Robin Gerber is a political insider and author of Eleanor vs. Ike (Avon A), a book that explains how the 2008 Presidential race would be different if Eleanor Roosevelt were running.
And Hillary could learn a thing or two from the politically active First Lady.
Just as Eleanor stood strong on civil rights, Gerber says Hillary needs to stick to her campaign convictions and listen to her voters rather than strategists or pundits.
But most importantly, Hillary needs to be herself.
Gerber says, The depth of her political knowledge is tremendous, and she just needs to speak from the heart instead of trying to fill some model of what people expect her to be.
And while Gerber believes Senator Clinton will win the Democratic nomination, its not going to be an easy road to the White House.
Gerber says, Shes been criticized as being too aggressive, but what they mean is shes too aggressive for a woman. Shes in a tough double bind. She has to transcend gender.
Eleanor vs. Ike is on shelves now.
