Die Qual der Wahl

Cam Brady und Marty Huggins spielen in Die Qual der Wahl zwei rivalisierende Politiker in North Carolina, die sich Hoffnungen auf eine Nominierung zum Präsidentschaftskandidaten machen. Während Cam Brady ein alter Hase im Politikgeschäft ist und bereits zum fünften Mal für einen Sitz im Kongress kandidiert, gibt es nun ausnahmsweise mal einen aussichtsreichen Gegenkandidaten. Der Außenseiter und Familienmensch Marty Huggins könnte dem erfahrenen Politiker mit seiner bodenständigen Art doch tatsächlich den Rang ablaufen. Cam Brady muss sich nun ganz schön ins Zeug legen, um die wertvollen Wählerstimmen von Farmern, Bänkern, Frauen, Veteranen und philippinischen Karussellbremsern gewinnen zu können.

Moi, député

Lorsque le député chevronné Cam Brady commet une gaffe monumentale en public à l'approche des élections, un tandem de PDG milliardaires entend bien en profiter pour placer leur candidat et étendre leur influence sur leur fief, en Caroline du Nord. Leur homme n'est autre que le candide Marty Huggins qui dirige l'office du tourisme du coin. Si, au départ, Marty ne semble pas le candidat idéal, il ne tarde pas à se révéler un redoutable concurrent pour le charismatique Cam grâce à l'aide de ses bienfaiteurs, d'un directeur de campagne sans vergogne et des relations de ses parents dans la politique. Alors que le jour du scrutin approche, les deux hommes s'engagent dans un combat impitoyable : désormais, tous les coups sont permis entre Cam et Marty qui n'hésitent plus à s'insulter et à en venir aux mains dans un affrontement à mort.

Candidato a sorpresa

Il volgare e ignorante deputato Cam Brady è sicuro che otterrà l'ennesima conferma del suo mandato, nonostante una gaffe irrimediabile, ma non ha fatto i conti con lo strapotere del capitale. I miliardari fratelli Motch, infatti, decisi ad arricchirsi vendendo mezza Carolina del Nord ai cinesi, hanno bisogno di un burattino meno compromesso di Brady da inviare a Washington perché faccia il loro gioco e lo individuano nell'ingenuo Marty Huggins, il figlio idealista di un loro ricco amico. La battaglia tra i due candidati al seggio si tramuta in men che non si dica in una gara spietata a far sfigurare l'avversario nel peggior modo possibile. E più i colpi inferti sono bassi, più aumenta il gradimento nei sondaggi del candidato a cui è riuscito il tiro meschino. Un massacro pubblico che investe immancabilmente la sfera privata dei due protagonisti.
