New York Times best-selling author Roger Simon gives the inside story of the re-election of President Barack Obama in Reckoning: Campaign 2012 and the Fight for the Soul of America. As chief political columnist for Politico and a syndicated writer for Creators, Simon had a front-row seat for the race, from the early days of fundraising and exploratory committees, through the Republican primary circus, and into the general campaign and the election's frenetic finish. In this collection of columns, Simon gives a vivid roadmap of the election that was, with all its twists and turns, gaffes and gambles. Read about how Obama laid the groundwork for his tech-saavy campaign years in advance and the strategic blunders that contributed to Romney's eventual defeat. "Presidential elections are reckonings of history," Simon writes. In Reckoning, the veteran campaign reporter explains what the 2012 campaign reveals about America — what it means for our future.
