You might want to specify that they are all American politicians but nice work regardless.
Comment below threshold:

Or not, since American is assumed. Since we're on an American site and we're all Americans except you and four other people. Also, a few of these were probably not written by the politicians, but one that is especially offensive (because he's praised for it, I think he won one of the big awards for it) is JFK's book. Ted Sorensen wrote that book. I've always had no respect for Kennedy because he just sat there and took the praise for writing something he didn't write, he accepted the awards and accolades. A man who'll do that will do anything.

The world is a big place, PWT3 and it's sad you aren't capable of appreciating that, what with your small mind and all.

I'm so happy someone made a quiz like this. And I love that it was verified. I made a similar quiz a few weeks back of different books written by Presidents. http://www.sporcle.com/games/cass24/books_by_us_presidents I wonder how you would do on mine. Nonetheless, awesome quiz! Nice work!

Should be only one 'l' in 'Colin.' Also, I am sorry to say that my Sporclitis continues to be a bother--I missed Carter and got Lodge.

The books written by or for politicians are oft soon forgot. Who knows the names of books written in the name of an earlier generation of presidential candidates: at least one by RFK (To Seek A Newer World), Eugene McCarthy, Nelson Rockefeller and George McGovern.
And there are more lasting books such as
Conscience of a Conservative
by Barry Goldwater (ghosted by L. Brent Bozell, Sr.), which really ought to be here, as should at least one by Woodrow Wilson (e.g.
and Wm F. Buckley, Jr. (I'm not a conservative). Wendell Willkie's
(1943) is also historically significant.
But these are quibbles. This is a good quiz.

Where's Going Rogue?

I should correct myself: William F. Buckley, Jr, was never a seriously-contemplated presidential candidate (his brother James the Senator was more of the politician in his generation of the Buckleys). When asked what his first act as mayor of New York would be if elected (as the Conservative Party's candidate against the Republican-Liberal John V. Lindsay) in 1965, WFB replied "Demand a recount!"
