Get the real scoop on the year's top political stories
Like the previous five editions of this highly regarded anthology, The Best American Political Writing 2007 draws on a wide variety of publications and political viewpoints to present the year's most insightful and entertaining articles on the current political scene, including coverage of the 2006 elections, America's continuing struggles in Iraq and Afghanistan, and profiles of Hillary Clinton, John McCain, John Edwards, and other presidential hopefuls.
