Any alternate history on it, in my opinion.

The Making of the President 1968

Obama High's debate team:

"Now let me be clear...I...I...um...uh...now let me be clear.  I strongly condemn the affirmative in the strongest possible terms, and I am closely monitoring their arguments.  Let me be clear on this."

Try Nixonland by Rick Perlstein. It's more of a Nixon biography, but it does describe the 1968 presidential election in great detail, especially the George Wallace campaign and the Democratic National Convention.

I read part of that book. I liked how it focused on individuals, with a chapter devoted to Reagan (though it's possibly tainted with bias), and with other people. I like one of the pictures in the middle where it has Romney, Reagan, and Rocky and the caption reads "some anti-war figures wore suits" referring to Romney.

An American Melodrama. Similar to White's Making of the President series, though.

Here's to the State of Richard Nixon

Divided They Stand by David English is very good. can't say if it's the best, but it's good.  think I read it at age 15.

“They cheated us again and again, made decisions behind our back, presenting us with completed facts. That’s the way it was with the expansion of NATO in the East, with the deployment of military infrastructure at our borders. They always told us the same thing: 'Well, this doesn't concern you.'" -Vladimir Putin

That's a good book. I like how the John Birch Society supported Wallace despite his economic views.
