A brilliant young political scientist, Jack Gance has a way with numbers. And his expertise in the budding art of poll-taking makes him an indispensable asset to Chicago Machine lawyer Patrick Bayley in the 1960 presidential election. That's enough to catapult Jack into the heart of the political arena: Washington, D.C.
But as he becomes a powerful White House insider, Jack soon finds it impossible to stay untainted and free of entanglements in the deal-laden world of D.C. politics. Through history and memory, Jack Gance chronicles forty years in the life of an idealist, whose slow inexorable education in the art of compromise shapes him into someone quite different.
