What "one" book best characterizes this failed administration ?
I am looking for a book as a "gift" to one of those 39%-ers that just need a bit more evidence. If the author has "true conservative" credentials that would be a bonus.

Thanks in advance.

2. Howard Zinn "People's History of the United States"
Not really what you asked for, but it should do the job.

5. I suggest Worse Than Watergate by John Dean.
It was written a couple of years ago, but actually lays out exactly what's happening now!

10. I agree it was excellent! If you listen to John Dean on any
interviews today, he hasn't changed his predictions on any of it either!

He was in the position of seeing and knowing what was going on in the Nixon WH, and he sees a lot of the same things now.

11. The Bush Hater's Handbook
Don't let the title scare you off--this is the best-documented book in the bunch when it comes to this failure of an administration

Organized by topic. If you want ammo...
