Commentator Patrick B. McGuigan compared Richard Engle’s “The Last American President” to the political novels of the great Allen Drury in a short review kicking off this week’s edition of Capitol Report, the CBS affiliate in Oklahoma City.

The CapitolBeatOK editor commended it to viewers, calling it a timely story in light of this year’s bipartisan presidential campaign turmoil. McGuigan said one of the novel’s strengths – perhaps surprising from an intense conservative battler like Engle – is that “there is more to life than politics,” McGuigan said.

In dialogue with News9 reporter Alex Cameron, McGuigan said a scholarly paper on Internet gaming, presented at the recent Sovereignty Symposium, lays out the legal basis for “a new era in Indian County.”

Wrapping up, McGuigan cheered opening of a new office, in Tulsa – a strong area of support for reform — by Oklahomans for Criminal Justice Reform, sponsors of two historic ballot initiatives on the November ballot.
