Ill make a point of never doing that again, Stone said. Ann arrived and was given a martini. Stone, she said tentatively, I think we may have made a wrong move. What did we do? Stone asked. We got Marty Stanton into the newspapers with a movie star on his arm. Why wasnt that a good idea? Well, there was an overnight poll and Marty picked up eight points on Kate. Theyre tied now. What?more...

Hey, Jake. Hey, Billy. Hows it going? Billy was looking around but couldnt see Harry Gregg anywhere. Its going good. You did a good job breaking in Harry. I thank you for it. Its taken a load off, you know? Where is Harry? Billy asked.more...

He didnt tell me that 60 Minutes was going to run it. Oh, shit, Charles said. He grabbed the phone and called home; the number was busy. He tried Barbaras cell phone, but it went directly to voice mail. Sweetheart, he said, call me immediately! He hung up just as Safer returned. Some years ago, Safer was saying, a prominent trial attorney from Santa Fe married a woman called Barbara.more...

Youre rich enough to buy a nice house in Georgetownthe women will be all over you. Think about it. Ill have no seniority in the Senate. Your stature in the party will get you good committee assignments, and the press will always want to know what you have to say, especially the TV reporters. Youll be a regular on the Sunday-morning shows. Do you know something I dont, Dick? About whos slipping in the delegation? Nobody has told me anything, I just know what I know. Its time for you to decide what you want to do with the rest of your life.more...

He stalked across the room and out the door. Ann came into the room. He looked very angry, Director. Did you tell him to go fuck himself? Pretty much, Kate replied. Stone hosted Kate and Ann for lunch on his poolside patio. Ann had billed it as a strategy session. Whew! Kate said, blowing upward to clear her forehead of a strand of hair.more...

He decided not to tell her Gregg was dead. Im a little confused, Barbara said. Why would you come all the way to Napa to ask me about the explosion of an airplane? The airplane belonged to your ex-husband, Ed Eagle, Morales said. And Ed wasnt harmed? No, he had not yet arrived at the airport. How unfortunate, she said with a smile. I take it you and your ex-husband are not on good terms.more...

What does that mean? It means hes seriously thinking about not running it. Pam is beside herself, of course, but its her bosss decision, and hes leaning toward not running it. How can he be pushed all the way? Thats my job, Charles, and Im working hard at it. Ive told the man that Barbara feels she was sandbagged, which she was, and that if the second part of the interview runs, she will consider legal action. He knows that Barbara has deep pockets and that a successful lawsuit could break his company, and Ive also been feeding his concerns about the reaction of the arts community in San Francisco, which depends so heavily on Barbara for large contributions.more...

Most of the people who made it possible for me to be elected to this job, then be reelected, are in this room. I thank you, one and all, for every word of advice you gave, every favor you extended, every dollar you contributed, and every push you gave me toward the presidency. I also want to thank many of my opponents for the office who, with their soaring oratory and loose grip on the facts, made me look better than I had a right to. I could never have done it without their help. Big laugh. Far too many of my best friends were unable to be here tonight, summoned to a higher calling. First among them is Senator Ben Carr, that master legislator and brilliant senator at whose knee I learned nearly enough to get me through my Senate years and to the White House. His like will not be heard again on the Senate floor, and I still miss him.more...

That, Kate thought, is the worst possible ticet I can think of. Im sure your reasoning is sound, Marty. And with you in the wings, waiting to take over at State, well, that would be like having another running mate. Youd announce me for State before the general election? I dont think that would be presumptuous, given your stature. Did you consider a woman as a running mate?more...
