Game Change

Such an unbelievable read. It's an excerpt from Game Change, a new book about the campaigns of 2008. This particular excerpt deals with John and Elizabeth Edwards--and of course Rielle Hunter. Wow. It's almost surreal to read, tracing the way John Edwards apparently morphed from a decent guy into an egotist, and the people he pulled down with him. From a political perspective, you can absolutely and authentically feel the desperation of his staff and inner circle trying to save him from himself--and trying to save the party and the election from his behavior. What a scene. And what a total prick.
