It's interesting that HBO focused solely on the John McCain/Sarah Palin aspect of the book Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime. Some of the juiciest bits were about Hillary vs Obama and Elizabeth Edwards' machinations and foul temper.

Since the McCain campaign lost, Clinton is Secretary of State, and Obama is President, I'm guessing the filmmakers decided not to piss off the powers that be by including the whole panoramic view of the 2008 race. Plus, the whole sordid story about Sarah Palin's meltdown was probably too much to resist.

How many of you will watch it? I know it'll hit the top of the Netflix queue, but I'm doubtful I'd go see it in the theater.
