Well done historical and political series that's well done with research, facts, and interviews combined with footage!
22 March 2016 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

Been watching the new CNN series "The Race for the White House" which is a showcase that puts a spotlight on the most dirty and close and cruel presidential races in U.S. election history! It's a real joy to watch as the clips and footage with news clips for each contests takes you back to that present time. And it's nice to see the interviews from political insiders, history teachers, and those that were involved in that very race. It shows how dirty politics is with back room deals and attack ads that can make or break an election. And it shows how the media and culture can impact a presidential race. Overall great series that should return for many seasons and feature every presidential race in U.S. history because it would educate everyone and this show is a must for any political and history buff.
