The Choice 2008

Tue October 14, 2008

The Center for Politics and Governance, in conjunction with the Future Forum, presented The Choice 2008, co-produced and co-written by CPG Director of Research Studies, Dr. Paul Stekler.  The Choice 2008 on PBS’s award winning Frontline series documents the political "life story" of John McCain and Barack Obama. More about “The Choice 2008”

It has been called one of the most historic presidential elections in our nation’s history--Barack Obama versus John McCain. It is a race that pits the iconoclast against the newcomer, the heroic prisoner of war against the first African American nominated by a major party. FRONTLINE's critically acclaimed series The Choice returns this election season to examine the rich personal and political biographies of these two men in The Choice 2008.

The Choice 2008, part of "PBS Vote 2008" election coverage, draws on in-depth interviews with the advisers, family and friends closest to these unlikely candidates, as well as with seasoned observers of American politics, who together tell the definitive story of these men and their ascent to their party's nominations.
