HBO Options 2008 Election Movie

I guess the success and award fever over Recount has inspired HBO to keep on cranking out politi-porn. There's already a film in the works called The Special Relationship about the Clinton's and Blair's (as in Tony, for you Americans too lazy to care about world politics) and now Variety reported earlier this evening on a new option the cabler has picked up: Game Change: Obama and the Clintons, McCain and Palin, and the Race of a Lifetime.

It's based on a book that won't even be out until next year by two journalists, one a Time editor and the other New York magazine's political writer. I can't see into the future so I'm wondering what HBO will do when Obama is no longer able to run, Hilary Clinton has given up and Sarah Palin has been kicked in the head by a moose and presidential races go back to two boring old white guys, no recount and a nation trying to figure who the lesser of two evils is.

Get Recount at iTunes.
