Nicolle Wallace: Game Change Film 'True Enough To Make Me Squirm'


The morning after the airing of HBO's "Game Change," former McCain-Palin campaign senior adviser Nicolle Wallace weighed in on the veracity of the film that chronicled the ill-fated GOP presidential campaign.

The exchange between Wallace and George Stephanopoulos on ABC's This Week Sunday:

STEPHANOPOULOS: Well, the Palin campaign didn't like it. How true to life?

WALLACE: Well, true enough to make me squirm. But, you know, look, this isn't a movie about campaign staff, and this isn't even really a movie about McCain and Palin. This is a movie about the vast gray area in which 99 percent of our politics actually takes place. And I think that what gets boiled down or sometimes the fights or the instant analysis or the black and white, who's up and who's down.

But the truth is -- and I think everyone around this table has had some experience in their political careers -- where you're just feeling your way through a very gray area and you're doing your best. And this campaign was certainly one of those instances for me.
