A little girl from America's Heartland is commanded by God to rule the world.
Well, not God exactly, an angel. Well, maybe not an angel, more of a ghost.
But a famous ghost! Struggling to fulfill her destiny she goes to a radical college,
has a career, a husband and a baby, toys with a wide variety of hairstyles (and headbands!),
becomes a Democrat, a First Lady and a Senator. She's going to be leader of the world –-
free or otherwise.
Because it's what God wants.
