Go behind the scenes of the historic 2008 election and learn more about the riveting book that even Stephen Colbert just can’t put down. Political journalists Halperin and Heilemann, discuss in extensive detail the momentous rise of Barack Obama, shocking fall of Hillary Clinton’s bid for the White House, and the national phenomenon around John McCain choosing Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. From hundreds of interviews with people working inside the '08 campaigns, learn more about the Obama campaign machine, how McCain staffers truly felt about Sarah Palin, and how Hillary Clinton was wooed as secretary of state.
