Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime by John Heilemann“It’s one of the best books on politics of any kind I’ve read. For entertainment value, I put it up there with Catch 22.” —The Financial Times
“It transports you to a parallel universe in which everything in the National Enquirer is true….More interesting is what we learn about the candidates themselves: their frailties, egos and almost super-human stamina.” —The Financial Times
“I can’t put down this book!” —Stephen Colbert

Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime
In July Harry Reid, the Senate majority leader, abruptly summoned Barack Obama , then a freshman senator, for a meeting. Not at all, Obama replied. It was a telling moment. Heilemann, a columnist for New York magazine, and Halperin, the senior political analyst for Time, have conducted hundreds of interviews to provide the inside story of the campaign, longer on vignettes and backstage gossip than on analysis. Each successive election cycle seems to have increased the stakes, and it has been going on a long time. She complained about the scruffy hotels and resisted calling local politicos, even hanging up on one who said that she was wavering between Clinton and another candidate. There were other difficulties, too.
