August 10, 2001-- The Center for Governmental Studies at the University of Virginia announces a kick-off event and panel discussion for Larry J. Sabato s new book, OVERTIME! The Election 2000 Thriller (Longman Publishers, New York) on Monday, August 13th at the National Press Clubs Holeman Room in Washington, DC at 2 p.m. The book includes revealing chapters by Americas most astute political reporters and insiders, including:

* Chuck Babington, senior political correspondent of washingtonpost.com, traveled with Bush and Gore during the general election campaign and reveals behind-the-scenes information on the controversial Bush RATS ad and the presidential debates.

* Tim Burger of the New York Daily News gives never-before reported details on the incident that may well have cost Bush the popular vote-the last-minute DUI charge.

* Larry Sabato and Joshua Scott of the UVA Center for Governmental Studies bring a well-rounded perspective to the text, breaking down the exit poll results and creating a brand new "Political Map of the United States" in the process.

* Diana Owen, political scientist at Georgetown University, carefully examines the news medias dismal performance in the election-night debacle, exploring the implications of repeated mistaken calls.

* Ronald Klain and Jeremy Bash, key legal advisors for Gore-Lieberman 2000, retell the labor of Sisyphus that the Gore team faced during the Florida recounts, including answers to questions about the Gore strategy.

* G eorge Terwilliger, a lead Bush legal counsel, gives a detailed account of the post-election crisis from the perspective of the Bush camp, including analysis on the legal proceedings, from Florida County Courts to the United States Supreme Court.

Chapters were also contributed by political journalist Jake Tapper of Salon.com and CNN, as well as one of Americas foremost political analysts, Rhodes Cook of The Rhodes Cook Letter.
