The Wicked Wine of Democracyis a frank account by a political operative and practicing lobbyist that the Washington Post labeled "the Democrat's answer to Madison Avenue." In the early 1950s he moved from being a journalist in Seattle to working on the campaigns of such political figures as Warren G. Magnuson, Henry ÒScoopÓ Jackson, Frank Church, William Proxmire, and, finally, John F. Kennedy. After Kennedy's victory, Miller opened a lobbying office on Capitol Hill. In this always revealing and often humorous memoir, "Smilin' Joe" Miller reports on the highlights and back room conversations to give an honest picture of how politics worked. " The Wicked Wine of Democracyhums along like a Shiraz-warmed conversation at the dinner table." -Seattle Times
