9 Marvin Kitman The Making of the President 1789
Harper Publishing 0060159812 / 9780060159818 Hardcover New New 
This is the true story of how the Mount Vernon machine engineered the first election of George Washington. They gave him the best campaign slogan in history: First in War, First in Peace, first in the hearts of his countrymen, but like most political slogans, it was not all true. As a general, Washington had a few shortcomings. He won the war by losing seemingly all the major battles except the last one. Often his flank was unprotected. In peace, he perfected the art of denying he was a candidate. In this book the author presents and humorously analyzes the true facts of the most underreported presidential election in history.
