✏First Lady President Book Summary : Inder Dan Ratnu''s third novel, First Lady President , is the story of a controversial American First Lady and powerful US Senator''s quest for the sole political prize that eluded her ambitious grasp :the presidency of the United States. Written back in 2003 this book''s story explains how the lady candidate confronts an African American man challenger and defeats him in the primaries only to pick him up as her vice presidential running mate. Later in the main election she confronts another African American man a retired Army chief and a former Secretary of State, a ''liberal'' republican only to defeat by an unprecedented record breaking margin in the US presidential history. Her landslide victory follows, amid unprecedented security measures, her inauguration and her inaugural speech during the day time and an unusual celebration during the night. First Lady President wasI written back in 2003. I sent this book to Barack Obama on 25th April ,2007 . In this book I visualized the rise of a lady candidate in democratic party (named- Beverly Hilton--a former First Lady)in a fictional US presidential election and an African American man(named Charak Sudama-- a Senator from Illinois) as a challenger to her within the same party.In the story of the book impressed and "inspired" by a keynote speech which is based upon "anti-war" theme she picks him up as her vice presidential running mate . The ninth chapter of the book (starting on page 93) is titled "Democratic Convention and Beverly Hilton''s Nomination Acceptance Speech" which is divided into two major portions . The first is a speech by Senator Charak Sudama on "war" issue where he emphasizes that Chirag war (equivalent of Iraq war) was a great blunder and it could have been averted with wisdom,restraint , moderation and toleration on the part of the United States and its republican administration.It is the longest speech in the book . Nearly double the length of the longest speech of Beverly Hilton who is the central character of the book . So much of importance was given to Charak Sudama who was essentially a ''side-character'' in the book only to be mentioned in this chapter .He mentions with an emphasis it was wrong to go in for this war in the very first place . The second part of the above mentioned chapter is comprised of Beverly Hilton''s nomination acceptance speech which is based upon the theme of "CHANGE." She elaborates all the changes she was determined to bring about contrasting them with the policy of the incumbent administration and towards the end of the speech she concludes with an emphasizes (as it is highlighted in bold letters) -- "If I return to the White House ,it will not be a mere CHANGE of gender of the office holder. It will be a genuine CHANGE in the quality of the life of the American people." Therefore "anti-war" and "change" are the two MAJOR points upon which is based A MAJOR and one of the most important chapters of the book; and these were the two major points which Senator Obama never forgot to mention in every speech he delivered during the primaries which were concluded a few weeks ago ,and he is unlikely to forget to mention them in the general elections that are to follow .It is now well known to everyone that Mr Obama''s victory over Hillary Clinton was due to these two major points. Instead of inspiring the lady as given in the book Obama used the "anti-war" stand to prove her wrong and himself right thus making the very base of his election campaign against her. And then what was meant for the lady candidate the idea of "change" he used to promote his own cause . This was how reality differed from the fiction. In the speech on the "anti-war" theme delivered by Charak Sudama on page 98 there is the only major portion which is highlighted in bold letters in the entire speech of eight pages.It reads: "If we can be friendly with Libya without a regime change ,why can''t we be friendly with Syria?If we can well put up with Saudi Arabia with its fanatic leanings and reliance upon an ancient style of autocracy and be their ''ally,'' why can''t we then put up with the fanatics of Iran? Why can''t we at least be ''friendly'' to them if not allies? Or at least avoid dealing with them as ''enemies?"It may be recalled that Mr Obama issued a major foreign policy statement in which he promised to start negotiations with Syria and Iran without any pre-conditions. It appears that this statement of Mr Obama sprang directly from the above para which is a highlighted one in the book .Incidentally ,in this very book five years back I visualized "a white lady" as a vice presidential running mate in the republican party which was revealed true only about ten days back. I had sent the book at the start of the primaries of this election by registered post from India to Mr Obama''s Senate address.It was unlikely that it was lost on the way. It was also equally unlikely that such a relevant book(the only one about this election and about who was to be his greatest rival in the election) could have been thrown into garbage . It certainly must have been read either by the speech writers of Obama or by himself .In either case this book has already "influenced" this US presidential election and I can say with absolute cetainly that the book First Lady President has been used by Sen .Obama to defeat Senator Clinton in the primaries. It is a great honor done to the book by Sen. Obama.

✏To Serve the President Book Summary : Nobody knows more about the duties, the difficulties, and the strategies of staffing and working in the White House than Brad Patterson. In To Serve the President, Patterson combines insider access, decades of Washington experience, and an inimitable style to open a window onto closely guarded Oval Office turf. The fascinating and entertaining result is the most complete look ever at the White House and the people that make it work. Patterson describes what he considers to be the whole White House staff, a larger and more inclusive picture than the one painted by most analysts. In addition to nearly one hundred policy offices, he draws the curtain back from less visible components such as the Executive Residence staff, Air Force One and Marine One, the First Lady's staff, Camp David, and many others—135 separate offices in all, pulling together under often stressful and intense conditions. This authoritative and readable account lays out the organizational structure of the full White House and fills it out the outline with details both large and small. Who are these people? What exactly do they do? And what role do they play in running the nation? Another exciting feature of To Serve the President is Patterson's revelation of the total size and total cost of the contemporary White House—information that simply is not available anywhere else. This is not a kiss-and-tell tale or an incendiary exposé. Brad Patterson is an accomplished public administrator with an intimate knowledge of how the White House really works, and he brings to this book a refreshingly positive view of government and public service not currently in vogue. The U.S. government is not a monolith, or a machine, or a shadowy cabal; above all, it is people, human beings doing the best they can, under challenging conditions, to produce a better life for their fellow citizens. While there are bad apples in every bunch, the vast majority of these people ply their trades honestly and earnestly, often in complete anonymity and for modest compensation. This book illuminates their roles, celebrates their service, and paints an eye-opening picture of how things really work on Pennsylvania Avenue.

✏This Is Not a President Book Summary : Read The Chronicle of Higher Ed Author Interview In This Is Not a President, Diane Rubenstein looks at the postmodern presidency — from Reagan and George H. W. Bush, through the current administration, and including Hillary. Focusing on those seemingly inexplicable gaps or blind spots in recent American presidential politics, Rubenstein interrogates symptomatic moments in political rhetoric, popular culture, and presidential behavior to elucidate profound and disturbing changes in the American presidency and the way it embodies a national imaginary. In a series of essays written in real time over the past four presidential administrations, Rubenstein traces the vernacular use of the American presidency (as currency, as grist for popular biography, as fictional TV material) to explore the ways in which the American presidency functions as a “transitional object” that allows the American citizen to meet or discover the president while going about her everyday life. The book argues that it is French theory — primarily Lacanian psychoanalysis and the radical semiotic theories of Jean Baudrillard — that best accounts for American political life today. Through episodes as diverse as Iran Contra, George H. W. Bush vomiting in Japan, the 1992 Republican convention, the failed nomination of Lani Guinier, and the Iraq War, This Is Not a President brilliantly situates our collective investment in American political culture.
