Patriots and the Prince

Recently I’ve been reading David Frum’s novel: Patriots. One message that comes through in the subtext is that the book is a job application for a moderate Republican presidential administration (Romney?). The book seems constantly to be saying “I know these people in the Conservative Movement. I understand them. I know how to work with them to accomplish your (and my) goals.”
I’m reminded that Machiavelli’s The Prince was written for similar reasons.
