It's every reporter's dream. And every political party's worst nightmare.

A national convention with no clear nominee for the Oval Office.

When the incumbent President who is a stone cold lock for re-election suddenly drops out due to health reasons at the last minute, both political parties are thrown for a loop. With the ultimate prize up for grabs, all sorts of candidates scramble to throw their hats in the ring. Some qualified, some not. And once the infighting starts, decorum goes out the window. Political dirty tricks are raised to an art form, as nothing is off the table with the Presidency at stake.

It's a political free-for-all.

Problem is, no one seems to have enough support to win enough delegates in order to secure the nomination on the first ballot. The result could be a brokered convention for both parties.

With the media salivating over the prospect of secret backroom deals in smoke-filled rooms, both parties are scrambling to put forth a strong candidate. But no one can agree on who that should be. Does the country want a traditional establishment politician or an outsider? And are those choices in line with the party leaders?

Bring on the backroom deals, and pass the ashtray. Got a light?

The fix is in... or is it?

With the Republican establishment playing fast and loose with the rules and shady bargaining going on behind closed doors, ex-President Scott Maxwell and his wife, former network TV reporter Jillian Turner (from "The Race") step in and try desperately to unite the Grand Old Party while the Democratic elites do their best to steal the nomination for their preferred candidate from the people's choice.

Throw in a few wild cards like a pot smoking Senator and a philandering Bible-belt Governor, and you've got the best reality show the country has ever seen.

The result is a pair of spectacular train wrecks Americans can't stop watching.

When the dust clears, will it be politics as usual, or can the will of the people triumph over all?
