9781416525639: Winning Right


If Washington politics is Hardball, Ed Gillespie shows how the game is really played!

With a fresh, new insider's perspective, the former chairman of the Republican National Committee draws from lessons learned in more than twenty years of campaign strategy and national policy debate -- most especially from his role at the heart of the historic and groundbreaking 2004 presidential election -- to reveal how the game of politics is played on its highest level. In a frank and engaging narrative, he looks inside the George W. Bush presidency and beyond, to discuss such topics as

- A political code of ethics and playing by the rules

- Successes and failures in campaign planning and execution

- The role of old and new media

- The battle for the Supreme Court

- Hot-button issues

- The future of the GOP -- and how to win right in 2008.

About the Author:

Ed Gillespie is a founder and cochairman of Quinn Gillespie & Associates, a bipartisan public affairs firm that provides strategic counsel, government relations, and communications services to corporations, trade associations, and issue-based coalitions. He was a principal drafter of the 1994 "Contract with America" and editor of the New York Times bestseller by the same name. One of the most prominent and successful strategists in the Republican Party, he was general strategist for Elizabeth Dole's 2002 Senate campaign, and was a top aide to former House Majority Leader Dick Armey of Texas and former RNC chairman Haley Barbour, now governor of Mississippi. Gillespie served as chairman of the Republican National Committee from 2003 to 2005.

From Publishers Weekly:

The former Republican National Committee chairman channels his inner Sun Tzu in this memoir-cum-campaign primer, serving up pithy lessons learned on various campaigns; dealings with then-Supreme Court nominees John Roberts, Samuel Alito and the ill-fated Harriet Miers; and conservative talking points on familiar issues like health care, immigration and national security. Unfortunately, maxims like "strategy should define tactics, not the other way around," "a picture's worth a thousand press releases," and "loyalty, loyalty, loyalty" have less to do with superior GOP campaigning tactics than they do with plain old politicking. Gillespie's work with some Republican leading lights-including Elizabeth Dole, Karl Rove and President George W. Bush-might lead readers to expect more seminal insights, if not a couple of savory back-stage tidbits. But the tales here are pedestrian, jumping from receiving lines to campaign buses to Washington power lunches, giving superficial confirmation to what readers already know, including the fact that Rove "is the hardest driving force of the Bush administration." Before he stepped down from the post in 2005, Gillespie told the president, "I will never embarrass you as your former RNC chairman." In this volume, he stays tediously true to his word.
