Wally has enemies - among them, Dan Bitterman, as former classmate who is now a reporter for the President's hometown weekly newspaper. Two other bitter enemies of Wally Zerignue become secret informants for the reporter.
As Bitterman uncovers more and more dirt on the new President, the nation's intelligentsia joins in for the kill.

About the Author
David Pierson, a Louisiana native, labored for many years as a newspaper reporter and magazine editor before returning to the classroom as a high school English teacher. He says he finds more intellectual stimulation working with young people than with adults whose minds have already been set.
An experienced public speaker who has been interviewed countless times on television, radio and in print - he prefers being "on stage" every day in the classroom, telling stories to his students.
Well-read, especially in classical literature, he has written detailed, in-depth reading comprehension questions and answers for many epics, novels, short stories and plays (among them every play by Shakespeare).
The founder of the longest-running scholastic chess league in the country, Mr. Pierson lays claim to being the most checkmated person in the history of the game. (That is because he has drilled more than four thousand young people on how to force checkmates on their opponents with two rooks, a queen or one rook.)
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Wally Zeringue for president! It was a very enjoyable book with some great ideas. It's funny to think that a book that Pierson wrote so long ago, still holds up today with solutions to some of today's problems that never went away. I will definitely be reading it again.
Great Book! You won't want to put it down. It's the kind of story that keeps drawing you in deeper into the plot because Pierson sets up each chapters ending to where you have to find out what happened next. He gives you little by little and leaves you with a surprise ending that was very satisfying. Clever with great characters, it's the kind of book that I will definitely read multiple times so it was definitely well worth the purchase.
