More about this book:
In this political memoir, Cheney, who served as a top campaign aide to her father, the vice president, presents a behind-the-scenes look at the high-intensity world of presidential politics and talks for the first time about her life, her family, and her role in the campaigns of 2000 and 2004. As a senior adviser to her father, she was in the middle of every major event of the 2000 and 2004 presidential contests--at the conventions, the debates, and on the trail. Both elections made history--and so did Mary. For the first time, she writes about what it was like to be at the center of her father's campaigns as his daughter, as a member of the senior staff, and, though she never intended it, as a political target for the other side, when Edwards and Kerry made her sexual orientation an issue in televised live debates.--From publisher description.
