The second section examines takes a more social scientific approach, looking at theories to the Clinton health reform campaign. The final section examines the media and presidential politics. It introduces the changes wrought by the structural and political forces of the past 50 years, examines the news media's role in the nomination process, the nature of presidential news and its impact, political advertising and presidential debates.
