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 Charlies political star is beginning to wane ...

a bid for the presidency ends in failure ... a young campaign volunteers father decks him -- in front of the cameras ... a well-kept secret from Charlies Vietnam days is revealed ... and a woman has entered his life -- one who loves him but is appalled by his lifes 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. Charlies dilemma is one that has come to haunt contemporary American politics: Is it possible to be a good politician and a good man?
