With FLEECED, their June 2008 attack on Barack Obama, congressional corruption, liberal tax policies, teachers unions, and much more, political analysts Dick Morris and Eileen McGann scored their biggest bestseller ever-debuting at #2 on the New York Times bestseller list and riding high on the list for eight weeks and counting. Thanks to massive, continual exposure on The O Reilly Factor, Hannity & Colmes, and the other Fox News programs-and the broad popularity of Dick's syndicated column and exploding mailing list-FLEECED is on track to double the sales of their previous bestseller, OUTRAGE.
In 2009, Morris and McGann will return with their biggest book yet. In proven fashion, they ll take on a barrage of hot-button pocketbook issues of immediate interest to the American people-from oil prices, real estate, and the faltering state of the economy to the ongoing corruption in Washington. But the big opportunity here is to get Dick and Eileen's first take on the new administration-and, whoever wins the 2008 election, there's bound to be plenty to talk about.
If Barack Obama wins, conservative readers will be hopping mad. Expect a full accounting of Obama's all-important first 100 days in office-from his surely liberal cabinet appointments, to his handling of federal spending and new taxes, to the truth about his left-leaning policies.
If John McCain wins, conservative readers will be deeply suspicious. Will McCain stay true to the GOP's small-government principles and conservative social agenda-or will his old "maverick" ways resurface, selling out the party and the country?
Either way, the new Morris/McGann book promises to be their biggest yet: the hottest straight-talk team in politics taking on the first new administration since 2000-and all the issues that readers all over America care about most.
