What happens when the President-Elect dies before the electoral college meets? The answer is chaos. With no clear successor, Bob MacKenzie, the ace political strategist for the deceased President-Elect, must attempt to maneuver his man, the Vice-President-Elect, into the White House. But it will not be easy. He faces opposition from the current President, a former President, and even his closest friend in politics. His most fierce opposition, though, is from the runner-up at the Republican Convention, Wayne Brackett. Bob considers him the most dangerous man in politics who will stop at nothing to win. Despite Bob's lingering feeling that the Vice-President-Elect really doesn't even want to be President, he must ensure that Wayne Brackett does not win the White House. Complicating the matter is the reappearance of a former lover, whose motives he can't truly decipher. Can Bob successfully negotiate the mindfield without destroying his relationship with his friends and family? Strange bedfellows emerge as a free-for-all ensues for control of the White House.
