Product Description
From the host of MSNBC’s The Last Word with Lawrence O'Donnell, an important and enthralling new account of the presidential election that changed everything, the race that created American politics as we know it today

The 1968 U.S. Presidential election was the young Lawrence O’Donnell’s political awakening, and in the decades since it has remained one of his abiding fascinations.  For years he has deployed one of America’s shrewdest political minds to understanding its dynamics, not just because it is fascinating in itself, but because in it is contained the essence of what makes America different, and how we got to where we are now. Playing With Fire represents O’Donnell’s master class in American electioneering, embedded in the epic human drama of a system, and a country, coming apart at the seams in real time.

Nothing went according to the script. LBJ was confident he'd dispatch with Nixon, the GOP frontrunner; Johnson's greatest fear and real nemesis was RFK. But Kennedy and his team, despite their loathing of the president, weren't prepared to challenge their own party’s incumbent. Then, out of nowhere, Eugene McCarthy shocked everyone with his disloyalty and threw his hat in the ring to run against the president and the Vietnam War. A revolution seemed to be taking place, and LBJ, humiliated and bitter, began to look mortal. Then RFK leapt in, LBJ dropped out, and all hell broke loose. Two assassinations and a week of bloody riots in Chicago around the Democratic Convention later, and the old Democratic Party was a smoldering ruin, and, in the last triumph of old machine politics, Hubert Humphrey stood alone in the wreckage.

Suddenly Nixon was the frontrunner, having masterfully maintained a smooth façade behind which he feverishly held his party’s right and left wings in the fold, through a succession of ruthless maneuvers to see off George Romney, Nelson Rockefeller, Ronald Reagan, and the great outside threat to his new Southern Strategy, the arch-segregationist George Wallace.  But then, amazingly, Humphrey began to close, and so, in late October, Nixon pulled off one of the greatest dirty tricks in American political history, an act that may well meet the statutory definition of treason.  The tone was set for Watergate and all else that was to follow, all the way through to today.

Playing With Fire is the perfect holiday gift!

Op-ed: Not a Straight White Man in Hollywood? Well, Good Luck - Advocate.com

They say, “There are no small parts only small actors. ” Well, I have played a lot of small parts, but I am not a small actor. I read in The Hollywood Reporter that Chris Rock aired the industry’s race problem in public, by declaring, “It’s a white industry. But when do they ever question whether an audience will “get” a white straight man’s sense of humor. So I must pose the question, Why do straight white men’s opinions hold more water than the sensibilities of the rest of us. The industry has always said you can’t be black and star in a movie and then have it make money. The bigwigs see Neil Patrick Harris, Rosie O’Donnell, and other out stars but still can’t shake the idea that you can’t be openly LGBT and a major moneymaking star (because in the end, that’s really what matters in this town: the bottom line). I have worked steadily as an out gay actor — even if it was acting in small roles of managers and doctors playing third fiddle to younger, more handsome men playing great roles in films tailored for straight men. But there are more than just straight men in the world, which means there have to be entertainment options for the rest of us: we all want to see stories about ourselves, to feel like we are part of a community. Oprah Winfrey in The Butler and Selma, the success of Matt Bomer, Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games, Helen Mirren in the Prime Suspect series shows us that there are swaths of people in this world who are not white, not straight, not male, not... I think we all want to see stories about ourselves, and feel like we are a part of a greater community. If a guy were Asian, or Latino or any other race and was able to work with the best, he should also have the opportunity to step up to the plate to play a superhero. Not only men can be action stars (witness Lawrence in The Hunger Games ), and they don’t have to all be young straight guys (there’s Ian McKellen in The Hobbit ). These are only some of the biggest film franchises in the world. I think most people want to see great stories that make us laugh and cry. I don’t think all of America really cares if the actor is another race or LGBT. There are three types of people: Folks who love gay people, those who hate us, and those who don’t really care.
