The period between Election Day 2000 and the determination of the winner in the Presidential contest was a 36-day marathon for journalists who were in Florida and Washington, DC to cover the race. The new book Deadlock is a behind-the-scenes account of those weeks. Washington Post political reporters David von Drehle, Dan Balz, Ellen Nakashima, and Jo Becker all contributed to this book. They join Susan Page to talk about their experiences and observations.
