Product Overview

Politics of Hope: A Failed Strategy is a true story of a political science professor jumping into the very real political arena. After years of classroom teaching and his concern about individual apathy and ignorance, as well as the electorate''s discontent with the current political system, Professor Tom Caiazzo ran for U.S. House of Representatives in 2002 for District #3 in Texas. Facing a career politician that was an entrenched incumbent, Professor Caiazzo knew that his chances were slim to none. However, with unbridled energy and an unprecedented campaign strategy, Professor Caiazzo offered a campaign of fresh ideas with energy and enthusiasm for all the people. Unfortunately, the local political party and other factors, including the 9/11 tragedy worked against Professor Caiazzo''s desire to "shock the world." This book presents his story and an honest, personal look at the inner-workings, institutions, factors, and major players of a federal campaign. Professor Caiazzo''s grassroots effort offered the electorate "hope," but in the end "hope" was a failed strategy.
