There's no way William A. Cozzano can lose the upcoming presidential election. He's a likable midwestern governor with one insidious advantagge. An advantage provided by a shadowy group of backers. A biochip in his head hardwires him to a computerized polling system. The mood of the electorate is channeled directly into his brain. Forget issues. Forget policy. He's more than the perfect candidate. He's a special effect.

This book was a great disapointment to me. It took way to long to get to the point (about 300 pages of background history). The technology showed is indeed very interesting, but this alone doesn't make the book good.
Each character only have one motivation (be it bad or good). Some have no character flaws, others only have such flaws.
On the last 150 pages the history is a bit rushed. Keep in mind that there is no word about the election day on a book about an election. There must to be something wrong with that.
