"This shit would be really interesting if we weren't in the middle of it."-Barack Obama, September 2008 In 2008, the presidential election became blockbuster entertainment. Everyone was watching as the race for the White House unfolded like something from the realm of fiction. The meteoric rise and historic triumph of Barack Obama. The shocking fall of the House of Clinton-and the improbable resurrection of Hillary as Obama's partner and America's face to the world. The mercurial performance of John McCain and the mesmerizing emergence of Sarah Palin. Based on hundreds of interviews with the people who lived the story, Game Change is a reportorial tour de force that reads like a fast-paced novel. Character driven and dialogue rich, replete with extravagantly detailed scenes, this is the occasionally shocking, often hilarious, ultimately definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime.

This is an excellent review of the nomination race as well as the actual 2008 US Presidential Election. Based on extensive interviews with people who were involved in Republican, Democratic campaigns, the authors look at why the US ended up with McCain and Obama facing off against each other in the final rundown, and what pushed Obama over the top. Many of the candidates and their families come out looking not so good. This is especially true of the Edwards family. Elizabeth comes off looking like a manipulative, conniving Lady Macbeth who has stage managed her pretty boy husband's career.

Still, this work is engrossing, full of insider details about how a campaign is run and funded. Worthwhile for even the most casual political junkie.
