After the promisingly nasty beginning, the filmmakers settle into a sort of campaign mode, lulling and flattering the audience with a fairy-tale vision of the common man's victory over the Washington establishment.

Arrant nonsense mixed with goo.

Reitman keeps coming up with bouncy new directions to take the somewhat predictable material, greatly helped by Kline's bounce.

An overall mood of sweetness may help one to forgive the archaic and childish aspects of the would-be analysis, which splits everyone between angels and devils.
