A striking aspect of our new centurys first election season has been the vitality American women are injecting into the proceedings -- as candidates, strategists, and voters.

In the 1990s, their influence redefined the nature of politics. Bill Clinton won his elections largely on the strength of womens votes, and Senator Bob Packwood was compelled to resign in the face of womens outrage over his sexual misconduct. So how did we get here?From journalists Eleanor Clift and Tom Brazaitis comes a story of passion, determination, and triumph.

They chronicle womens remarkable progress -- from their coffee-fetching days to their ability to make or break candidates in the new millennium -- in chapters such as A Call to Arms and The Rules for Women. From there, the authors examine todays prospects and look ahead in The Governor Gap, Hurrying History, and Women in Waiting, identifying those most likely to have an impact on the future.

Highlighting all the key players, from Elizabeth Dole and Dianne Feinstein to Hillary Clinton and Christine Todd Whitman, the book also introduces up-and-comers with superstar potential. And in the prescient Coda: A How-to for Women, Clift and Brazaitis provide twelve essential tips for women seeking higher office.Certain to spark controversy, Madam President is an unrivaled look at the new political world.
