See How They Run
See How They Run: Electing the President in an Age of Mediaocracy was discussed by the author, Paul Taylor. As a political correspondent for the Washington Post, Mr. Taylor covered the 1988 presidential election from start to finish. The book includes profiles of the major party campaigns and candidates, and commentary on why the major players (the candidates, press and public) bring out the worst in each other. He described political campaigns as being “long, nasty, and even trivial.” However, the American political process is not without hope. He concludes his book with possible “fixes” and even suggests that the state of world politics or the economy may be such that change will be sparked on its own. close
