A depressing confirmation of everything those of us who don't object to the description "unelected" have suspected all along: George W. Bush is an incurious, uncharismatic, overgrown frat boy with a mean streak a mile wide.
All in all, an interesting look at the life of the campaign-trail press, especially ones that don't really care for the candidate they're forced to follow.
A chronicle not only of one man's quest to be president, but of how that man single-handedly turned a plane full of hard-bitten, cynical journalists into what was essentially, by campaign's end, an extended publicity department.
