Hillary Clinton is doing the right thing by tackling the controversies surrounding her such as Benghazi in her new memoir, says veteran Democratic political strategist Hank Sheinkopf.

"The people who are going to blame her for these things are going to continue to blame her anyway,'' Sheinkopf, president of Sheinkopf Communications, told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV.

"The first rule in public life is to hang a lantern on your problems. She did.... She's going to draw fire for it, but it can only go on for so long.''

Story continues below video.



This week, the former secretary of State and potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2016 launched a national publicity campaign for her new memoir "Hard Choices,'' published by Simon & Schuster.

She is standing by her handling of the Benghazi attack, which a House select committee is now investigating.

"The Republicans having hearings and smearing her around and beating her up is going to be so good that they'll probably elect her president of the United States,'' Sheinkopf predicted.

He also called former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush and Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker the "perfect'' Republican ticket to defeat Clinton.

"The road to victory for anybody running for president is … called Southern Protestants, Northern Catholics. They've already got the Southern Protestants,'' Sheinkopf said.

"What they need is the Northern Catholics to beat her because they're not going to win New York and they're not going to win California.

"How do you do that? You get somebody from the Midwest on that ticket and you get a Southerner to make sure the turnouts are higher.''
