Not sure whether this should go in CS or elsewhere, but since my comments are mostly on the production, I’m starting here.
I thought the documentary did a good job showing McCain and Obama as politicians, political figures, strategists, public servants. They didn’t spend much time on the policies and positions of the candidates. Instead, they explained how they got to where they are.
It was entertaining as well. Lots of photos and film that I’d never seen before, and the comments of the participants were on point.
I thought it was unbiased. Obama doesn’t come off as a cockeyed idealist and McCain isn’t portrayed as a cantankerous old coot. I’m reassured about Obama’s instincts, and I’m even a bit reassured about McCain. He’s not the devil.
Did you watch? What did you get from it?
