What Went Wrong

I'm in the mood for some good political postmortems. Big races, little races, recent news, ancient history, whatever. Probably U.S. though.

It's pretty early obviously but I'm keeping up with current news on the recent election. These are the kinds of articles I like and the impetus for this question (but longer or more detailed is better): How the Secret Service Said Goodbye to Mitt Romney
, and How a Race in the Balance Went to Obama
in the New York Times.
On the 2008 election I watched the movie Game Change
(but haven't read the book) and I read the 8 part Newsweek
election overview for that race (which I guess is no longer available online). I'm usually pretty good about following traditional news sources but tend to miss long format pieces in literary magazines, etc. and books.
I'm guessing there's a lot of good writing I'm missing from down ballot races and older elections.
