Whose Broad Stripes and Bright Stars In their book, Whose Broad Stripes and Bright Stars: The Trivial Pursuit of the Presidency 1988, Jack Germond and Jules Witcover gave a retrospective analysis of the 1988 presidential election. Calling the campaign a “tug-of-war over the flag,” they discussed the patriotic issues that arose and are critical of the manner in which the press handled such matters. They specifically focused on the role of the campaign managers and point out the “defining events” leading up to the election. They share particularly interesting stories of the actual interviews that they conducted with candidates and managers. close
