Do you think that Mitt Romney’s “47%” comment caused him to lose the 2012 presidential election? Or that Richard Nixon lost the 1960 presidential election because he sweated on TV? Maybe John Kerry was “swiftboated” out of the presidency in 2004? Think again! In Predicting the Next President, political analyst and historian Allan J. Lichtman presents thirteen historical factors, or “keys” (four political, seven performance, and two personality), that determine the outcome of presidential elections. In the chronological, successful application of these keys to every election since 1860, Lichtman dispels much of the mystery behind electoral politics and challenges many traditional assumptions. An indispensable resource for political junkies!

Presidential earmarks? Perhaps even more so than their counterparts in Congress, presidents have the motive and the means to politicize spending for political power. But do they? In Presidential Pork, John Hudak explains and interprets presidential efforts to control federal spending and accumulate electoral rewards from that power. The projects that members of Congress secure for their constituents certainly attract attention. Political pundits still chuckle about the "Bridge to Nowhere." But Hudak clearly illustrates that while Congress claims credit for earmarks and pet projects, the practice is alive and well in the White House, too. More than any representative or senator, presidents engage in pork barrel spending in a comprehensive and systematic way to advance their electoral interests. It will come as no surprise that the White House often steers the enormous federal bureaucracy to spend funds in swing states. It is a major advantage that only incumbents enjoy. Hudak reconceptualizes the way in which we view the U.S. presidency and the goals and behaviors of those who hold the nation's highest office. He illustrates that presidents and their White Houses are indeed complicit in distributing presidential pork—and how they do it. The result is an illuminating and highly original take on presidential power and public policy.

The hilarious tale of a Secret Service agent’s professional and romantic misadventures, by the author of Begin to Exit Here. Doyle Coldiron is just a lovesick guy at heart, who happens to have a submachine gun under his blue blazer. Working for the Secret Service, it’s his job to protect the president—but after a disgruntled White House chef decides to serve Spam at a state dinner, Doyle fails to throw himself in front of the wretched luncheon meat, and gets demoted. What’s really got Doyle down, though, is his unrequited passion for the president’s already-married secretary. To console himself, he plans covert games of “spookball” against the CIA, and drowns his sorrows at a Washington bar. However, his chance for redemption just may arise as he confronts a series of events involving terrorists, animal rights activists, a Stealth kite, and a tipsy ambassador who plays Cole Porter tunes . . . From John Welter—described by Joseph Heller, author of Catch-22, as “among the wittiest American novelists writing today”—this is a rollicking look at life, love, and lunacy behind the scenes in DC. “Welter retains firm control of the true story in his novel: one man’s search for love in the ’90s. Doyle’s quest for romantic and spiritual love is bittersweet, surprisingly poignant, and, guided by Welter’s sure hand, always emotionally true. Sometimes silly and frequently downright strange, this novel is full of insights into modern love that sneak up on the reader amid a lot of pleasantly off-kilter zaniness, making Night of the Avenging Blowfish a fun and satisfying read.” —Kirkus Reviews
