The Road to Chadville: Campaign 2000 as Seen From Cyberspace In July 1999, Slate chief political correspondent Jacob Weisberg filed his first dispatch from the 2000 presidential campaign trail: "Styles of Stiff," about the stylistic differences between Bill Bradley (whom he called "merely boring") and Al Gore ("actually a bore"). Over the next 18 months Weisberg followed Democrats, Republicans, Greens, and Reformers around the country, judging their stump speeches, refereeing their debates, and calling their bluffs—all the way to Florida and the U.S. Supreme Court. The Road to Chadville is a collection of his 154 articles, which were originally posted in Slate's "Ballot Box" department and includes an introduction by Slate editor Michael Kinsley.

Price: Free.
