Saturday Word Play- Political Memoirs Thesaurusized



With Obama's recent win (in case you haven't heard about it), I'm guessing his already popular books The Audacity of Hope and Dreams From My Father will be under a lot of Christmas trees this year. But, while he might be the first African-American president, he's certainly not the first political figure to put pen to paper. Below is a list of some other well-known political memoirs. However, I've tweaked them slightly with the help of Thesaurus.com. For instance, Obama's new titles could be The Boldness of Optimism and Fancies From My Daddy. Can you tell me the original titles for the following?

As always, feel free to do them all at home, but only answer one in the comment section, that way 10 people will have a chance to play

1. Hades or Elevated H2O- Paul Martin
2. The Route To Influence- Margaret Thatcher
3. My Entity- Bill Clinton
4. Authority- Rudolph W. Giuliani
5. No Grips Dammed- John Crosbie
6. Female Offspring of Fate- Benazir Bhutto
7. Instance and Fluke- Kim Campbell
8. Direct From The Soul- Jean Chretien
9. The Lengthy Hike To Liberty- Nelson Mandela
10. The Transformation of Aspiration- Vincente Fox

I can't believe I'm the first to comment.
#8 is Straight from the Heart by Jean Chretien.

After 20 minutes, I "think" I've worked out half of these but because the "Thesaurusized" version made me laugh, I'll go with #1: Paul Martin's Hell or High Water.
