War stories from campaign trails past

Hosted by

John Dickerson is the moderator of CBS's Face the Nation, the political director of CBS News and a veteran Washington journalist for Slate and Time magazine before that. His work covering this year's wild and crazy presidential campaign inspired him to look back at the past. In his new book, Whistlestop: My Favorite Stories from Presidential Campaign History, he reminds us that the country has survived worse elections than this one.
