I opened We're with Nobody by Alan Huffman and Michael Rejebian after reading the legend on the cover ('Two Insiders Reveal the Dark Side of American Politics'), expecting to read of dirty deeds with the names revealed of dirty doers.

I was wrong. (C'mon, it can happen to everyone some time or other.) This is a well-written book by two men who spend their time investigating a candidate's background or the background of an opponent. Their revelations are general and very few names are listed. There are a few that we all knew about, but most are generalizations about the difficulty they have had in obtaining access to public records!

They always take the time to fact-check allegations that might prove false, misunderstandings or outright lies. Negativity seems to be running at a faster pace the more elections we have. George Constanza, a character in the Jerry Seinfeld show of past years stated, 'It's not a lie if you believe it.'

Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan observed that 'We're all entitled to our own opinion, but not our own facts.' Wisely said. Candidates seem to think their pasts will not catch up with them and, when they do, attack their opponents with more vigor than before.

We're With Nobody is a well-written book by men who spent eighteen years doing boring work that seems to be more and more necessary - and opens up a whole new facet of the election process. Thank you, gentlemen.
