I first read this many years ago. I thought about it during this presidential campaign madness. It's still entertaining and almost contemporary.

In this decades old political novel, Micheael Halberstam has captured some essential truths about politics, politicians, race, antisemitism, and America. It's a fascinating book because the issues that he illustrates are still with us in 2008. Levine has echos of Obama, and there is plenty of Clinton there too. The best part is his understanding of people, their motivations, strengths and weaknesses.

Yes, I liked it. It was a quirky political satire about the election of the first Jewish President. However, I also found it to be uneven: three quarters of the way through the book, it took on a darker political thriller tone. That tone, in and of itself was not bad; I just wish Mr. Halberstam had introduced that element earlier in the book and stayed with it. Also, some characters appeared early on and then did not re-appear again until near the end of the book. Furthermore, the actual campaign, the interaction with his opponent and the American Constituency was almost non-existent. He also makes passing mention of certain national events, but he never really explains them and, at least this reader, was left a bit confused. Overall, it was a fun, if bumpy ride.
