My goal: to run for president in this, the momentous year of 2012! (The details of my return and campaign have been recounted in the book Taft 2012. Or so I am told. I have yet to find the spare time to read it, although I must admit it is quite a handsome volume.) It is my honor and duty to be so considered for a second term, even though my status as an outlying independent candidate has relegated me to the depressing backwater of the mass media.
Tattered Cover is a Denver institution as well as being one of the finest booksellers in America, and it was an honor to be their guest. The crowd was amazing--must have been at least a hundred people there, and not even all of them were my family!--and despite my nervousness I was somehow able to keep people from fleeing.
But in all seriousness, I couldn't have imagined a better book launch. Thanks to everyone who came!
