I'm With the Band

Three's A Crowd

In this 17-minute election special, Will Rabbe and Sarah Scully take you to the starting line of the general election as well as Hillary Clinton's final frontier.  With coverage from inside the campaigns from DC to LA and various stops in between, Will gets a run down of arguments for staying in the race from the Clinton campaign while Sarah hops on the McCain campaign to catch a glimpse of the candidate with President Bush.  Will and Sarah get a thorough analysis of the McCain Obama match-up from political thinkers as varied as Frank Luntz, Joe Trippi, Byron York, Howard Fineman, Mark McKinnon and more.

Anatomy of a Campaign Worker

Will and Sarah interview just a few of the hundred of thousands of people volunteering on the campaigns, sacrificing sleep and pay to knock-on-doors and wave signs. These impassioned volunteers explain what makes them tick and what they do on a daily basis.

Featuring Arun Chaudhary, Jessica Slider, Brad Bond, Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton

The Stump Speech

Will and Sarah dissect the carefully craft messages that candidates repeat dozens of times a day.  Reporters who listen to the repetition for a living, offer their own amusing takes on the topic, particularly Jennifer Senior of New York Magazine, who has McCain's stump speech down pat.  

Featuring Jennifer Senior, Roger Simon, Ken Walsh, Brooks Jackson, David Halperin, Mark Halperin, John McCain, Michael Dukakis, Bill Bradley, Barack Obama, Hillary Rodham Clinton
