Hillary Clinton

What a literary feast. For this summer's blockbuster read, we've been given one of the most exciting choices ever: either the new Harry Potter, which will be released June 21; or the new Hillary Clinton, which debuted this past weekend.

For grownups, that's a no-brainer. No matter how much trouble that little four-eyed nerd with magical powers gets into, he can't match the excitement of Hillary's learning for the first time from big bad Bill that he'd been lying to her about Monica Lewinsky.

As recounted in Living History, President Clinton realized he'd have to come clean with his wife once he knew he had to testify about Lewinsky to a federal grand jury. He woke her up on Aug. 15, 1998, and dropped the bomb. For six months, believing his lies, Hillary had defended him. Now she was ready to strangle him.
