It was 1am in the morning and I had just learned of Netflix's unlimited online downloads, so I checked this film out about Ollie North's unsuccessful Senate bid in 1994. It was a fascinating film for us political junkies. What was eerie though was that I feel like North was the Republican parties first attempt at a Bush-type candidate to win over evangelicals - the folksy, simple, born-again, patriotic, freedom-loving, compassionate, white guy who can seduce potential voters with a wink of an eye. Too bad he is the exact opposite of that - most notably a main criminal participant of the Iran-Contra scandal...oops. North's campaign manager in the film did make a good point though, that elections are all about dividing people while securing your base of voters, while governing is about uniting people and that disconnect makes for some sleezy, negative campaigns and some ineffective politicians. Anyone who likes politics and campaigns should watch this film.
