CAMPAIGNS, CANDIDATES & THE PRESIDENCY (Compton’s NewMedia, CD-ROM for PC, $39.95) If you think Newt Gingrich and Bill Clinton have their share of scandalous episodes, wait till you spin Campaigns. Among other juicy tidbits, you’ll learn that Grover Cleveland had an illegitimate son and that Andrew Jackson’s opponents dubbed his wife an adulterer and his mother a prostitute. Lending serious balance and perspective to the mix is historian Arthur Schlesinger Jr. on video. In addition to being chockful of fascinating political memorabilia, the disc offers a trivia game in which the winner gets to be why, President, of course. Compelling, entertaining, and informative, ( American history on disc has rarely been more fun. A- -Harold Goldberg
