The Secret Plot to Make TED KENNEDY President:

Inside the Real Watergate Conspiracy

The Book is about the politics of the Watergate scandal-and how political forces were deployed to drive a president from office less than two years after his 61% re-election victory.

Drawing on internal documents, the author details how the crimes of Watergate were solved well before any special prosecutor was appointed, and how Kennedy Democrats wrenched control of the case from career prosecutors,

  • Delayed the pending indictments, and
  • Launched new investigations designed
    • To destroy the Nixon presidency,
    • To cripple the Republican campaign fund raising apparatus, and
    • To investigate Senator Kennedy's potential opponents in his upcoming run for the presidency.

The book also shows how the Kennedy hijack of the Watergate scandal pioneered the politics of personal destruction-and details how American politics are still being practiced and influenced by those who developed their techniques on staffs of the Watergate Special Prosecution Force, the Ervin Committee and the House Judiciary Impeachment Inquiry.

The book turns a lot of conventional wisdom regarding Watergate on its head. And lots of Watergate heroes are going to have considerable explaining to do about their roles-including Senator Ted Kennedy, John Dean, Bob Woodward, and a young lawyer named Hillary Rodham.
