Product description

Character assassination in presidential politics is as American as apple pie. "Anything for a Vote" is a whimsical look at 200+ years of dirty tricks and bad behavior in presidential elections - from John Adams to present day. In the tradition of our popular "Secret Lives of the U.S. Presidents", this book is another rollicking ride through American history. It's also a valuable reminder that history does repeat itself, that lessons can be learned from the past (though usually aren't), and that even some iconic American figures are not above reproach when it comes to the dirtiest game of all - presidential politics.
