Tom’s guest today is Jennifer Palmieri. She was the Communications Director for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign and the White House Communications Director for President Barack Obama. She is also a former national press secretary for the Democratic Party, the press secretary during John Edwards’ 2004 presidential campaign, and she served in the Clinton White House, as well.  Jennifer Palmieri is now the president of the Center for American Progress Action Fund.

Her new book is a reflection on Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, and a shout-out to the women who will do what Secretary Clinton was unable to do: break the glass ceiling at the White House. It’s called "Dear Madam President: An Open Letter to the Women Who Will Run the World." 

She will be part of a panel discussion this Sunday, June 10, at the Books in Bloom Festival, on the lakefront in Columbia. She’ll be part of panel called From Casting Votes to Winning Votes: A History from Elizabeth Cady Stanton to Hillary Clinton. The panel begins at 12:15. Click here for more information about that.
