Book Description:
'If you are one of that benighted handful of people who isn't wise to Charles Osgood's incisive and humorous look at the foibles of your fellow men, here is your chance to catch up. Try not to foul up again!'
Walter Cronkite

Charles Osgood, one of America's favorite news personalities, offers a hilarious compendium of anecdotes from the last seventy years of presidential campaigns.

With anecdotes from Harry Truman to JFK to George W. Bush, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the White House captures the wit and humor of the campaign trail. Culled from speeches, interviews, press conferences, as well as articles written by and about the candidates no source is left untapped.

From Bob Dole telling reporters after a loss in the primary that 'I slept like a baby every two hours I woke up and cried,' and Barry Goldwater's comment that his talkative opponent Hubert Humphreys 'has been clocked at 275 words a minute with gusts up to 340,' to Adlai Stevenson declaring that 'If I talk over the people's head, Ike must be talking under their feet,' this is the go to source for campaign humor.

Just when America most needs a good laugh, A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the White House makes the seemingly endless race to the presidency a lot more fun.
