About this title:

Synopsis: The Wicked Wine of Democracy is a frank account by a political operative and practicing lobbyist who in the early 1950s went from being a journalist in Seattle to working on the campaigns of such important political figures as Warren G. Magnuson, Henry “Scoop” Jackson, Frank Church, William Proxmire, and, finally, John F. Kennedy. He was so successful in managing the media for campaigns across the country that in 1957 the Washington Post labeled him “the Democrat's answer to Madison Avenue.” After Kennedy's victory, Miller opened a lobbying office on Capitol Hill and took on clients as diverse as the United Steelworkers of America, the Western Forest Industries Association, and the Marine Engineers Beneficial Association. In this always revealing and often humorous memoir, Miller reports on the highlights and backroom conversations from political campaigns, labor negotiations, and lobbying deals to give an honest picture of how politics worked over his forty-year career in the nation's Capitol.

From the Publisher: "Rarely does a memoir deal so candidly and engagingly with political campaigns and influence peddling. He provides illuminating, and often delightful, vignettes of such political heavyweights as Lyndon Johnson, Magnuson, Kennedy, William Proxmire, Robert Byrd, Quentin Burdick, and Barry Goldwater. Miller's insider accounts of legislative battles and political campaigns are invariably absorbing and illustrative of the way that politics really works. His frankness allows him to use his reminiscences on campaigning and lobbying to reflect on ethics, principles, and political ambiguities."- LeRoy Ashby, author of Fighting the Odds: The Life of Senator Frank Church

"For more than 50 years, Joe Miller worked behind the scenes in the Pacific Northwest and Washington, D.C., as a journalist, campaign insider, lobbyist, and fixer. Along the way, he was an astute, acerbic, and highly interested observer of the political process." - Stephen Ponder, author of Managing the Press
