Lieferbar innert 2 Wochen
BeschreibungAs the shortest candidate in the 2004 U.S. Presidential contest, Butternut O'Day enjoyed a distinct view of the political process. During her all-too-brief campaign, Butternut corresponded with dozens of business professionals, retailers, service providers, journalists, public personalities and civic leaders. While the resulting letters expose Butternut's naivetéabout Presidential politics (as well as sportfishing, air travel, Botox, boxing, and many other subjects), they also capture a singular moment in the history of the United States by answering numerous provocative questions. Can a wee person (3'9") run for President? Can a wee person (3'9") be taken seriously? Can a wee person (3'9") find a Presidential suite at Motel 6? "Wee, The People: Long Letters from a Short Presidential Candidate is Butternut's endeavor to keep alive the belief that one person--no matter how tall or short, thin or plump, young or old, skilled or untrained--can make a difference in the world.
