Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is attempting an “extreme makeover” to disguise her liberal record, says conservative author Bay Buchanan, who will speak today at the National Press Club.

Miss Buchanan will appear at a 3 p.m. book-signing event sponsored by the Clare Boothe Luce Policy Institute as part of its “Afternoon With an Author” series.

In her new book, “The Extreme Makeover of Hillary (Rodham) Clinton,” Miss Buchanan writes that Mrs. Clinton is being portrayed in the press as a moderate presidential candidate for 2008, but that “with the possible exception of Ted Kennedy, she is the most identifiable member of the Democrats’ left wing, a position she has earned through years of hard work.”

Miss Buchanan, a political analyst for CNN, served as the campaign chairman for all three of her brother Patrick J. Buchanan’s presidential bids. She is president of American Cause, a conservative educational foundation. In 1981, President Reagan appointed her to be treasurer of the United States. At the age of 32, she was the youngest person to hold that position since it was established in 1775.
