A Worthwhile Timesuck

I followed to this through several links in several blogs. I'm not normally one to follow the news, it's generally a timesuck for me. I focus on human interest and don't absorb just what I need to. Hours later, I'm still chasing stories.

Here is a great timesuck. It's the Newsweek behind-the-scenes accounts of the Presidential Election of 2008. I'm trying to stretch this out, but Chapter 1 ate up a couple of hours this morning as I pondered what was being written about Clinton and Obama.

I guess one could read the highlights. I did, across several blogs. But it's not the same. The full chapters give you insight into how the campaigns were run and Obama's hesitancy about being a candidate for President.

Consider yourself warned...
