When Binder showed them video of Obama, they were struck by his sincerity, his genuineness, his not-the-same-old-politician-ness.
It must be really swell to be a “journalist”; you can name your book after one of the year’s most tired catch phrases and be free from the hardship of having to identify the sources of your “facts. Game Change, by John Heilemann and Mark Halperin purports to present the parallel stories inside the campaigns during the 2008 election. The authors declined to share their sources for all of this detailed insider information.
Apparently, being a journalist also confers psychic powers—Heilemann and Halperin often were able to read minds:
“She [Hillary] was like Cassandra, convinced she could see the future, filled with angst that no one believed her.” (Pg. 231).
Leaving aside the thrust of the article--that this new book is just a puff piece written by a hack journalist, I'll just point out that this mystical ability to infer what a politician (or anyone else) is thinking is a spurious, vapid method of argument. But I've seen many sub-standard writers use it.
