The battle for America, 2008 : the story of an extraordinary election by Daniel J Balz( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 1,520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The election of 2008 shattered political barriers, illuminated undercurrents of race, gender, and class, and ignited an extraordinary battle among some of the most formidable political rivals ever to seek the presidency in Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and John McCain. The election played out against a backdrop of wars, a shattered economy and deep pessimism about the future. Journalists Dan Balz and Haynes Johnson follow this campaign from the candidates' first forays to Obama's victory celebration. They reveal the strategic mistakes of the Clinton campaign and the story behind Obama's breakthrough organization. They cover McCain's struggle for survival in the Republican primaries, Sarah Palin, and the economic meltdown. Exclusive interviews with the candidates and their top strategists produce intimate portraits of Obama, Clinton, and McCain under stress; they also move far off the campaign trail to listen to voters express their anxieties about the darkening economic climate and the challenges facing the U.S.--From publisher description

Four years ago, a bright young presidential candidate named Barack Obama campaigned on a theme of hope and change and made history.

Storming the gates : protest politics and the Republican revival by Daniel J Balz( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 692 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Two years after voters drove George Bush from the White House, the Republican party rode a wave of antigovernment sentiment and disappointment with President Clinton to capture Congress for the first time in forty years. In Storming the Gates, seasoned political reporter Dan Balz and Ronald Brownstein take us inside this climactic GOP victory and reveal with fresh insights how the assault on sixty years of Democratic governance and domestic programs turned out and its impact on the struggle for power in the 1996 elections. Who are these new Republicans, and how did they revive themselves so quickly after Bush's defeat? What are their prospects for consolidating their electoral success of 1994 into a lasting victory that could permanently realign politics into the next century?
