Author of Self Published Book Proposes Guiding Principles for President-Elect Obama

Xlibris book author recommends guidelines for Obama administration based on analysis of past US presidents’ policies.

Philadelphia, PA, November 11, 2008 --( Guiding principles for the Obama administration are proposed by book author Edward C. Mendler in Policies for a President: a Manifesto for 2008 and Beyond, published by Xlibris.

Originally intended for the US presidential candidates, Mendler’s message goes beyond 2008 as the title of the self-published book declares. It serves as an advice for the new President-elect Barack Obama to be watchful of past presidents’ mistakes.

Mendler presents an account of policies carried out by different US presidents and provides a thorough review and analysis of the government policies of the Bush administration. Lapses of the Bush policies are emphasized specifically the involvement of military power and the belief that military action is an appropriate and effective response to terrorism.

The self-published release also underlines what the American people must seriously consider in government policies. The author wrote, "Take careful account of the policies and the goals that you really want the President to pursue. What is your vision for America, for yourself, your children and grandchildren? What policies of a President will lead us in that direction? How can they be implemented? And what policies and actions of Presidents in the past have carried us forward in the right direction, and what policies and actions have gone astray and set us back?”

Mendler studied political science in Princeton University and graduated magna cum laude. He obtained his law degree in Harvard Law School and practiced his profession as a lawyer in Boston for fifty years. He is primarily working on pro bono.

Policies for a President, A Manifesto for 2008 and Beyond is available at Xlibris, a book publishing company and one of the pioneers of the print-on demand industry.
