The Battle for the White House: and the Soul of America by Carole Coleman

The 2008 US presidential campaign was one of the most hard-fought, expensive, fascinating, and dramatic in living memory. Barack Obama's spectacular upset of heavily favored Hillary Clinton in the Democratic primaries riveted the world, and the battle with the Republican nominee John McCain was even more enthralling. Through interviews with party insiders, campaigners, political experts and hundreds of ordinary voters, Carole Coleman tells the remarkable story of one of the most engaging and critical US presidential elections ever fought. Carole Coleman is a US-based journalist. When she was Washington correspondent for Irish television her interview with Bush prompted the U.S. government to issue a diplomatic complaint to the Irish government. She is the author of Alleluia America: An Irish Journalist in Bush Country.
