Al Leiter, Jon Bon Jovi and More

With the names of celebrities like Al Leiter and Jon Bon Jovi being tossed around as potential political candidates in New Jersey, it’s a good time to take a look at how celebrities fare in politics. Authors Darrell West and John Orman address the subject in thir book Celebrity Politics. There’s an excerpt online at http://www.waukesha.uwc.edu/eng/gahrenho/lec100west.htm. In it, they discuss why celebrities run for office, what affects their prospects, and how they perform in office.
