Dowd, a strategist for President Bush's two campaigns who has recently broken publicly with the president over the direction of the administration; and award-winning political journalist Ron Fournier -- took their exclusive insiders' knowledge far outside Washington's Beltway in search of keys to winning leadership.
Matthew J. Dowd is founding partner of Vianovo, a corporate brand and positioning firm. He advises California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger and Michigan gubernatorial candidate Dick DeVos.
