I really disagree with you about "Politician". It's not that I think its a great book so much as I think its a tremendous morality tale and a glimpse into the heart of a man who would do absolutely anything (and I do mean anything!) to be close to power.
I think its a more important book than "Game Change" which is an insider look that you can get in a dozen books after last election.
Here is a man who from the beginning was willing to demean himself in any way, risk his wife's respect, anything, to stay close to John Edwards. In the end, he was willing to be portrayed as an adulterer and a cad in one last effort to win power and favor. That's a theme straight out of Shakespeare or Arthur Miller. Only in real life.
