“It’s probably best to begin a discussion of Nicolle Wallace’s flawed but fascinating new White House novel with a bit of background. Wallace served as communications director in George W. Bush’s White House and was a senior adviser in John McCain’s 2008 campaign for president, during which she clashed repeatedly with McCain’s running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
A year ago, Wallace published her first novel, “Eighteen Acres,” which featured four women: Republican President Charlotte Kramer; Melanie Kingston, the president’s friend and chief of staff; Dale Smith, an ambitious television reporter who was having an affair with the president’s estranged husband; and Tara Meyers, the Democratic attorney general of New York, whom President Kramer made her surprise choice for the vice-presidential nomination when she sought reelection. The novel presented Tara as tacky, tasteless and obnoxious, although an effective campaigner, and she could only be taken as Wallace’s vitriolic — but not necessarily inaccurate — portrait of Palin.”
