    I just finished reading "Storming the State House" and

    I just finished reading "Storming the State House" and I am very impressed. This book is a no-brainer must-read for anyone interested in politics. It gives a compelling behind-the-scenes account of the art of campaigning that most people would never have a chance to see otherwise.

    Some of the most fascinating parts though were about Hubbard's life outside of politics. The chapter where he discusses working on Bo Jackson's and Herschel Walker's Heisman trophy campaigns was particularly interesting.

    From Huey Long in Louisiana to the Talmadges in Georgia and Theodore Bilbo in Mississippi, the South has a rich history of oversized political personalities. Unfortunately, competence, character, and courage are not adjectives that have typically been used to describe the South's lawmakers. With "Storming the State House," Mike Hubbard looks to change that -- and in my view he succeeds.
