Hillary Clinton Gets Machiavelli Book at Democrats' Fundraiser

Monday, 29 Sep 2014 07:17 PM

Hillary Clinton accepted an illustrated version of Niccolo Machiavelli’s "The Prince" on behalf of her three-day-old granddaughter at one of two fundraisers she headlined for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in Manhattan today.

New York Representative Steve Israel, the DCCC chairman, gave Clinton the adaptation of Machiavelli’s treatise on political philosophy, several other books and an infant-sized New York Mets uniform. Charlotte Clinton Mezvinsky, the first grandchild of the former secretary of state and former President Bill Clinton, was born on Sept. 26.

"Machiavelli is a must-read for anyone seeking to understand power," Israel said in a statement. "I'm sure this will be helpful to Charlotte as she navigates the cutthroat world of the playground and 'mommy and me.'"

Hillary Clinton spoke about economic security for the middle class at a lunch with 60 high-end donors to the DCCC and a lower-dollar event for about 300 contributors to Democratic candidates, Israel said.

She told donors, "You shouldn’t have to be the granddaughter of a president" to have access to opportunities, Israel said.
