John McCain and Steve Schmidt, both the focus of HBO’s latest film, Game Change following the 2008 election, have reacted this week to the release of the film. Lawrence Odonell on MSNBC spoke with what Steve Schmidt, played by Woody Harrelson in the film and arguably the central character of the film (alongside Sarah Palin). In the interview Schmidt, campaign runner for McCain in 2008, indicates that much of the film is 100% accurate. John McCain wouldn’t say as much but wouldn’t deny the information in the film either saying “I’m sorry he would make a statement like that”. Here’s the full clip from the broadcast.
