It was worth the wait (of 30+ years) to finish this one. The "fifth estate" running the country and controlling the world. Scary and yet so very plausible! And even though it was dated for the 1972 and 1976 elections, it could be just as believable today. I know the ending was left rather open-ended, but that's all to the good! Because I would hate to see what eventually happens to Brad (and Elda).
