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 by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin

E 906 .H45 2010

“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.  But despite the wall-to-wall media coverage of this spellbinding drama, remarkably little of the real story behind the headlines had been told – until now.

In Game Change, John Heilemann and Mark Halperin pull back the curtain on the Obama, Clinton, McCain, and Palin campaigns.  Based on hundreds of interviews with the people who lived the story, Game Change is a repertorial tour de force that reads like a fast-paced novel.” – publisher description
