I have been looking for a copy of this documentary for at least two years and finally found it! This is everything a documentary should be. Not only does it cover the essence of what it was like to travel with a presidential campaign, but it also documents the personalities, the nuances, and the the scenes behind the scenes. I was completely mesmerized from beginning to end. It is a chronicle that "moves." As a Bush fan, I had braced myslef for 76 minutes of Bush-bashing, but much to my surprise, the things that liberals make fun of Bush for (the malapropisms, his disdain for micro-managing, and his inherent playful spirit), are the very things that endear him to so many people.
NBC reporter Alexandra Pelosi openly admits at the open that she began this project with some deep-seeded biases regarding Republicans. But she balanced thoses biases well - maybe even too well, or we would see this DVD available on more shelves. I would guess that her supervisors back at the network were probably more than a little disappointed with the final product in that George W. Bush comes across as likeable, intelligent, empathetic, and an all around good guy who now happens to be the leader of the free world. The most telling scene into Mr. Bush's persona comes when Alexandra is undergoing some scorn amongst her fellow reporters. She shares in a voice-over how Gov. Bush took her aside and reminded her who her "real" friends truly were. Even though we do not "see" the conversation, Alexandra paints the picture quite well - probably to the chagrin of her mother. After viewing this documentary, I am now more convinced than ever that "what you see is what you get" with GW Bush. This man truly was at the right place at the right time in our nation's history.

This documentary is excellent as we witness Pelosi's first hand experience on the campaign trail of then Presidential candidate George W Bush. Contrary to the belief that mainstream media is liberally biased, we see that the reporters who traveled with Bush tended to favor him personally, and therefore were reluctant to seriously challenge him. We also understand that any questions that were considered challenging resulted in "punishment" from George W Bush. If he didn't appreciate a question (for example with regard to his execution record as Governor of Texas), then he would clam up and the reporter would not be able to get any access to futher information for reporting and stories. On the other hand, we learn that the reportors on the campaign trail with Al Gore, found him personally unlikable - and Gore's reportors therefore tended to cover him in a more negative manner. It is astounding that these men and their personal ability to charm carried a greater influence than policy or governing beliefs when it came to coverage by the media. This DVD is a must see...I found Bush's behavior personally revolting. He reminded me of a spoiled frat boy who always thinks he's the funniest guy in the room when we know he's not. Now this man is the Leader of the Free World. It's quite concerning to say the least.

Alexandra Pelosi, the youngest daughter of U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House Minority Leader, created an interesting documentary of the Bush 2000 campaign. In this video, viewers are shown the election campaign through a perspective that is rarely seen: from the eyes and ears of the media. From the back of the campaign bus, to photo-op opportunities, to the charter airplane, the most striking thing about the media is that it is not a disinterested and objected observer of the news.
Journalists are human beings who are unable to separate their beliefs from their reporting. There are varying degrees of bias, of course, but it is clear from this documentary that the reporters personally disliked Bush's proposals yet liked the man personally. That is mainly because most reporters are -- according to many anonymous profiles -- quite liberal.
Mrs. Pelosi, the documentarian, obviously did not agree with Mr. Bush, and she tried to disagree with him in her cutesy-kind-of-way, although it was clear that he found her to be somewhat of an annoyance after time.
This video provides a very "intimate" portrayal of Bush the candidate -- closer than any I've ever seen. It is quite exciting to see the man when he can be loose and act natural, without having to please the expected norms of the media. And although Ms. Pelosi may be a liberal, this Bush supporter still enjoyed this documentary.

Whether you like or dislike President Bush, this movie is a good watch. While other reviewers claim this film refutes the idea of a liberal media and how Bush wouldn't talk to reporters who threw him hardballs, it simply isnt the whole picture. Back in the 1930s when FDR had a press corps, he would throw them off the boat (literally) and into the water if they were unfair. Being on his campaign bus(or FDR's boat) is a priviledge, and its good that most of the time Ms. Perosi knows this and stays within her bounds.
I found President Bush to be remarkably charismatic and charming, and his humour to be playful and friendly. What one may call being a selfish frat boy, most others would call a real personality. This film serves as a good reminder of how politicians aren't really God like untouchable people, but that they do in fact stain their shirt, have their tie crooked, and enjoy cheetos and bologna sandwiches.
Buy this movie and enjoy it, in time it will be a great way to look back upon elections past and, like others have said, its very unlikely that another film like this will be made.
