Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the early jockeying and the first candidate announcements to the final tally on Election Day, selecting the president is an exciting, sometimes bewildering, and ever evolving process that dominates American politics for up to two years. Choosing the President 2004 is a thorough yet accessible and completely nonpartisan look at the players and events, explaining every important landmark on the road to the White House including: publicly visible events such as primaries, caucuses, and conventions; the strategies that guide fund-raising, campaigning, and spin doctoring; institutions that include the national parties, governmental oversight committees, and public-policy organizations; voting rights and voter behavior; the role of the media and the effects of polls and reporting; the actual laws that govern how we choose the president - from the Constitution to the latest campaign-finance rules

While casting a vote is every citizen's right, casting an informed vote is every citizen's responsibility. This completely up-to-date and fully revised guide will enable every citizen to cast that informed vote.

Book News Annotation:

The League of Women Voters presents its layperson's guide to the presidential election process, hoping to promote a more informed electorate. They offer a brief overview of the state of presidential voting, profile the types of candidates and their campaign strategies, describe the role of the parties and other "behind-the- scenes" powers, discuss the power of media and money. The remainder of the work describes the process of the campaign and election from the exploratory committee, through the primaries and caucuses, the conventions, the general election campaign, and election day.
