Synopsis

NBC News producer Alexandra Pelosi, assigned to cover George W. Bush's run for the Presidency in 2000, carried a small video camera with which she recorded events along the way. Bush is well aware of Pelosi's project, frequently mugging for the camera, sometimes turning it on her, teasing her about her relationship with another reporter. Despite early setbacks in New Hampshire and Michigan, Bush is able to overtake his chief rival, Senator John McCain (R, AZ), who eventually drops out of the race and throws his support to Bush. Pelosi also records the thoughts of several colleagues, including reporters from The Financial Times of London, Newsweek, and two journalists from The Houston Chronicle and The Dallas Morning News who have already covered Bush as governor of Texas. Pelosi occasionally talks about her own ambivalent attitude toward politics (her mother, Nancy Pelosi, is a Democratic congresswoman from California), the media circus that accompanies any campaign in the television era, and life as a single woman in her late twenties with no romantic prospects. ~ Tom Wiener, Rovi
