Description by OLDIES.com:
Journeys with George is an unprecedented, all access pass to candidate George W. Bush in the months before he won the closest and most controversial presidential election in history. The documentary looks unflinchingly at the built - in conflicts, contradictions and seductions of big - time political reporting - and the tactics used by candidates to win over reporters over the course of months and months of campaigning.
When NBC asked California Democratic congresswoman Nancy Pelosi's daughter, Alexandra, to follow George W. Bush on the campaign trail, no one knew for sure that her subject was going to be America's next president. But after a controversial election, Bush became just that. This candid and surprisingly intimate documentary illuminates the tumultuous world of big budget politics, captures firsthand the pressures of being a political figure, and paints a revealing portrait of a man who managed to make the leap from wealthy Texas businessman to President of the United States of America.
