[on the phone before Election Day]
I got up this morning, as I was driving to work, I started to cry. I couldn't keep it - I just can't, I can't cope right now... Right... Man, I'm scared. Because we're all gonna have to jump off a bridge. Because, you know, 'cause of the last two days... Because of the last two days... Yeah. It'll just be - it's kind a mass thing, we can all just drink some Kool-Aid.

Everything has been told here, very pointedly, about James Carville and George Stephanopoulos, the dream team - along with Paul Begala - which helped Clinton to win against the odds.
I just rewatched the DVD after years and what really caught me this time was how awkward and downright embarrassing George H. W. Bush came across. Desperate to conceal his "patrecian" upbringing his juvenile verbal nasties were a hoot. In later years Junior was much more believable as a foulmouthed punk.
Which pretty much sums up the ill advised campaign of Senior. Whipping H. W. into a fake frenzy and then present Mary Matalin as a voice of reason was a fatal choice against the Dem's candidate playing the emphatic considerate charm card accompanied by the fiery spinning of Carville and the quiet ruthlessness of boyish Stephanopoulos.
And no, the filmmakers weren't biased in terms of Senior. The infamous "Govenor Taxes and the Ozone man/Halloween" weren't shown. As weren't lots of other gaffes.
So as much as showing a winning campaign the 15 % of the Bush failing campaign on show are just as revealing.
