Once again, Larry Sabato has raised the bar on political writing. In what is easily the best book about the 2000 presidential election, Sabato has put together a fair and analytical review of the campaign, with complete analysis from scholars, campaign advisers, and journalists. From Ron Klain and Jeremy Bash explaining the Gore recount effort to Timothy Burger describing his adventures in reporting the Bush DUI story, this book is dynamite in giving new anecdotes and tales from the closest election this century. It is definitely worth buying.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
