Gov. Mike Morris (George Clooney) shows his young-buck spokesman (Ryan Gosling) the all-scheming side of politics while running his presidential campaign.

Campaign lesson learned: Even close friends and colleagues are capable of betrayal, taking a page from William Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," it's best to "beware the ides of March."
