Presidential secrets hidden in a long-forgotten room dubbed "J Street" come to light after Phil Greene, an Independent, takes office in January, 2009. Upon discovering a plan written by Lincoln that would help restore the founding father's ideal of the citizen politician, Greene implements it and changes the lives of the average Americans randomly selected to serve as part of this special Delegation. Forced into politics for the first time in their lives, they are given a crash course in media relations and how things really work in Washington. The public is willing to give the Delegation a chance, but some members of Congress cannot cope with what is now expected of them. Clandestine meetings are held and a plot to overthrow Greene and the Delegation is formed. Enlisting the aid of several Supreme Court justices, the conspirators implement their plans in an overwhelming attack on Greene.
