One Last Bit of Election Stuff

I’m fascinated by behind-the-scenes information about political campaigns, which is part of what made The War Room so interesting to me. Now Newsweek is starting to release information from their Special Elections Project. “How He Did It, 2008” is an “inside, behind-the-scenes account of the presidential election produced by a special team of reporters working for more than a year on an embargoed basis and detached from the weekly magazine and Newsweek.com.” There’s tidbits on how the candidates reacted to debates (they unsettled both McCain and Obama), and the boundaries McCain set for personal attacks (“no Jeremiah Wright; no attacking Michelle Obama; no attacking Obama for not serving in the military”).

UPDATE: Here’s part one of “How He Did It”.
