So why did I give it 2 stars rather than 1?

Above all, this is a great read for those with an interest in American Presidential political history.

They will drop Hillary like a hot potato and throw their support behind Condi.

Anyone who has been paying attention to the 2008 election will gaze in awe at Dick Morris's amazing prescience. Indeed, the race between Hilary Clinton and Condi Rice riveted America. And only a woman of Condi's intellectual depth and personal integrity could save us from Hilary Clinton and become America's first Black president.

This is proof positive that anyone can write a book. Mr. Morris' analytical skills are on par with those of Inspector Clouseau. Highly recommended it you what to have a good laugh. Otherwise not so much.

Once again Dick Morris has proven to be frighteningly prescient in his political prognosis. No wonder he makes the big bucks.

I'm not sure that I agree with Morris' premise that Condi Rice is the only person who can prevent the long, national nightmare of a Hillary Clinton Presidency. Hillary has a lot of weaknesses that have yet to come to the surface, but must in a national campaign. She is hated by a great plurality of the electorate, and not just on the right either. The moveon.org/Howard Deaniac wing of the Democratic Party does not find her support of the Iraq War very appealing or very credible.

Condi, on the other hand, has one weakness, despite her considerable talent and intelligence. She has never run for office before. The Presidency is rarely an entry leval job, with the exception of successful Generals like Washington, Grant, and Eisenhower.

Still, what a wonder race Condi vs Hillary would be. I agree with Morris' premise to this extent--Condi would almost certainly beat Hillary. An African-American, Conservative woman who has risen on her own talent becoming President would just be too potent an idea to resist. But a man with political experience on the bottom part of the ticket--say George Allen or Mitt Romney--and Condi would win by a landslide, changing the face of American politics forever and extending the Democrats' stay in the wilderness for many more years.

Format: Hardcover
Anyone wanting to understand the chain of events which led to Mitt Romney's stunning landslide victory in the 2012 Presidential election need look no further than this detailed analysis of the pre-Romney years. What makes this book all the more remarkable is that it was written in 2005, well before the infamous presidential cat-fight of 2008.

How do you do it, Mr Morris? Any more fortune-telling like this and we'll start to think you have access to a time machine, or magic beans! Who will be challenging Romney for the Presidency in 2016? I'm sure Mr Morris knows, because he has the Real Polls, and I for one can't wait to read all about it in his next book.

Dick Morris absolutely loathes Hillary Clinton and makes a career out of bashing her whenever he can. But he is convinced she will win the Democratic nomination in 2008 and that she will be a formidable opponent. The only person he thinks can beat her is Condi Rice. I have been saying this for months.

All over America, black leaders are wondering how in hell they are going to explain to their constituents that voting for a white woman from Wellesley will advance the cause of blacks more than voting for a black woman from Birmingham, Alabama. To their credit, many of these leaders will realize that this argument is untenable, a dog that just won't hunt. They will drop Hillary like a hot potato and throw their support behind Condi.

Ironic. The Dems have spent the last 40 years cultivating the black vote. They now get 9 out of 10 black votes. If Condi runs, it could go 9 out of 10 the other way. Think that's an exaggeration? Think again. Recall the jubilation that took place in the "black street" when OJ, a real scoundrel, was acquitted of murder charges. Now imagine the jubilation that will break out in the black street when Condi, a national treasure, is elected the first black President of the United States. The following consideration will be weighed in the mind of every black voter standing in the voting booth on Election Day in 2008: "By my vote I can put the first African-American in the White House; am I going to pass up this opportunity and vote for Hillary instead???"

And then, think about how women will vote. First off, Condi's views on abortion mirror precisely those of the majority of women in America today: she is pro-choice, but in favor of reasonable restrictions on abortion.

The supposition of this book is interesting but what I found fascinating is an analysis of how the electoral process turned out in 2004 and how this possibly foreshadows the future. That, to me, is the great worth. That being said, there rest was interesting too.

There is no doubt that Dick Morris is biased against Hillary. He details many of her failings but, if such a thing could be said, he does so fairly. He points out her strengths and her real dedication to a few causes. Even while disagreeing with those causes, I can respect the viewpoint. In the end, though, this is not somebody I want.

Morris shows a preference for Condoleezza Rice. He enumerates her strengths but he is also honest about some of her failings. Missing something like the breakup of the USSR while being the NSC representative responsible for the USSR is not a minor glitch.

The contrast in characters between these two possible candidates is worthwhile but the real interest is in seeing an insider's view of how the system works. That made the book worthwhile.
