|Subject||Cristina Fernández de Kirchner|
La Presidenta: historia de una vida (Spanish: The President, story of a life) is a 2011 biography of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, written by journalist Sandra Russo. It was ranked as the most sold non-fiction book in the first two weeks since its edition. It is based in four interviews with Cristina Fernández and other close politicians.
Cristina Fernandez said that it was a mistake to appoint Graciela Ocaña to the ministry of health. Ocaña revealed then that the president might have requested her to avoid taking actions against Juan José Zanola, a CGT unionist trialed for embezzlement with health plans. She mentioned as well that she intended to improve the health plans system.
She also considered a mistake to select Julio Cobos to run for vicepresident under her 2007 ticket. Cobos, as head of the Senate of Argentina, voted against a government proposal during the 2008 Argentine government conflict with the agricultural sector, and the government had a conflict with him since then. Cobos said that the book had conceptual errors.
