Valuable document of the election but not much substance
12 August 2004 | by (San Francisco, CA) – See all my reviews

I watched the whole thing hoping that some bright pinnacle or dark depth might be reached. It was not.

I suppose there's some inherent value to seeing and being around this group and getting a feel for the process but the 60's documentary "Primary" of Robert Drew's seems to do a better job of displaying the campaign process, even though its a much older film. The one item I felt this video did impart was that the press is just following their 'target' around and trying not to be noticed and living in fear that they might p*** off the person their supposed to be covering and there by loose precious access.

The candidate & crew seem to hold most of the cards and will on occasion dole out some 'face time' - especially when they're down in the polls.
