With unprecedented access to capital insiders and with deep understanding of the unspoken rules of the political road, the authorsMorePrizewinning journalists John Harwood and Gerald F. Seib show how today’s Washington power game really works. With unprecedented access to capital insiders and with deep understanding of the unspoken rules of the political road, the authors illuminate what it takes to succeed in the high-stakes game of governing and provide insights and examples for how President Obama might affect real change in Washington. Through stories of party strategists, moneymen, policy-makers, fixers, socialites, lobbyists, spinners, and deal-makers, many of whom now have prominent positions in the Obama administration, Harwood and Seib explore the great political transformations that have altered the relationship between Americans and their government. They showcase both D.C. veterans of the game and the up-and-coming new breed of power brokers who have ushered Capitol Hill into a new age Featuring a compelling new Foreword on how Barack Obama might find success, Pennsylvania Avenue shows how our government really functions and reveals the insiders who make things happen.
