Hillary Clinton’s book tour comes to Atlanta on Monday

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is headed to Atlanta on Monday for an hourlong conversation as part of her book tour.

Her visit to the Fox Theatre is part of a 16-city nationwide tour where she’s mixed self-deprecating humor with analysis of her 2016 defeat to Republican Donald Trump.

The book, “What Happened,” details Clinton’s campaign to become the nation’s first woman president, the factors that led to her stunning loss and her life after the November vote.

The tour is part of ongoing Democratic hand-wringing about last year’s vote, marked by new questions about whether the Democratic National Committee favored her campaign over Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’ insurgent bid.

At other stops, Clinton lamented the letter sent by then-FBI Director James Comey that reopened an investigation into Clinton’s use of a private email server days before the election as a “proximate cause” of her defeat.

And she’s said she’s heartened by Democratic victories in New Jersey, Virginia and elsewhere in last week’s votes. She called them a sign the “fever has broken” and that voters are not going to stomach “political machinations” of the Trump administration.

It is Clinton’s first formal visit to Atlanta since a late February 2016 campaign trip where she stumped for votes at City Hall and the Georgia Capitol days before the March presidential primary. She easily defeated Sanders in that vote,  but lost Georgia by 5 points in the general election.

For someone who as Secretary of State oversaw the hacked voter machines of Georgia (twice I might add) , the wiping of the KSU voter servers, and who refused FBI assistance to protect voter integrity - this is rather rich. A more divisive and inflammatory individual posing as a public servant you would be hard pressed to find.

@time2stopthemadness I assume you're talking about Republican Brian Kemp, Georgia's corrupt Secretary of State who oversaw the election, voting machines, KSU servers. Right?  Each state has control over their own voting machines & servers..not the Federal Govt. 

Hillary has been a private citizen since February 1, 2013...FOUR YEARS.  Isn't it time for you to move on?

Considering how many conservatives there are in Georgia and the fact that Conservatives are incapable of thinking about anything other than Hillary Clinton, she should have a good crowd.

One of her arguments in her book is that she believed that because of her Methodist background she could "do a world of good for an awful lot of people." That is a strangely trite and stale sentiment from a supposedly smart woman. More important, her dismissal of those who did not support her candidacy as "deplorable"  evidently eliminates an "awful lot of people" from those  she would grant "a world of good," and the condemnation of  such "deplorables" as "irredeemable" belies the possibility of that "amazing Grace" that is the core of her Methodist faith.
