Campbell rode an initial wave of popularity in her first few months as prime minister, but her party's standing began to fall almost as soon as the 1993 campaign began. The Mulroney coalition of Western and Québec Conservatives disintegrated under the advance of the Reform Party in the West and of the Bloc Québécois in Québec. Campbell's problematic performance in the campaign, her focus on the debt rather than jobs, her verbal stumbling, her refusal to discuss social programs and her inability to distance herself from the extremely unpopular Brian Mulroney, whose government had failed in its promises to increase jobs, renew federalism and lower the public debt, propelled the party from defeat to disaster. The Conservative Party suffered the greatest defeat in Canadian political history. It was wiped out completely, even in its traditional stronghold of Alberta. Only two Conservatives were elected in all Canada, one of whom was her leadership rival Jean Charest. Campbell herself lost her own seat of Vancouver Centre to the Liberal candidate. She left office after the third-shortest term as prime minister, after Sir Charles Tupper and John Turner.

Cameron was also sure to mention the generous consulting feels and directorship payments he earned after leaving his post from the boards on which he sat: Horsham Corporation, American Barrick Resources Corporation, and the food-processing giant Archer-Daniels-Midland Company, in addition to his hefty salary from his job as a partner with the Ogilvy Renault law firm.A second book that poked at Mulroney was Marci McDonald's released in 1995.
