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.

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