CNN on "Shattered"
Atlantic Council - Warsaw, Poland
Most compelling character:
Not Hillary Clinton -- but that's by design, as Allen and Parnes' thesis about the campaign's failure depends on Clinton's being framed as simultaneously world-weary and naive, controlling and remote, distracted and obsessive, but most of all, incredibly boring. Bernie Sanders comes off as far more interesting, though he's also firmly presented as unelectable. Though a minor character, the most memorably described figure in the book comes early: Clinton true-believer Adam Parkhomenko, whose desire to see her elected president was so passionate that it led him to found the scrappy grassroots movement Ready for Hillary and spend a full decade tirelessly fighting to make her POTUS.

“Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but people should have a new appreciation for why he made the decisions he made at the time,” said Adam Parkhomenko, a co-founder of Ready for Hillary and a former campaign aide, adding that Comey provided new clarity into his thinking that he hadn’t really offered in 2016.
Parkhomenko put it this way on Twitter: “Today showed me I’m partisan and Comey is not.”
“We need more answers,” Parkhomenko wrote on the social media site. “This is going to be a long haul. We search for the truth. But I feel that in Mr. Comey is a true patriot. And someone that always thought of how best to be independent and protect the institution and country he worked for first.”
