Race of a Lifetime: How Obama Won the White House
In 2008, the presidential election became blockbuster entertainment. Everyone was watching as the race for the White House unfolded like something from the realm of fiction.
The meteoric rise and historic triumph of Barack Obama. The shocking fall of the House of Clinton—and the improbable resurrection of Hillary as Obama's partner and America's face to the world. The mercurial performance of John McCain and the mesmerizing emergence of Sarah Palin. But despite the wall-to-wall media coverage of this spellbinding drama, remarkably little of the real story behind the headlines has yet been told.
Brimming with exclusive revelations, this compulsively readable book lays bare the characters of the candidates, warts and all, and charts the true path to the White House. It's a tour de force: the shocking, funny, and definitive account of the campaign of a lifetime.
Condition: Good. A book that has been read but is in good condition. The book cover has no visible wear. No highlighting of text, no writing in the margins, and no missing pages.
