Hundreds of people work for hours and hours to produce the political theater that gets voters to the polls. Nicole Busch reveals what life on the road is like and demonstrate the love/hate relationship between campaigns and the media. Neither side trusts the other, but they both need and feed off of each other.

The most high stakes events are the debates. Experts reveal what goes on in the secret debate prep sessions. Debate coaches who prepped a real President coach Stossel. Stossel learns from his debate prep that style and confidence often matter more than substance.
