Summary (From the publisher):

U.S. senator Charlie Martin is a hot political property, dashing, honorable, irreverent and a decorated Vietnam veteran. The Running Mate follows this brash hero on a wild, exhilarating ride through the minefields of politics as usual.

But as Charlie quickly learns, combat is a cakewalk compared with the battles waged by free men in pursuit of glory and power. For Charlie's political star is beginning to wane ... a bid for the presidency ends in failure ... a young campaign volunteer's father decks him in front of the cameras ... a well-kept secret from Charlie's Vietnam days is revealed ... and a woman has entered his life one who loves him but is appalled by his life's work.

Suddenly Charlie must confront the two greatest challenges of his life a political opponent who has no scruples and a dazzling, unconventional woman who may force him to choose between love and politics. Charlie's dilemma is one that has come to haunt contemporary American politics: Is it possible to be a good politician and a good man?
