Bad Campaign Memoirs

Transcript

It used to be that politicians' lives were recounted after their careers, by professional biographers. Today, writing a memoir has become de rigueur for political aspirants looking to garner votes. Manoush speaks with Politico's Casey Cep, who says these books amount to little more than press releases that consistently fall flat.

Seriously, we're still harping on the GOP faux scandal that Warren listed herself as partially American Indian?

Why don't we trying basing our opinion of her by her brilliant mind ?

There was an interesting article in the Boston Globe about Elizabeth Warren's latest book, reflecting back on her campaign.

The Globe usually treats her with kid gloves, so this is a refreshing take on her career and the way she likes to rewrite history.

"her continued refusal to acknowledge the significance of identifying herself as a minority back when she was an ambitious law professor trying to break into the Ivy League is disingenuous."
