With the federal election looming, pollies Australia wide are braving the morning cold to shake hands and take photos at train stations. How do they prepare mentally for the daily meet and greets? Lots of coffee?

We wonder what it is like physically and mentally on the campaign trail. I know talking about politics exhausts me after a few minutes. And they do this every day! What is that like?

This morning Jamie chats to John Hewson, former Liberal leader who campaigned in the 1993 election. We hear the ups and the downs and what it is like to live the election every single day.
