Candidate (disambiguation) – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A son following in his father’s political footsteps, and ignoring his father’s advice. A political edge that gets watered down to pander to the masses. A mistimed and forgettable affair with a staffer.

None of this refers to the current electoral climate; It’s written into the plot of a 36 year old movie. Robert Redford’s The Candidate. Unfortunately, its equally prescient warnings of the banalization of US politics have been largely ignored.
