Overview

Vote for Me!: The Long Road to the White House by John Barron

From the corn fields of Iowa to the White House - candidates from Jimmy Carter to Barack Obama have taken a grassroots path to the Presidency. But how did the long, colourful contest for the most powerful political office on earth get to be this way? Journalist and American politics expert John Barron follows the story back to the anti-war movement of the 1960's and along the way meets some of the men and women who paved the way for the election of America's first black President in 2008. Barron encounters some well-known figures including 1972 Presidential nominee George McGovern and the first "internet candidate" Howard Dean. Part campaign-diary, part political history, Vote for Me is informative, funny and essential reading for anyone who wants to understand how America elects its Presidents
