“I would love for my younger fans to read What Will It Take to Make a Woman President? by Marianne Schnall. It’s a collection of interviews and essays by great women, including Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, and Melissa Etheridge. They will inspire you to become a better leader.” —Beyoncé Prompted by a question from her eight-year-old daughter during the 2008 election of Barack Obama—“Why haven’t we ever had a woman president?”—Marianne Schnall set out on a journey to find the answer. A widely published writer, author, and interviewer, and the Executive Director of Feminist.com, Schnall began looking at the issues from various angles and perspectives, gathering viewpoints from influential people from all sectors. What Will It Take to Make A Woman President? features interviews with politicians, public officials, thought leaders, writers, artists, and activists in an attempt to discover the obstacles that have held women back and what needs to change in order to elect a woman into the White House. With insights and personal anecdotes from Sheryl Sandberg, Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, Nancy Pelosi, Nicholas Kristof, Melissa Etheridge, and many more, this book addresses timely, provocative issues involving women, politics, and power. With a broader goal of encouraging women and girls to be leaders in their lives, their communities, and the larger world, Schnall and her interviewees explore the changing paradigms occurring in politics and in our culture with the hope of moving toward meaningful and effective solutions—and a world where a woman can be president.

This book traces the 'astrological history' of US Presidential elections from 1948 to 2012. It considers the horoscopes of the 24 presidential candidates, the planetary periods they were running on the election days, and the planetary transits on those days, trying to glean what astrological conditions determined the outcomes of those elections. Insights drawn from those effort are applied to the 2016 elections scenario, and probable result upcoming presidential elections projected.What stands out in this book is not just the plethora of astrological data but the clear delineation of roles played by different planets in determining the results of a contest between rival candidates. Signs and astrological houses had their significant say too, and that has been well-documented.Astrological analyses have been derided by many as just mumbo jumbo bereft of scientific basis for its conclusions. This is a subject that has been debated for long, and we are not going into that ourselves too. But we know for sure that the record of 'astrological forecasting' are not any worse than economic analyses and forecasting backed up as they are by impressive intellectual efforts and a vast body of diverse information.As we studied the birth charts of so many presidential elections' winners and losers, we were surprised by the extent by which mere points in space, as represented by planets, signs and 'houses', could indeed impact the results of the contests. And most importantly the ' nodes', which is nothing but a point of intersection of earth's and Moon's orbits of rotation around the Sun. The north node in particular exerts quite some political' influence.We do not claim to have answers to all questions. But 'it seems to be working'. This is testified to by Carl Jung, Johannes Kepler, Carl Sagan, Rebecca West and many others- all men and women of no mean intellect. 'Proof of the pudding is in the eating'. This book is a pudding, an accretion to a vast body of delicacies already in the pantry of Vedic Astrology.

The American President is an enthralling account of American presidential actions from the assassination of William McKinley in 1901 to Bill Clinton's last night in office in January 2001. William Leuchtenburg, one of the great presidential historians of the century, portrays each of the presidents in a chronicle sparkling with anecdote and wit. Leuchtenburg offers a nuanced assessment of their conduct in office, preoccupations, and temperament. His book presents countless moments of high drama: FDR hurling defiance at the "economic royalists" who exploited the poor; ratcheting tension for JFK as Soviet vessels approach an American naval blockade; a grievously wounded Reagan joking with nurses while fighting for his life. This book charts the enormous growth of presidential power from its lowly state in the late nineteenth century to the imperial presidency of the twentieth. That striking change was manifested both at home in periods of progressive reform and abroad, notably in two world wars, Vietnam, and the war on terror. Leuchtenburg sheds light on presidents battling with contradictory forces. Caught between maintaining their reputation and executing their goals, many practiced deceits that shape their image today. But he also reveals how the country's leaders pulled off magnificent achievements worthy of the nation's pride.

