this book kept me listening but it seemed to use the kid gloves when it came to Obama. everybody in the book was deeply flawed except for him
Well written, researched, interesting supermarket tabloid. Not Beautiful People of 2008, just one beautiful person now President, Barack Obama. His story was the main feature. Unfortunately other mentioned also-ran had the sort of intellectual and emotional flaws that kept them from the front cover. This book should become a classic example of what can be done to keep the mystic alive past the honeymoon first year.
The mud held my interest.
The authors politics, however, are as ingratiating and fawning as can be expected from these beltway boys.
I had heard so much about this book and the behind the scenes stories of an amazing election but I could not finish due to the language. Lord help us if all the candidates that were running used such words. Shame on you.
