Hello All.

Not training at the moment because of work, btut still reading. Just finished:

Race of a Lifetime by Halperin and Heineman:

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Race-Lifetime-Obama-White-House/dp/014104067X http://www.amazon.co.uk/Race-Lifetime-Obama-White-House/dp/014104067X

It covers the run-up to the 2008 election, focusing on Hillary Clinton, Obama, and John McCain. It's a fast-paced, funny and fascinating glimpse inside the campaigns. The principals emerge as complex blends of idealism and cynicism. They're all wedded to the notion of public service and yet blisteringly ambitious. The bit where the aides are trying to get Sarah Palin up to speed with, er, everything, is hilarious and sad in equal measure.

Well worth a look for anyone with an interest in US politics.
