I know, shocker.

Via Weekly Standard:

In an email this evening, a veteran publishing source calls the latest Hillary Clinton book, Hard Choices, a memoir of her State Department years, a “bomb.” The source is referring to the early but underwhelming sales figures.

“Between us, they are nervous at S&S [Simon & Schuster],” says the source, who gave permission for his email to be published. “Sales were well below expectations and the media was a disaster.”

According to this source, a Simon & Schuster insider, “They sold 60,000 hard covers first week and 24,000 ebooks.” The publishing house was “hoping and praying for 150,000 print first week.”

“The 60k represents a less than 10% sell thru based on what they shipped,” says the source.

It’s been reported that one million copies of Clinton’s book were shipped weeks before the June 10 publication date. “They will be lucky to sell 150,000 total lifetime,” the source writes in the email.

Hillary reportedly received a near-$14 million advance, a sum the publishing house will unlikely make back.

It is a shocker to me. Usually when a Rat pols book bombs, the Unions and other special interests buy them up to boost sales and then pass them out as fundraising perks.

BTW, this just supports my theory that this woman isn't going to run and is unelectable. People are done with the Clintoons.

Yeah, they'll fix this oversight quickly.

I sure hope you're right about being done with the Clintoons! Only what's next?

There is a pile of backbenchers itching to get in. Cuomo, Jerry Brown, That dopey Gov of MD... And then there is Biden. Can anyone remember a cycle where if the sitting VP was running, he didn't get the nomination?
