The most prominent American political consultant, Dick Morris has become well known for his probing, insightful, hard-hitting and clear commentary on the FoxNews channel. With his wife, Eileen McGann, Dick has written fourteen books, including ten New York Times best-sellers. Their almost daily columns circulate by email to 500,000 people and hundreds of thousands more read them on dickmorris.com, their famous web site. He now produces a daily video on his site, seen by over 140,000 separate people each week with a history lesson every Saturday.
Domestically, Morris has handled the winning campaigns of more than thirty Senators and Governors. Internationally, he has piloted the successful campaigns of the president or prime minister of Mexico, Colombia, Argentina, Uruguay, Kenya, Spain, Hungary, Poland, Taiwan, and Japan.
Morris first came to national attention when he provided the strategy that engineered Bill Clinton’s stunning comeback re-election victory in 1996, rescuing his presidency after he had lost control of Congress in 1994. Called “the most influential private citizen in America” by Time Magazine, Morris steered Clinton back toward the center and was a key player in the Clinton Administration initiatives that balanced the budget, cut taxes, and reformed welfare.
The Morris-Clinton relationship began in 1977 when he handled Bill’s first campaign for governor. After Clinton was elected, he fired Morris and lost his bid for re-election in 1980. After bringing Morris back, Clinton asked him to guide his successful re-election campaigns in 1984, 1986, and 1990.
Morris’ and McGann’s latest book is Revolt! – How to Defeat Obama and Repeal His Socialist Agenda – A Patriot’s Guide.
He and his wife, Eileen have also just published a children’s book entitled Dubs Goes to Washington and Discovers the Greatness of America, starring the Morris’ golden retriever, Dubs.
Their more serious books have been prescient. In Outrage, they predicted the collapse of Fannie Mae. In Fleeced, they foresaw the stock market crash of 2008. In Catastrophe, they warned that Obama’s stimulus package would not work. In 2010: Take Back America, they predicted a 60-80 seat gain in the House.
Their other best sellers include: Off With Their Heads about the war on terror and Rewriting History and Because He Could, biographies of Hillary and Bill Clinton.
Morris’ first best seller was Behind the Oval Office – his memoir about the Clinton years. His other books are: Power Plays, Vote.com, The New Prince, and Bum Rap on American Cities.
He and Eileen have been married for 34 years and live in Florida.
