    Another of My Unwritten Books

    I've never written a full length book but that doesn't keep me from dreaming and scheming of subjects and outlines. Perhaps if I ever managed to actually get together a serious proposal I might follow through on one of these. Below is the barest of bones of a book I'd like to write.

    Procedural Matters: How do you get to be a candidate in the first place?

    Wooing the Electorate: Babies, Shaking Hands, and Photo Ops

    Information, Issues, and Poll Numbers

    Can You Win in the Media Circus? (Hint: Money helps.)

    The Winner

    Once Elected

    Influence Peddlars and Buyers

    Welcome to the Political Foodchain

    Non-Binding Conclusions
