Not only does he study the stump speeches, but he reads and thinks about the books written by and about the candidate ...

"What I was looking for in Hillary’s books was a consistent author’s voice. I believe writers always reveal more about themselves than they intend. ... It’s in their word choices, the tone of the stories they tell, the metaphors they use, ... If Hillary really wrote those books — and after reading them, I strongly believe she did — then her character must be in there somewhere, no matter what image she may have wanted to project."

The series now includes Hillary, Bernie, Ted, and the others.
