This book was written in 1978 and set in a future 1988. I first read it in the mid-80s when it was still describing a possible future. I've reread it many times since then, usually during a presidential election cycle. I've gotten something different out of it with each rereading.

The book is the story of A.L. Levine, the first Jewish man elected to the Presidency. (The book ends with his inauguration, so it's not technically about the first Jewish President.)

A.L. 'accidentally' becomes a candid
One the best unknown political classics, as far as I am concerned. Very enjoyable. I have read it several time and pick up on new themes each time. Highly recommended,,
