Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime

Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime - 'John Heilemann',  'Mark Halperin' A fascinating, heavily detailed narrative of the nearly singular, certainly historic 2008 presidential campaign, "Game Change" views its cast with an omnipresent eye and strongly critical gaze. Detailing Obama's unprecedented self-confidence, Clinton's poorly matched handlers, Edwards's half-ignorant, half-willful self-destruction, and the assembly of McCain's ideologically bipolar ticket, "Game Change" is completely riveting, end to end. Despite its audience knowing how the election cycle will play out, the book provides a page turner, detailing the best and worst of the personalities dominating the election. A well researched account of a fascinating, one-in-a-lifetime election year, whose repercussions are still unfolding.
