In his new book, Whistlestop: My Favorite Stories From Presidential Campaign History, John Dickerson tells the tales behind the most memorable moments in American presidential elections.
The Face the Nation moderator and Slate columnist presents stories from Whistlestop and his own time on the campaign trail. Presidential campaigns are a contest to lead the most powerful country on Earth. The stakes are high. The characters are striving and full of ego. The battle of ideas has a clear end, with winners and losers, and along the way there are sharp turning points—primaries, debates, conventions, and scandals—that squeeze candidates into emergency action, frantic grasping, and heroic gambles. Only John Dickerson can bring the stories to life in such a human way and properly place our current political moment in the context of history.
Join us and see John Dickerson tell the political stories that mean the most to him.
