Key Political Player: Coming to the White House from the trenches of the Bush presidential campaign, McClellan recounts the American political landscape from the grassroots to the pinnacle of power in a down-to-earth manner. Few in America can offer audiences timelier or more accurate assessments of how politics works in Washington, how the midterm elections may play out and what changes to everyday life they will bring.
