really liked it

With the 2012 race almost upon us, I thought it would be fun to revisit '08.

Fun indeed.

Certainly has the same flaws that most documentaries do - the writers have an agenda, and ignore parts of the narrative that don't support it. The most blaring example: Hilary's campaign was a total mess. However, when she started beating Obama in later primaries, the focus shifts away from her (presumably less messy?) campaign and towards Obama (who, in this narrative, is the steely hero).

Still, wildly entertaining for political junkies.

John Yeah, I really came away from this book grateful that John Edwards didn't do better, and, unimpressed with Hilary's ability to lead *her own hand-chosen team*.
