Hillary’s mom offers gift ideas to help her daughter

December 9, 2008

Looking for that perfect gift for the holidays?

Hillary Clinton’s mom, Dorothy Rodham, has a suggestion for you — a children’s book about her daughter.  For a slightly-higher-than-retail price you can even get the book autographed by Clinton and help her pay down her campaign debt.clintonbook

The unique gift suggestion and campaign donation idea was sent around in an email from Dorothy Rodham entitled “A Perfect Gift.”

Here’s a copy of the email:

“I’m so proud of everything my daughter has accomplished and excited about what her future holds.

“Her life is full of amazing achievements, and her story has inspired millions of people, especially young girls, to achieve their dreams, no matter what they are.

“There’s a wonderful book about her life I’d like to share with you. It’s called Hillary Clinton: Dreams Taking Flight, and it is the perfect way to share my daughter’s story with a child you want to inspire.

“As you know, Hillary is still working hard to pay down the debt from her campaign, and I hope you’ll take this opportunity to help her out. With your contribution of $50, you will receive a copy of Dreams Taking Flight with a specially designed Hillary Clinton bookplate.

“And for that special person in your life, with a contribution of $250 or more, you will receive a book that’s personally signed by Hillary to him or her by name.

“I know you’re just as proud as I am of everything my daughter has achieved, and I want to thank you for everything you’ve done to support her!

“Thanks,

“Dorothy”

And people made a stink when McCain had his daughter join him on the campaign?
