Fmr Obama Spox: Hillary’s Book ‘Really Distracts’ Attention from Democrats Trying to ‘Rebuild the Party’

On Monday’s broadcast of CNN’s “The Lead,” CNN Political Commentator and former Obama White House Communications Director Jen Psaki argued that Hillary Clinton’s book tour distracts from efforts to rebuild the Democratic Party.

Psaki began by saying that it was “fair” that Hillary didn’t rule out questioning the legitimacy of the election. She continued, “I think there’s a bigger challenge for Democrats here. Because she’s going to be out there a lot for this book tour. She has every right to write the book, every right to be out there. But it really distracts from Democrats trying to rebuild the party, trying to be out there with message, trying to talk about and health care. Because people are going to be talking about whether we should re-litigate the election. That’s not a good place for us to be.”

She later added that Hillary’s book doesn’t help Democrats.
