Insider's Obama campaign tale

December 05, 2008|associated press

Barack Obama's campaign manager, David Plouffe, is writing a book about the historic election victory and has retained Washington attorney Robert Barnett, Obama's literary representative, to shop the proposal to publishers.

The book has been tentatively titled "The Audacity to Win," a reference to Obama's million-selling book "The Audacity of Hope." Having helped manage one of the most sophisticated and highly praised campaigns ever, Plouffe plans not only an inside look at the Obama run but also advice for how to manage a large organization.

Plouffe, 41, hopes to have the book ready for release in the fall of 2009. He said it will be high on tactics, and low on gossip, with an inevitable critique of the rival campaigns.
