As the political campaign season heats up, the candidates are trying to dig up as much dirt on each other as they can. Opposition research has become a staple of almost all elections and two researchers -- Alan Huffman and Michael Rejebian -- know just how dirty politics can get.
Huffman and Rejebian joined The Daily Circuit to talk about their new book, "We're With Nobody," which chronicles the nearly two decades they've spent digging up dirt on politicians.
The BusinessWeek review calls it "a clean memoir of a filthy business is a welcome perspective shift: It illuminates without slaking our blood thirst. The argument that their research into the sex lives or undisclosed dealings of politicians--and the unscrupulous Swiftboating that can result from it--is beneficial to democracy is debatable. The authors contribute something more valuable by exposing the mechanics behind their profession."
