Paste Magazine has published their review of The Political Machine 2008. It's a quick, but great review of the game which you can purchase for yourself here.
"The Political Machine
observes the whole affair without editorializing in favor of one party
or another. When it does tweak the election’s unsavory aspects, it’s
with a “pox on both your houses” attitude. All candidates can hire PR
gurus, smear merchants and thugs to disrupt polling on election day.
Winning is all that matters. Despite all this—or because of
it—elections often come down to one or two key battleground states.
Watching the returns come in on election day is almost as
nerve-wracking as the real thing."
