Arizona is voting in the presidential primary today. Here is an exclusive excerpt from my new book Front Row Seat at the Circus!
From the Chapter: The Highest Ceiling
While Clinton is painted as a liberal by Republicans, many are surprised to learn she actually started in politics in 1964 as a young Republican supporter of Barry Goldwater, often called the “father of modern conservatism.”
“His emphasis on individual responsibility was exactly in line with the way I was raised,” Clinton told me. “I supported him strongly in that election and I was a Goldwater girl.”
When her husband Bill sought reelection as president in 1996, Goldwater said of him, “If he’d let Hillary run business, I think he’d be better off. I just like the way she acts.”
