A new book edited by Susan Morrison gets to the heart of an observation that Sen. Hillary Clinton made about herself years ago: that she is a "Rorschach test" for the nation's voters. In Thirty Ways of Looking at Hillary, notable female writers offer their portraits of Clinton — both personal and political.

"No other politician inspires such a wide range of passionate responses, and this is particularly true among women," Morrison writes. "Cold or competent, overachiever or pioneer, too radical or too moderate, Clinton continues to overturn the assumptions we make about her."
