Yay!!!! Madame President is done!!! My conclusion: This book was specifically to tell the Ellen Story-her struggle, successes and failures. Completely told through the eyes of herself and people who knew her best. It doesn't have a single objective or critical voice if that's what you're looking for. It serves the purpose of a story for Ellen and of Ellen. But overall it's a very good read.
