MY THOUGHTS:  This was a very enlightening book for me.  I never realized all the intricate things a politician goes through once they are in office.  Not to mention all the planning and scheduling that the wives of these politicians go through.  This book is also full of political history.   Lindy Boggs was there to see it all.  She also raised 3 children while juggling a life as a politicians wife.  When she lost her husband, Hale, in a plane crash, she stepped right in to his shoes and ran for congress.  This is a very interesting book, if you want to know more about the history of Washington this is the book for you.  I give this book 5......

This book is also for 2 of my reading challenges.....
