If you are sick and tired of the depressing news day in and day out, this book and Buckley's humor is for you. Every time a supreme court openning occurs, in real life, we go through the same game of Advise and Conscent. This book will give you some time to laugh during these hectic news times and the current, as well as past and future, climate in Washington and our "so called leaders" and the increadible distance we have come from the founding fathers concept of government and how it should function.
Listen to this when you are down and need lifting. I am embarking on listening to more books by Buckley (have just started "This is no way to treat a First Lady" - also very funny). He first came to attention, for me at least, on CBS's Sunday Morning show when he was interviewed. Somebody has to be humorous about our "clowns" in DC. Who else has the ability to express wit other than the son of William Buckley. Have Fun !!!!!

The truth is I have read this novel at least 3 times since it came out. When I saw Anne Heche narrated it I knew she was the perfect choice for the snarky Pepper Cartwright. It is impossible to exagerate the synergy of wtiting and narration she delivers.
There are so many wonderful characters in this book, beginnig with Pepper, a reluctant POTUS, a wise and gracious presidential advisor, a narcissistic Senator and a couple of unforgettable spouses. The banter is witty and smart. The politics are put in the proper perspective.
5 Stars accross the board mens I will listen to this often.
