Double Down: Game Change 2012
In their runaway bestseller Game Change, Mark Halperin and John Heilemann captured the drama of Barack Obama’s improbable 2008 victory. With the same masterly reporting, unparalleled access, and narrative skill, Double Down picks up the story in the Oval Office, where the president is beset by crises— facing defiance from his political foes, disenchantment from the voters, disdain from the nation’s powerful money makers, and dysfunction within the West Wing.
As 2012 looms, leaders of the Republican Party, salivating over Obama’s political fragility, see a chance to wrest back control of the White House. So how did the Republicans screw it up? How did Obama survive the onslaught of super PACs and defy the predictions of a one-term presidency? Double Down follows the gaudy carnival of GOP contenders as Mitt Romney, the gaffe-prone multimillionaire from Massachusetts, scratched his way to the nomination.
