000. The film isn’t playing yet in St. Louis, but I read the book when it was released and if the film is anything like the book it will be worth viewing. The authors outline a web of right-wing activists with ties to white supremacists, Republican Party operatives, and the office of the Independent Counsel that were clearly bent on destroying the presidency of Bill Clinton. Was there really a right-wing conspiracy? At the very least there was a concerted effort unlike any partisan campaign in recent times. Watch the film and read the book.
