NEW YORK (AP) Barack Obama's campaign manager, David Plouffe, is writing a book about the historic election victory and has retained Washington attorney Robert Barnett, Obama's literary representative, to shop the proposal to publishers.
The book has been tentatively titled, "The Audacity To Win," a reference to Obama's million-selling "The Audacity of Hope." Having helped manage one of the most sophisticated and highly praised campaigns ever, Plouffe plans not only an inside look at the Obama run but also advice for how to manage a large organization.
"Hopefully, there will be some lessons on how to put together a three-quarters of a billion dollar operation," Plouffe said Wednesday, adding that the book would be high on tactics, and low on gossip, with an inevitable critique of the rival campaigns.
"I don't have a huge interest in scoring points, but there was a difference in strategy and approach," he said of the organization of Republican John McCain.
He will also write about the intense Democratic primary race against Hillary Rodham Clinton, who has since been picked by Obama to be secretary of state.
"We had enormous respect for that campaign," Plouffe said, although he expects the narrative would inevitably touch upon "strategic mistakes."
Plouffe, 41, hopes to have the book ready for release in the fall of 2009. Barnett expects to begin meeting with publishers this week.

Hmmm . . . he's a traitor, a terrorist, and a communist, but Ayers is one heckuva ghostwriter. I wonder . . .
Subtitle “ the audacity to take money from citizens of foreign countries to fund a campaign”
Why waste the time re-writing the Wizard of Oz... B.H.O. is the man behind the curtain with “magic” that’s nothing but smoke and mirrors.
Good now maybe Plouffay will stop spamming us.
Even Obama is still sending give me $$$ e mails.
You too can own your very own fleece jacket with the emblem Obama for America...(reflux burn)
“The Audacity to Win”
“The inside story of the purchasing of the Presidency with so much frigging money, you’ll never believe it”
Toss in a personal tax cut with every purchase and it may be a seller.
He should call it, “The Audacity to Pass Ourselves Off As Americans.”
Well, that will be on the table in Books A Million, over in the reduced, PLEASE BUY THIS CRAP table, in the 2d week. All Obama’s books are over there. No one buying that crap around here.
The book should be named “The Audacity of Hype”
subtitle: Leftist Con-artists Ride Media Wave to the White House
You know, he could actually do that, and the likes of Olbershit and O'Really would give it a pass.
I bet it will be a real page turner. Not
............The Audacity of Hype.....................
Pimping an absolute Zer0!
He’d better wait until after Friday, December 5, 2008 to begin writing it.
He may need to write a different ending.
