The New York Times was granted unlimited access to the Christine Quinn for Mayor campaign from the very early stages. Of course, it was widely expected that she would win election. The Documentary, "Hers To Lose", is an extraordinary glimpse at so many levels of a campaign, the personal toll its takes, her relationship and running as a woman and openly lesbian.

The documentary is thirty minutes long but moves very quickly. You owe it to yourself as a citizen to watch this really great job by the New York Times. I hope the media giant plans to give us more of these documentaries.
