I came across this paperback the other day. It's copyrighted 1988 -- smack in the Reagan-Bush era.
I don't know anything about the author, but the tagline -- "They'll kill to keep a woman out of the White House" -- struck me as amusing given Hillary Clinton's failed coronation and the VP aspirations of Gov. Palin.
That's all, just seemed a little funny to come across.
If I ever read the book, I'll let you know how it turns out. If it's anything like Irving Wallace's 1960s potboiler The Man (a Negro man becomes US President, how scary--not!) -- then it will take a historic idea and dumb it down for some silly thrills.
If I want some silly thrills, I'll just rub ketchup on my face and lie down in the backyard and let Buddy slobber me to death.
