  • About the Book

    “The crowded field of Republican candidates running for President in 2016 has some pundits concerned about whether so many dissenting points of view might polarize moderate voters and damage the GOP’s chance of regaining the White House. A new book, The Republican Dream Team of 2016©, reimagines the political process in a way that would enable conservative and moderate voters to rally behind a unified “Dream Team” to win.


    The book draws upon research conducted by Spectrem Group, a ground-breaking research and consulting firm, which identifies the issues most important to conservative and moderate voters. This research, combined with the authors’ deep knowledge of systems and change management, fosters an innovative approach to elections and the transition of power that follows. The Republican Dream Team of 2016© plan lays the ground work for transforming the current ineffective federal government today - not a year from now.


    The book provides in-depth explorations of the current candidates’ campaign platforms, giving readers the opportunity to see their policies side by side and create an early Voting Guide. The assimilation of positions can help create a consensus platform for a united GOP to regain the White House and begin to enact vital reform in the federal government.”

    By the time I reached the age of “proper” female undergarments, women had abandoned the use of synched corsets. We were moving quickly from girdles to pantyhose and have thankfully arrived at bare legs. During the presidential election I blogged about preferring to be “shoeless” choosing liberty...

    February 16, 2017 In our household a debate is being held on the amount of time spent watching our federal government in action.  Unable to extract myself from the unfolding of the presidential election and inauguration, I told my husband, “This is my super bowl!”  My passion to follow the...

    Dear Captain-Elect, Congratulations on taking the time to surround yourself with the right crew to help you navigate as the leader of the free world.  I’m writing because I believe in the engine that makes this ship run – the constitution. (“I Agree with Robert Gates” 12/8/15).  If followed, I...
    I hear that those of my herd are stampeding to Hillary.  “Why?” I ask.  They answer, “Trump is a bombastic, misogynistic, insensitive brute that will only benefit the rich and annihilate the world by pressing THE button.” I remember viscerally the Cuban Missile Crisis – I was in the fifth grade...
    Society tells me I “should” like shoes because I am a woman. I choose to buy shoes with enough style to fit in and enough fit to get me through the day.  Those that know me best know that when given a choice I prefer to go barefoot. I prefer the freedom of bare feet to style or fit. With all of...
    FOX News commentators speak as if they have read our book, The Republican Dream Team of 2016 (www.republicandreamteamof2016). Hannity in an interview with Ted Cruz (before he dropped out of race): Hannity:  “I have a crazy idea and I’ve been talking about it on the radio the last two weeks . . ...

    Catherine McBreen and I have been lobbying for the audacious idea that the Republican candidates for president run as a team.  Can it be possible that our book The Republican Dream Team of 2016 was published only eight short weeks ago? What an amazing eight weeks in politics it has been. We...
