NonfictionLarge Print EditionA rich portrait of American political vocation as it is conceived and practiced at the highest levels. New York Times* A New York Times BestsellerDick Morris was, before his fall from grace, the most influential person in American politics. No one has so vividly described what policy wonks, pollsters, and advertisers do behind the scenes in the Oval Office. And no one has so acutely identified the new political forces that dominate American politics today. Dick Morris makes no excuse for his personal conduct. What he gives us is a box seat view of the struggles in the White House for the soul of the Democratic party. He gives us a three-dimensional picture of the Clintons. And the master of polling offers a surprising perspective on the values and desires of America. Filled with insights and touched with pathos, Behind the Oval Office is must-reading for anyone who cares about the future of American democracy.
