Title of Hillary Clinton's campaign memoir revealed

For the first time since her stunning 2016 presidential election defeat to Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton reveals personal details of the unprecedented campaign through her tell-all book "What Happened". "Now I'm letting my guard down", Clinton writes in an excerpt from the book's introduction.

Twitter immediately reacted with imaginative edits of the book cover and title explaining their versions of "What Happened" in the election.

In the book, the authors describe how the campaign ignored the advice of Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, to reach out to communities that weren't already on board with Hillary Clinton's policies.

The former first lady and secretary of state is now putting "the finishing touches" on the book, which is due to be published in September.

The memoir will hit the stands a little more than a year before the 2018 mid-term elections and if Parnes' preview is a true indication of the tone and content of the book, it could very well bolster the chances of Republicans to not only retain their majorities in the House and Senate, they might even gain some seats in the upper chamber.

Her publisher, Simon & Schuster, adds that the book will also discuss Clinton's "challenges of being a strong woman in the public eye" as the first female presidential nominee of a major USA political party.

Clinton's tome will be "her most personal memoir yet", it said. "But then the Comey letter coming as it did - just 10 days before the election - really raised questions in a lot of people". A Clinton ally told Axios that the book would be a "bombshell", but indicated it would be a "why I lost" type book that focuses in particular on Comey and Russian Federation. By analyzing the evidence and connecting the dots, Hillary shows just how risky the forces are that shaped the outcome, and why Americans need to understand them to protect our values and our democracy in the future.

I wonder if she'll explain how the Russians and Comey tricked her into ignoring Wisconsin, Michigan and Pennsylvania.
