Fascinating. Just finished watching this. Great cast! We really dodged a bullet in 2008.
Revelations From The Campaign January 10, 2010Authors of a new book, "Game Change," and John McCain's former top campaign strategist reveal behind-the-scenes issues from the GOP and Democratic camps during the campaign. Anderson Cooper reports
WOW!! JUST WOW!!!! very interesting!! I was not able to see the movie but I can only imagine the inside scoop! lol
"We really dodged a bullet in 2008."
Truer words were never spoken. Palin shouldn't be allowed to be anywhere near a ballot box, much less a political office. When you are the governor of a state, and try to run it from your hometown (Wasilla) rather than the actual state capital (Juneau) something is wrong. Oh, I forgot, in Wasilla, you are much closer to being able to see Russia, and gaining that invaluable foreign policy experience, than you would be from Juneau (BUT--hint--a person can't actually see Russia from either one--neither is in the Aleutians). And we can't forget about the American Independence Party experience (advocating Alaska seceding from America). And not realizing Africa is a continent, not a country. But she fits the current GOP mold--dumbed down electorate, dumb politician.
Republican strategist and senior adviser to the McCain-Palin 2008 campaign Nicolle Wallace, played by Sarah Paulson in the HBO film, says that the film 'Game Change' is an accurate portrayal of Sarah Palin during the campaign.
McCain's adviser Nicolle Wallace said that she did not vote for McCain/Palin.

Some suprises, mostly though it cements what I already believed.
The biggest surprise: McCain's running mate was chosen through a Google / YouTube search. YIKES!
I hope that the 2012 GOP nominee (still sure it will be Romney) learns from this. I'm a bit frightened that history might repeat itself - not necessarily Palin but a similar situation because Romney is seen as too moderate. There may be another Hail Mary Pass VP nominee.
