Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0815412169, Hardcover)Potholm, a professor at Bowdoin and a prominent campaign consultant, here shares his insights into and enthusiasm for the democratic process. According to Potholm, the presidential election of 2000 revealed the strengths of our democratic system, not the weaknesses. What's more, it made for great entertainment. In The Delights of Democracy, Potholm shares his thoughts on why low voter turn-out is not exactly a bad thing, why Clinton was a good Republican president (that's right), how all political parties should be skilled in putting themselves in their opponents' position, how smart politicians can make use of public polling, how people who don't care about the abortion debate are the decisive group in votes on the issue, and more. Filled with examples from his behind-the-scenes political career, Potholm's book informs readers what Americans really mean when they call their country a democracy.
