At the start of an epic 2012 election, the team trying to re-elect President Obama faced a mountain of challenges: a dismal economy, the faded hopes of the first campaign, and a struggle to raise enough cash to compete. No president had risen so fast, or fallen so far, in the modern era. To resell the president, they needed to redefine the world they were living in. But first, they needed to fight the enemy within: each other. In 2008 they found a way around their rivalries. Four years later, their hostilities threatened to undermine the re-election of a president at a time when most voters were deeply unhappy and ready for change. Come hear the behind-the-scenes story of the momentous 2012 Obama re-election campaign.
