James Carville rips Republicans a new one....Hugely entertaining at the time of its publication during the zenith of the Clinton Administration, before Lewinsky and Whitewater and Kenneth Starr. ( )

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0679769781, Paperback)

James Carville, chief strategist of Clinton's 1992 War Room, puts the Democrats on the offensive again with this no-holds-barred response to the Republican "Contract With America". Witty, savvy, and just plain smart, this may be the most provocative book of the 1996 campaign season.

'They are wrong and we are right and I'm going to prove it to you!' -Harry S. Truman, Democratic National Convention, 1948. One of Washington's most prominent Democratic strategists and co-author of the New York Times bestseller All's Fair offers a timely, accessible, and entertaining response to the GOP's Contract with America, just in time for primary season. With the Republican Congress blasting away at the federal government, James Carville, a top advisor to President Clinton, counterattacks.
