It's a time of turmoil, with the country mired in an unpopular warfare in Korea and with Senator Joseph McCarthy stirring up worry of a lurking Communist "menace." Racial discrimination is rampant. A woman's position is in the house.

Dwight David ("Ike") Eisenhower. yet whereas the rivals promise "an sincere campaign," their strategists mire the race in scandal and sour innuendo. abruptly Eleanor reveals herself a goal of robust insiders who suggest to wreck her solid name—and Ku Klux Klan assassins devoted to her death—as she will get stuck up in a mad whirl of appearances and political maneuvering . . . and an opportunity come across with a precocious five-year-old named Hillary Rodham.
