Summary
"Looks at the presidential nomination process--the ways in which it is broken and how it might be fixed. Addresses the selection process: the importance--and perceived unfairness--of the earliest primaries, media coverage and public endorsements, 'superdelegates.' Evaluates public perceptions of the current process as well as possible reforms"--Provided by publisher
