'Yes, it used to be a campaign. yet simply what was once it the folks in the market feared and hated loads? now not absolutely the candidate. He was once a good guy. Or was once that it?'
With Tom Fool (1962) David Stacton concluded a triptych of novels drawn from the heritage of the United States. For this ultimate panel he grew to become his eye on politics. The titular protagonist is a fictional rendering of Wendell Wilkie, not going Republican challenger to Franklin D. Roosevelt within the presidential election of 1940. As 'Tom idiot' endures an epic campaigning journey of thirty-one states - assisted (or dogged) by means of his political consultant 'Sideboard' and husband-and-wife PR experts the Pattersons - he reveals himself uncomfortably reminded that the USA, in its vastness and contradictions, is a couple of state, and a different conundrum to at least one who will be President.