On November 6, 2012, voters went to the polls to vote in the most highly contested (and most expensive) presidential election in U.S. history. There was more attention paid to a few so-called “swing states” than ever before because everyone realized the election would be won or lost in the Electoral College, not in the general election. This book, written by a college professor, analyzes every presidential election in the country’s history with special focus on the role played by the Electoral College. He describes how duels and scandals and wars and secret deals contributed to a win or a loss for presidential candidates throughout U.S. history. Dr. Murdock provides fascinating details about how the Electoral College was created at the 1787 Constitutional Convention as a compromise with the slave states and the smaller-population states, and how it has distorted the election process ever since. He also describes how the election process has evolved, how political parties have learned to target Electoral College votes instead of the popular vote. As he says, targeting swing states has become the “new” way to win presidential elections. In the final chapters, he analyzes, in detail, the presidential election of 2012 and predicts how it will influence all future elections.

This book addresses the peculiarities of the current presidential election system not yet addressed in other publications. It argues that any rules for electing a President that may have a chance to replace the current ones should provide an equal representation of states as equal members of the Union, and of the nation as a whole. This book analyzes the National Popular Vote plan and shows that this plan may violate the Supreme Court decisions on the equality of votes cast in statewide popular elections held to choose state electors. That is, the National Popular Vote plan may violate the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment. The book proposes a new election system in which the will of the states and the will of the nation as a whole are determined by direct popular elections for President and Vice President in the 50 states and in D.C. This system a) would elect President a candidate who is the choice of both the nation as a whole and of the states as equal members of the Union, b) would let the current system elect a President only if the nation as a whole and the states as equal members of the Union fail to agree on a common candidate, and c) would encourage the candidates to campaign nationwide. The second edition has been updated to include a proposal on how to make established non-major party presidential candidates and independent candidates welcome participants in national televised presidential debates with the major-party candidates.

In these last weeks leading up to the 2016 U.S. presidential election, millions of disaffected Americans still feel like they are being forced to choose between the lesser of two evils. They must cast their votes as a way to save America by blocking one candidate, rather than propelling America forward by supporting a candidate who really aligns with their values. In search of better options, these frustrated throngs are lighting up social media with the hashtag #WriteIn16. This book answers their call. "#WriteIn16 A Field Guide to the 100 Most Presidential Americans" speaks to every American who secretly wishes -- or openly agitates -- to vote for someone other than the two major-party candidates this November 8th. Co-authored by an east coast digital media strategist and a west coast business school professor, this book informs and stimulates conversation about the American qualities that make a person worthy to hold the most powerful and important position in the world. Using the G.R.E.A.T.(c) framework, this book rates the 100 American leaders who exemplify the five traits of being presidential: Global Vision, Reach, Ethics, Accomplishment, and Talent. Selected from a wide range of fields and backgrounds, the views of these would-be presidents range across the political gamut, from progressive Democrats and conservative Republicans to Greens and Independent 3rd- party candidates. From moderates and apolitical pragmatists to idealists, they all possess extraordinary qualities. We believe that voters in 2016 should feel empowered, not disenfranchised. In most states, Americans can write in a vote for someone we truly deem worthy to be president, regardless of who is on the ballot. This book will show you how and get you talking about whose name to choose.

Victoria Pierce is not the person she claims to be. As a beautiful farm girl, living in desolation on the Oklahoma range, she escapes her draconian "parents," hitchhikes to San Francisco, and enlists in the United States Marine Corps. After surviving the rigors of basic training, Victoria is promoted through the ranks from Private to Brigadier General. Throughout her evolution, General Pierce and United States Senator Sam Eagan carry on a torrid love affair. Victoria joins Sam's campaign for president, first as his military consultant and later as his vice presidential candidate. No one, not even Sam Eagan, is aware of Victoria's clandestine past, except for one anonymous and demented caller. During the presidential campaign, Victoria befriends reporter Grace Brandon, but Grace becomes increasingly suspicious of Victoria's urban sophistication which belies an agrarian past. This leads Grace into investigative reporting that eventually unravels the truth about Victoria's past. However, before Grace can get to the bottom of the story, Sam and Victoria win the presidential election. Not long afterwards, Victoria ascends to the office of acting president under the 25th amendment. Grace finally completes her investigation and convinces her editor to release a bombshell of a story. America is shocked. Victoria reacts. Will the story require Victoria to resign or can she survive the revelation?
