An idealistic young campaign manager learns the basics of dirty politics on the campaign trail of a Presidential candidate.

ABSTRACT
Stephen Meyers, a gifted young communicator with an earnest belief in the messages he sells for a living, works as the junior campaign manager for populist Pennsylvania governor and Democratic Presidential candidate Mike Morris. When he is offered a job by the manager of rival candidate Ted Pullman's campaign and begins a sexual relationship with the daughter of the chairman of the Democratic National Committee, however, Meyers embarks on a long-running crisis of conscience that looks to alter his perception of his line of work.
