The Battle for America: The Story of an Extraordinary Election - Haynes Johnson, Dan Balz

Balz and Johnson had unprecedented access to both candidates, a position that let them observe and report incidents such as the behind-the-scenes battle between Obama and Clinton to secure Senator Kennedy’s endorsement
