Mitch McConnell likes to say that 'Being Senate Majority Leader is like being the groundskeeper at a cemetery - everybody is under you, but nobody's listening.' It's a job that rewards his own blend of character traits, which include humility, tenacity, patience, and a focus on long-term results over short-term headlines. Senator McConnell is in the news virtually every day, but he says almost nothing to the press and has, in his words, 'an almost athletic determination to keep my own mouth shut.' His carefully cultivated silence has increased his political power tremendously since he arrived in the Senate in 1985. Now Senator McConnell finally opens up about his life and career, giving readers an intimate look at his personal motivations and political ambitions, as well as offering a peek behind the curtain of how the Washington political machine really operates at the highest levels.
