The Election is the story of a 60's hippie turned wealthy and successful 90's yuppie who rediscovers his youthful idealism and runs for President as a third alternative candidate. He fights off a scandal and attempted assassinations to force a cliffhanger election night. And the reader is left hanging off that cliff for all of Part Three as the Electoral College system runs amuck before producing a dramatic final result. This book will appeal to readers who have lamented having to choose between the "lesser of two evils" for President. They'll enjoy the fantasy of a third-alternative candidate who shakes up the status quo and provides a wild and crazy ride through the possibilities of the Electoral College system (once called the "presidential lottery" by author James Michener).
