Had the potential to be a good book but somehow it became ratchet and about about ex-girlfriends and how ghetto people act instead of about African-American politicians. Also didn't like the non-ending ending.
Very funny in some parts, though the back half of the book dragged a bit. Overall, enjoyed the insiders perspective on the campaign trail.
