Election 2004: How Bush Won and What You Can Expect in the Future

Overview

A full year before the presidential election, four Newsweek reporters are detached from the magazine to work fulltime on getting inside the campaigns of the Republican and Democratic candidates. Because Newsweek promises not to reveal any information until after the votes are cast, the reporters receive highly unusual access. They travel with the candidates, live at their headquarters, befriend their staffs. They blend into the background, where they watch and listen.

Overview

A full year before the presidential election, four Newsweek reporters are detached from the magazine to work fulltime on getting inside the campaigns of the Republican and Democratic candidates. Because Newsweek promises not to reveal any information until after the votes are cast, the reporters receive highly unusual access. They travel with the candidates, live at their headquarters, befriend their staffs. They blend into the background, where they watch and listen.

Evan Thomas has been the writer for this project for the last three elections, and each time, he has brilliantly woven together an award-winning narrative of the campaign,based on the reporting of the Newsweek team. The goal is a rich narrative, a telling, human, and personal story of the extraordinary ordeal of running for the presidency. The characters are the candidates, their families, and their top advisers. They battle uncertainty, exhaustion, a hostile media, and each other in a high-stakes contest that can produce only one winner. The 2004 election promised to be drama of a high order, a close, tense, bitter struggle in a deeply divided country caught in a strange and hard war. Newsweek's reporters were there at the critical moments, recording the scenes that decided the outcome.

Post election, the Newsweek team will now produce an expanded version of the stories that appeared in the magazine and Thomas will write an essay on the new administration, its key players and its prospects, the tone and direction it is expected to set. The book that emerges will be a first draft of history—not rough—but knowing and deeply reported.

    Politics 101

    I was going to give this book 3 stars, until I noticed that it took 4 to level a recommendation. With that said... One of the reasons I choose to read this book was to see how Michael Moore's film affected the internal workings of both campaigns. To my surprise, the authors of this book dedicated probably less than 100 words on the subject. It's hard to believe that a film that galvanized virtually an entire country seemed to completely elude our country's political system. What I have taken away from this book is the knowledge that how constituents feel, what they think, and what they want or need has little to do with how either party runs a campaign. Until voters overcome their apathy, educate themselves on the issues important to them, and literally force campaigns to take stands on issues...our future presidents, senators, legislators, mayors and council persons will be nothing more than the survivors of very expensive cat fights. Politics isn't eroding this country's values, our own apathy is.
