Thank God Hillary Clinton’s ‘Book Tour’ Is Over

In case you missed it, Hillary Clinton appeared on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart Tuesday to “talk about her new book,” Hard Choices.

“No one cares” about the book, Stewart said. “They just want to know if you’re running for president.”

Talk about the elephant in the room—he must be tired after making appearances at every stop on Clinton’s book publicity campaign.

As expected, Clinton dodged the question but teased out answers.

“Do you have a favorite shape for that office?” Stewart asked. “Would you like it to have corners or like it not to have corners?”

“The fewer corners the better,” Clinton replied. “The world is complicated enough.”

What a yuk!  But seriously, haven’t we had enough? Like the elephant in the room, many are tired of this drawn out quasi-presidential-campaign-but-actually-a-book-tour charade. It didn’t feel authentic. It didn’t feel timely. Did it even work?

PRNewsers, what’s your take on the strategy behind Hillary’s campaign, which has nothing whatsoever to do with the year 2016?
