The Struggle for the White House with Mark Halperin.
No other reporters in politics today have had greater access to the inner working and winning strategies of the Clintons and the Bushes than Mark Halperin of ABC News and John Harris of the Washington Post. Their new book, The Way to Win, tells the remarkable story about how these two ambitious families have dominated American politics to hold the White House for twenty consecutive years, with another Clinton now poised to continue the streak. They also pull back the curtain on the political operation of Karl Rove that has achieved three stunning presidential and congressional victories.
Taking readers inside the polarized and unforgiving environment that shapes modern American politics and media, their book traces what George W. Bush and Karl Rove learned from the errors (and successes) of Bill Clinton, and what Hillary Clinton has learned from the successes (and errors) of Bush and Rove. This book shows us how and why presidential campaigns are won and lost, how the Old Media is losing its battle against the New Media, and why virtually everyone in the business is dissatisfied with the way modern politics works.
