The road to the White House

I liked the last couple of Time magazine cover issues which featured the 3 people making news in US politics on the cover with the appropriate descriptions for all of them. I think it aptly sums up the current scenario for the 2008 presidential elections.

Barack Obama: The Contender
Hillary Clinton: The Fighter
John McCain: The Phoenix

Either ways everyone is in to create history (if not already have) with some unique facts. Sen. John McCain (72) would be the oldest person to take office if elected. Sen. Barack Obama (47) would be the first black U.S. president as well as one of the youngest. Sen. Hillary Clinton (61) would be the first female U.S. president.

Opinion polls, primaries, caucuses, delegates, superdelegates, endorsements, exit polls, democratic convention, nomination, and perhaps Florida & Michigan shall take a backseat in the next couple of weeks as the elections turn the page and show the red/blue map all over.

The United States presidential election of 2008, scheduled for Tuesday, November 4, 2008, will be the 56th consecutive quadrennial United States presidential election and will select the President of the United States and Vice President of the United States.

CNN has some excellent coverage of the campaign issues. Click here to read more about it.

It has never been so exciting.
