Turning Point, an action-packed love story, takes us through the political looking-glass of America in the decade following the 2000 election -- providing an alternative scenario of progressive leadership in the face of daunting challenges to national security, counter-terrorism, economic policy, and environmental protection. Much of the story is told by Captain John "Rawhide" Cunningham, a decorated Air Force pilot turned Secret Service agent and military advisor to the president. The captain, who gets his thrills flying an F-16 at Mach 2, falls in love with the president's daughter, Karen Farnesworth. But there's one problem. She's a liberal, environmental studies graduate student at Georgetown and he's the grandson of a conservative swing-vote Supreme Court Justice. Can Captain Cunningham and Karen overcome the ideological chasm that divides Americans in the 21st century to find happiness? Cunningham's hair-raising encounter with an Iraqi surface-to-air missile and a helicopter tour near the Arctic Circle will keep readers glued to their seats, even if his passengers wish they were. The new president, too, is in for the ride of his life - with enemies ranging from conservative media to corrupt state officials, and from terrorist groups to Wall Street financiers. Enter Andy Jackson, an eloquent African-American voting rights lawyer who unearths a plot to steal the 2004 presidential election in Ohio. But can Andy save the popular Democratic president? And if not, where will a conservative Republican president take the country? Turning Point finally provides an entertaining and compelling answer to the decade-old question: How would the world be different today if the Supreme Court had allowed the votes in Florida to be counted, and a Democrat had been elected president? And what lessons can America learn in this new decade from the turmoil of the last?
