Game Change is a searing, behind-the-scenes look at John McCain's 2008 presidential campaign, from the decision to select Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as McCain's running mate to the ticket's ultimate defeat in the general election just sixty days later. Told primarily through the eyes of senior McCain strategist Steve Schmidt, who originally championed Palin and later came to regret the choice.

“John McCain: “Who is the real Barack Obama?”
Republican Supporter: “A terrorist!”
Steve Schmidt [talking about McCain]: “I’m amazed that someone who has been in politics this long takes all the petty stuff so personally.”
Rick Davis: “And that’s why they are who they are. (That’s) Reagan, Bush, Clinton—all they want is to be loved. The ones that don’t pathologically need to be loved, they don’t get the nomination. They don’t get to be president. If you’d understood that fact you might have been able to better handle our Alaskan moose hunter. God, it was a tough campaign.”
Steve: “It wasn’t a campaign, it was a bad reality show.”
Rick: “She didn’t cost us the election. That was Bush. That was the economy. That was just the cold hand of fate. We didn’t have a chance.”
Nicolle Wallace: “Do you think the Fed did the right thing in their dealing with the Bear Stearns collapse?”
Sarah Palin: “Our economy is hurting… and the federal government has not provided the sound oversight that we need and that we deserve. I think we need a little bit of reality from Wasilla Main Street there brought to Wasington, DC…so that the people there can understand how the average working-class family is viewing bureaucracy in the federal government.”
Nicolle: “On any Fed or Bear Stearns question just say the Fed took the appropriate action that was needed at the time. Okay?”
Steve Schmidt: “Governor, do you know why we’re in Iraq?”
Palin: “Because Saddam Hussein attacked us on 9/11.”
Steve: “No. No. Al-Qaeda attacked us on 9/11.”
Palin: “Not Saddam Hussein?”
Steve: “No, it was Al-Qaeda. And that’s why we’re in Afghanistan.”
Nicolle: “Do you know the differences between the war in Afghanistan and the war in Iraq?”
Extensive quotes from IMBd web site such as : Rick Davis: Listen, I too wish that the American people would choose the future Abraham Lincoln or Thomas Jefferson, but unfortunately, that's not the way it works anymore. Now it takes movie-star charisma to get elected President, and Obama and Palin, that's what they are - they're stars. ---- John McCain: You're one of the leaders of the party now Sarah. Don't get co-opted by Limbaugh and the other extremists. They'll destroy the party if you let them.
