Feature Friday: Create the Name of Your Political Memoir

From Time:
To mark the publication of Hillary Clinton's Hard Choices, create a book name of your own
There are hard choices and then there are hard choices—like what to call your political memoir. As with politics, the genre seems encourage a certain brand of safe conformity. When in doubt, politicians can try one resolute word like Duty (Robert Gates) orLeadership (Rudy Giuliani). If you’re Barbara Bush and you’re writing a memoir, you can go with, well, A Memoir. America is a always a good place to start whether you’re An American Son (Marco Rubio), have lived An American Life (Ronald Reagan) or happen to know America By Heart (Sarah Palin). Bravery of all shades is to be celebrated from The Audacity of Hope (Barack Obama) to A Fighting Chance (Elizabeth Warren) to the Courage to Stand (Tim Pawlenty).

I don't know how anyone could say no to "The Sureness to Comport," personally.

  1. "A Design to Persist: Lizzie Jones"

    Sounds edgy. And slightly confusing.

  2. Others: "A Heartfelt Spine," "Active Audacity," and "The Dictum to Steer." Wow.

    1. My vote goes to A Design to Persist or A Heartfelt Spine. Awesome.

  3. Liz Johnson: The Confidence to Decide. (Except not usually.)
    Active Spine: Liz Johnson

    OOH! This is my favorite:
    Liz Johnson: The Attitude to Rule (with a bald eagle on the cover). Oh man. Me and Stephen Colbert.

    1. Hahaha somehow I have little doubt that you and Stephen Colbert would get along swimmingly.
