To a generation of Democrats, Terry McAuliffe is the ultimate political insider-confidante of the candidates, master strategist, party spokesperson, mediator among party leaders, and without question the most successful fundraiser in political history. McAuliffe's energetic narrative provides readers with a fly-on-the-wall view, from the front lines to the back rooms where deals are made, strategies are conceived, initiatives launched - and elections are won or (sometimes) lost. Starting with the Carter-Kennedy primary contest in 1980, he brings you along the campaign trail (where he prepares for later fund-raising struggles by wrestling an alligator), and travels with legendary House Speaker Tip O'Neill to take on the Reagan Revolution. He shows how Bill Clinton won the White House in 1992, takes you behind the scenes of the 1993 healthcare reform initiative, and tells the true stories behind the Clinton house loan and the Lincoln bedroom and White House coffees. McAuliffe tells about the near victories and crushing losses in the 2000 and 2004 presidential campaigns-the latter during his four-year term as Chairman of the DNC.
