WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:

One of the best books on the 2008 Presidential campaign has just been published.

Called The Battle for America 2008: The Story of an Extraordinary Election, the book is co-written by long time Washington political veterans Haynes Johnson and Dan Balz.

WMNF spoke with Balz last week, and asked him what happened to the campaign of GOP candidate Rudy Guiliani, who many analysts thought in late 2007 was best positioned to win the nomination. But Guilani's strategy of downplaying Iowa and New Hampshire to concentrate on Florida proved to be a faulty one.
