  "An up-to-date political drama describing the race for the primaries and the backstage drama and political games played to win!" by jendorf10 (see profile) 11/16/07

Personally, I enjoyed the book and its plot and characters. I enjoyed watching the West Wing and this books has elements of that type of story as well as all the political games played out on CNN and MSNBC and FOXNews!
The book group was split on liking it and disliking it. It was politically heavy for our younger member. It was fun to recognize characteristics of the current politicians running for President right now in the USA!
There were a lot of characters and that was a negative to some of our members. I felt it was easier to remember their names with a word association - Grace and his personality; Hart as a love interest; Price and his price that he exacts on his candidates; and Christy and his Christian beliefs.
The ending was a surprise for all of us so I won't spoil it!

 
  "The Race" by rlacourse (see profile) 01/19/12

Timely as elections are approaching. Saddens me to realize how well meaning candidates get twisted into pretzels trying to be all things to all people to get elected and so became the soulless robots so many people associate with politics.
