Title Hillary Clinton’s memoir: a Loop contest

And since she’s indicated that she’d like to take it just a little bit easier in retirement than she has in her last four jet-setting years, we thought Loop fans could help her out by coming up with a title for her memoir.

Make her work just a little easier, you know?

So send us your very best book title suggestions — no more than two entries per person, please — and our five favorites will win a coveted Loop T-shirt. Just send them via e-mail by midnight, Feb. 8, to, and be sure to provide your name, profession, mailing address and T-shirt size (M, L or XL), in case you’re a winner.

(Congressional and administration types may enter “on background.”)

You must include a phone number to be eligible.

You’re welcome, Madam Secretary.

Need inspiration? Our colleague Ann Gerhart submitted this: “Bob Barnett Made Me Do It,” a reference to the super-agent/lawyer who famously handles all the blockbuster book deals for the political elite.

We liked her suggestion so much that we promptly drafted her as a member of our august judges’ panel.

For reference, Clinton’s other books have included “It Takes a Village” and “Living History” — and let’s not forget the classic “Dear Socks, Dear Buddy: Kids’ Letters to the First Pets”.)

We’re confident Loop fans can do better.
